Scrimshaw: We need to keep going and working on it

26 October 2021

Forward Jake Scrimshaw reflected on a hard-earned win for the Iron, with his goal securing the victory against Crawley Town at home on Saturday.

The 21-year-old is enjoying his time with the club on a season-long loan from Bournemouth and his second goal for the club secured the three points this weekend.

Reflecting on the 2-1 success, he told iFollow Iron: “I think the win was overdue so everyone's feeling positive with the result. It’s nice to get three points. I was buzzing to get another goal. I thought it was due so when it fell to me, I was so happy to see it hit the back of the net."

Commenting on his strike, which came just moments after a similar shot was thwarted, he said: “My first attempt I just tried to lift it over the keeper and he may have got a little touch on it and then it was cleared off the line. Then the ball came straight to me after that and I managed to score. We want to score goals and we want to win matches. We need to score as many goals as we can in the match and hopefully that’ll help us get three points.

“I thought it was a good team performance, we moved the ball well, we got it wide and in the box, and we created lots of chances.”

He added: “It was a difficult last 20 minutes, we just dug deep and then we saw out the result. I was just so happy to get the three points for the first time (with him in the team) at home. It’s an unbelievable feeling - it's the best thing ever. It was a great team performance altogether.”  

The Iron had performed well in their last two matches, drawing away at Barrow and losing, yet deserving much more, when they faced the top of the league side Forest Green.

Scrimshaw said: “I feel like in the last two games, Forest Green and Barrow, we’ve had good performances. It’s nice to have a strong team performance and get the three points as well. Everyone is happy to get the three points and hopefully we keep building off that.”

Looking ahead to the next game away on Saturday against Colchester United, he said: “We were in on Monday and we go again to get ready for the game against Colchester. I think we can take a lot of confidence from the last three games. They have been good performances but we need to keep going and working on it.”
