Daws proud of ‘excellent’ Iron as they confirm play off spot


Interim boss Nick Daws said he was proud of his players as they secured a League One play off place at the expense of opponents Plymouth Argyle, following a 2-0 win at Glanford Park.

Goals from Hakeeb Adelakun and Ivan Toney were enough to all but end the visitors’ hopes of making the top six and confirm the Iron’s involvement for a second consecutive season.

And Daws, who has been nominated for April’s Manger of the Month award was delighted with his sides performance.

“I thought we were excellent from start to finish. We got two cracking goals, could have scored more and probably should have had more”, Daws told the press.

“I’m so pleased for everybody connected with the club.

“I thought the boys did everything we asked of them right from the first minute, showing bravery in possession, penetrated the lines, got the ball in behind and switched the play.

“We worked really hard. We share the responsibilities for certain things and Andy (Dawson) has had a major impact on how we are out of possession. It shows what an outstanding coach he is as he works on it with them constantly.

“The boys have belief they can keep clean sheets, which is important going into the game, and also that they can win, which also gives that added confidence.

“We have outstanding talent, not only on the pitch but also on the bench and in the stands. They’ve been outstanding in their attitude to supporting everyone.”

Daws also reserved praise for the supporters for creating an ‘incredible’ atmosphere inside Glanford Park.

“It’s been a while since we’ve experienced that and in its own right it had the feeling of a play-off game.

“If every game here could be under the lights in this situation, it just creates a special atmosphere. I always felt that as a player, and the players certainly responded to it.”
