Bell praises spirit after Scunthorpe point

18 October 2017

Defender Amari’i Bell has praised the spirit of his teammates as they fought back to seal a late point at Scunthorpe on Tuesday night.

Lee Novak had given the hosts at 1-0 lead at Glanford Park in a first half where chances were few and far between.

But it was Jordy Hiwula who took advantage of a defensive error five minutes from time to equalise and send Town back to Lancashire with a point, one which Bell thought his side deserved.

“We showed great togetherness and spirit tonight,” Bell said.

“We definitely thought we could have got more from the game and got all three points.”

In stoppage time, both sides had good chances to win the game, but it was to be a valuable point, which once again highlighted the never say die attitude in the squad.

“We score late goals, and we keep going no matter what,” added Bell.

“We do the right things. That tires the other teams out and that’s why we score late goals.”

The defender has admitted Town need to improve in certain areas and believes work can be done ahead of the visit to Shrewsbury on Saturday.

“With their goal we killed ourselves with a silly little mistake so we need to tighten up in a defensive areas.

“Shrewsbury Town are in great form we have to make sure we don’t give away any sloppy goals, tighten up, and go there and give a good account of ourselves.”
