Scunthorpe forward Lee Novak was happy to mark his return from injury on Saturday with the goal that secured the Iron a point at AFC Wimbledon.
Novak did come off the bench against Oxford the previous week, but only played for five minutes at the end of that game, as United chased a winner.
Nick Daws opted to give the forward 20 minutes to make a difference on Saturday, and he did just that, scoring the equalising goal ten minutes after he came on.
Talking to the Iron’s iFollow account, Novak said: “It feels good. I got a bit of a run out last week which was unexpected to be honest.
“To be able to get on the pitch and contribute to getting a positive result after being 1-0 down is great.
Nick (Daws) and Andy (Dawson) told me to get a goal and luckily enough the ball came to me and I put it in. It was a great ball in by Duane (Holmes) as well.”
Moving forward, the striker is keen to start games between now and the end of the season, but knows he has a challenge of dislodging Tom Hopper and Ivan Toney.
“I want to get back in the team but I’m not stupid.
Ivan has been playing brilliantly and Hops has too. I have been out for a few months so it’s been difficult.
“If I can contribute with little bits when I come on, and show Nick and Andy what I can do, then I will be pleased if I can get back into the team.”
