Madden: I'll come good at Scunthorpe

IRELAND cap Paddy Madden admits that he has yet to spark into life at Scunthorpe United following his January move from Yeovil Town.

The Iron paid a reported fee of £300,000 to land Madden last month, but he has yet to score in five games for the club and last weekend against Chesterfield was his first start.

"It was good to get a start, but I just want to get a run of games and then you will start to see the best of me," said Madden. "I always work hard and if I can get a run in the team, the fans can look forward to me scoring. It's just about staying in the team.

"It is a great opportunity for me here. I am a winner, I have always been that way on the pitch and I am at a club that is ambitious and that wants to win.

"It is a bit different in League Two – the pitches are very bobbly, not like in the Championship – so you have to keep your concentration to the maximum to get the ball under control. You just have to try and adapt to the situation and the pitches that you are playing on."

Madden, capped by Giovanni Trapattoni against Wales last year, was Yeovil's top scorer last season as they won promotion to the Championship, but he was axed by the Glovers this season after falling out with manager Gary Johnson.
