Christian Ribeiro wants to ensure first goal isn't his last for Scunthorpe United
Having broken his goalscoring duck at the weekend, Scunthorpe United full-back Christian Ribeiro hopes more will follow.
The Iron defender notched his first ever senior goal as his side made it three games unbeaten under Brian Laws with a 2-2 draw at home to Notts County.
After struggling to find the net earlier in the season, United have now scored eight since Laws took charge – with contributions coming from throughout the team.
It is something they must maintain, according to Ribeiro, particularly with top scorer Leon Clarke's loan due to expire next month.

"There's lots of players here who can score, but that's been our problem so far, we haven't scored enough throughout the whole team," said the 22-year-old.
"The centre-backs, full-backs and midfielders, we haven't scored enough, but we're trying to change that.
"That's the sign of a successful team, they score goals from anywhere. If we can start to do that I'm sure it will really improve our season.
"That was my first ever senior goal.
"I enjoyed it but it came quite early in the game so I didn't have chance to really think about it!
"I should have scored a few more this season already, so hopefully I can get a few more to help the team.
"Some of the chances I've had before I've snatched at a little bit, so it was nice to finally get one."
Scunthorpe twice led against the Magpies, but a red card for Paul Reid with 20 minutes remaining saw them come under sustained pressure.
Lee Hughes finally made that tell with his second of the game.
Ribeiro though, says the Iron still go into tomorrow's clash with Bury full of confidence.
"Everyone's really positive," he said.
"There's a long way to go, of course, but we really are on the up.
"It feels like we've turned a corner. There were some times earlier on in the season when we thought that, but I think we're all in a strong position now.
"I think Notts County are one of the best sides we've played this year. I really fancy them to get automatic promotion.
"Coming away from it, knowing we were 2-1 up, we'd be disappointed not to take three points, but a draw keeps our unbeaten run going.
"They're a very good side and it just shows how far we've come that we're looking at teams like that thinking we should have beat them.
"It was a mistake from me for the second goal when I should have been marking him a bit tighter. But there were lots of positives from the game.
"We've got to take all those good things on to Bury, learn from the mistakes we made and make sure we don't do them again, but I think we are on the up.
"Tomorrow is a really big, important game. But we're at home and we know we're expecting to win."
