Scunthorpe star Wright: Man Utd clash lifted my game
Wright went wild after opening the scoring with a wonder goal - his first for the club.
The stylish midfielder told tribalfootball.com: "To be honest it was more of a relief scoring a goal because it's been a long time coming.
"I was happy with the strike but went over into the crowd because I knew all my friends and family were over there."
Wright was impressive in front of the national TV cameras on the night.
He added: "I actually find that the better team you play the more time you get on the ball.
"For me I felt more comfortable playing against a side like United because in the Championship sometimes it can get a bit messy. It was very much a passing game so it felt good to be involved.
"However it was a great experience playing against players like that and I thought we match them well just a little unfortunate with the result."
