The League Two leaders now need just a point from Tuesday's trip to Dagenham to clinch an automatic place following goals from Sam Williams, Ryan Dickson and a penalty from Billy Clarke.
Scott said: "On the last day of last season I left our dressing room door open so the lads could hear Hereford celebrating promotion. It hurt me a lot and I know it hurt them and they've worked all season to make sure they get that feeling.
"If we'd come into the dressing room after the game having slipped up and seen the other teams winning then the mood would be very different. As it is the gap is still there and the game in hand is still there and we're one game less.
"I knew it might not happen. The teams up there with us are good teams and I expected them to win but the only game we were interested in was our game against Accrington.
"The same will apply when we go to Dagenham and if we put in the right kind of performance then I'm sure we will give the fans something to cheer about and pick up some of that feeling that Hereford experienced last season."
