Gigg Lane(11,840)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers: Iheanacho(10), Edouard(19,44), Danns(84)

First Half:

It was buzzing around Gigg Lane after the fans witnessed a penalty shoot-out victory here for their beloved Bury on Monday night. Bury kicked the game into action with the kick-off, it wasn't long before Bury had their first effort on goal but the Blackpool goalkeeper was equal to it. It wasn't long after that thought that the home side found the back of the net with a beautiful finish form on-loan Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho! 1-0 to the home side who have looked dominant from the start here. It didn't take long for Bury to find the net again and after a great display in the cup on Monday, Odsonne Edouard found himself not just on the team-sheet but on the score-sheet too. 2-0 to the home side in this one and they do not look finished at all. The Shakers continued to dominate the proceeding and had shot after shot on the Blackpool goal. It did have take till the 44th minute for the home side to get their third of the day when young French forward Odsonne Edouard struck again to make it all but over at half time with the score at 3-0 to Bury

H/T: 3-0

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended a dominant display from the home side! If it wasn't for the experienced Ukranian Shovkovsky in the Blackpool goal it could easily be 8 or 9 by now! The defenders at Blackpool were having a torrid time of it as Bury just kept applying the pressure on them without a rest. Blackpool managed to get a shot away and by this point Bury were on a astonishing 20 shots on goal with 16 of them on target at this point! what a game the away keeper is having despite conceding 3 already. Bury went on to have more shots before finding the net again to seal the deal when Neil Danns struck in the 84th minute. The experienced midfielder and club captain getting another goal to add to his tally thus far. Bury end the game with 28 shots and 19 on target in what was a one-way traffic kind of game!

F/T:4-0

What a performance from our lads tonight against a very strong looking Blackpool side on paper, but to dominate them the way they had done was quite the achievement as we continue our return to form. The gaffer was dleighted after the game and had this to say  , "After a great penalty win the for the young lads on Monday it was vital we kept momentum going with the older lads in the first team in League One competition. We did just that and I've never seen such a dominant display by my side and I'm delighted we came away victorious and to score 4 was amazing but It easily could have been 10 or more! The Blackpool keeper was outstanding today and deserves a lot of credit for keeping the score down to just 4. I'm also very pleased that Edouard was able to find the net tonight, this lad has talent and he will only grow like we said when we brought him here from PSG and I cannot wait to see him play more and more for us during his progression a great performance all round from the lad and from our team as a whole, just very delighted to be back on a little run of form which is hard in the division with the amount of games we play on a weekly basis."

MATCH-DAY 9: LEAGUE ONE

Highbury Stadium(5,663)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers: Rashford(20), Grant(53)

First Half:

It was a late kick-off here at the Highbury Stadium , with a travelling Bury side that has had to make a number of changes due to injury to fitness problems. The Bury gaffer Nick Justice still had high hopes for some kind of result against a very strong looking Fleetwood Town side. The next game for the visitors is an FA Cup game against Premier League club Crystal Palace, which will be a big games for the League One outfit. With that In mind we feel this was a small reason behind the starting XI choices. With that the home side got the game underway, It wasn't long before they tested Jerome Prior in the Bury net, but with no prevail. It was an edgy fixture with both sides hoping to try and break  the deadlock and it didn't take too long before that was too happen when on-loan Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford struck a beautiful shot into the bottom corner to make it 0-1 after just 20 minutes. A sign of things to come? It remained a very open first half with both goalkeepers doing their bid in order to maintain the scoreline. It was to remain 0-1 to the visitors at the half time whistle.

H/T: 0-1

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended an end-to-end game between two evenly matched sides on the day despite the lack of first team players in the Bury line-up with a jam packed schedule it's expected often that they may have to rotate on a game to game basis. The game didn't take long for the second goal to come, but it wasn't to further the away sides lead- in fact the game was drawn level to make it 1-1 with Grant the goalscorer for Fleetwood. This fixture earlier on ended 1-1 and resulted in a penalty win for Bury and with this being a league fixture that isn't a possibility so with that we hope to find a winner in the 90 minutes. Despite an end-to-end game it was to remain 1-1 thanks too some great work from the men between the sticks. Full-time.

F/T:1-1

A great performance from the younger lads with very few first team players on the pitch, it is great to see them play their socks of to earn their side a brilliant and well earned point away from home; we sought after the gaffer at full-time to hear his thoughts on the game , "After a lot of games in a short period and with a big visit of Palace on Monday night, we had to ensure we had our reserves fit and ready and with some of the first team players getting a deserved rest as we look ahead to some very big games against some the of the pace setters thus far, such as Shorpe United just after Crystal Palace. We are ready for the coming schedule and we will work hard with all the lads to get the best out of them. As for today I am delighted we managed to come away from home with such a young side and take a point from a very good side in this division. We hope to continue on from this and try our best to cause some kind of upset in the cup against a strong Palace team on Monday night."

A brilliant performance from the Bury keeper Jerome Prior yet again leads to the young French goalie being voted MOTM yet again for the Shakers.

MATCH-DAY 1: FA Cup

2238.gif Bury 0-3 Palace  Image result for crystal palace logo

Gigg Lane(11,840)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers: Puncheon(4,48), Zaha(22)

First Half:

It was buzzing around Gigg Lane with the visit of Premier League outfit Crystal Palace, young fans excited to see some of the Premier League's elite up close and personal on the small Gigg Lane pitch. Much to the surprise of many Palace fielded a very strong starting XI, the likes of French International Steve Mandanda in Goal and Wilfried Zaha and Jason Puncheon in midfield- there was still a sense of optimism in the crowd as the game kicked-off with Crystal Palace taking the kick. It wasn't long till that optimism was slightly dashed with a brilliant strike from Jason Puncheon beat the Bury keeper to make it 0-1 after just 4 minutes. The home side caused a threat on goal through Odsonne Edouard, but it was saved by his fellow Frenchman Steve Mandanda in the Palace net. The away side showed their class difference and struck again in the 22nd minute of the game when Wilfried Zaha struck a nice shot from the edge of the box over the out-stretched Jerome Prior in the Bury net; 0-2 to the visitors and it could be all but over for the League One side here.

H/T: 0-2

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended a dominant display by the Premier League side, and it was not long after the break that it paid off and another from Jason Puncheon to make it 0-3 and put some daylight between the two sides. Despite being three goals down the Bury side continued to fight and try their best with the sub Marcus Rashford going close for the home side. Despite a few chances from both sides, the score-line remained at 0-3 to Crystal Palace and there was to be no upset from League One side Bury tonight. They are out the FA Cup after a tough draw in the first round!

F/T:0-3

We done the best we could against a very strong Crystal Palace side, we here at Bury are proud of the lads and how they went about the game. We didn't just lie down and make it easy for them; we gave them a good game and gave them some problems at times! We spoke to the gaffer after the final whistle and here is what he had to say  , "We fought well tonight but the Crystal Palace side was just too strong for us and the difference in class showed a bit tonight but we still gave it our all and we had to make a number of changes in order to maintain fitness of our players and with our main focus on a possible play-off slot this term, it is important we focus on every league game coming up and we have a big one this Wednesday against Shorpe United here at the Lane, a must win game for us against a very, very strong side in the division and they are on the back of a 5 game winning streak that we hope to end. "

Bury suffer 3-1 defeat to a strong Shorpe side, just days after FA Cup exit

 

MATCH-DAY 10: League One

2238.gif Bury 1-3 Scunny  Image result for scunthorpe united logo

Gigg Lane(11,840)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers:Diamanti(1), Rashford(4), Crouch(43,46)

First Half:

After a tough text at Gigg Lane for Bury against Crystal Palace on Monday night, the League One side had to go again with another tough visitor in the form of the league's most inform side Scun thorpe United managed by one of the best English managers in the game Harry Redknapp. It was a torrid night in the North of England with poor weather conditions as the game kicked-off. It took only 64 seconds for the visitors to find the back of the net when former Italian International Alessandro Diamanti found the back of the net. However that lead wasn't to last too long as an equalizer from on-loan Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford struck in the 4th minute! A very lively start to proceedings at a sell-out crowd at Gigg Lane. It was a very dominant display from an established looking Shorpe United side. With moments to go before half-time former England International Peter Crouch rose well from a corner to head the visitors back in front and just before the half-time whistle.

H/T: 1-2

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended a dominant display by the visiting side; and it was only a matter of moments in the first half when a pass was cut out by the first goalscorer Diamanti who fed the ball into the feet of Peter Crouch who slotted home nicely to put the visitors 1-3 up in the 46th minute. It was a very good display by the away side as they continued to press Bury but with no prevail as it was to end 1-3 in what has been a dismal week thus far for Bury as they face another tough test on Saturday with a game against local rivals Wigan Atheltic.

F/T:0-3

After a tough game against Crystal Palace on Monday that resulted in a 3-0 defeat the last thing Bury needed just two days later was a game against a very much inform Scunny United side, but the football league schedule can be crawl at times and it is going to get harder with a derby at Wigan Athletic up next for the Shakers...we spoke to Justice after the game who had this to say , "We were coming off the back of a tough game against Palace on Monday, but that no excuse we just lost out to the better side on the day. They have some brilliantly experienced players and it's hard for a team with younger players to compete straight away with a side like that but over time it will come and we will claim some of the bigger scalps in the division. This game came at a bad time for us and a great time for them, again not an excuse just a part of the game now days with the busy schedule. But we will have to go again and train hard before our next big game this Saturday and get things back on track again! "

Bury smash rivals Wigan 6-0 away from home!

 

MATCH-DAY 11: LEAGUE ONE

   Image result for wigan athletic logoWigan 0-6 Bury 2238.gif

DW Stadium(25,138)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers:Iheanacho(4,48) Rashford(21,37), Harrison(64), Targett(80)

First Half:

It was a late kick-off the DW Stadium as the away side Bury made short journey and brought with them a large following, which has been a key element so far under Nick Justice. Bury found themselves in a mixed vein of form leading up to this game and many fancied the home side with the likes of Vagner Love and Kerzhakov in their side. It was the away side with the kick-off and they looked up for the game from the off! It wasn't too long after the kick-ff that they found themselves ahead in the game when on-loan Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored in the 4th minute of the game 0-1! The Shakers continued to dominate the Lactics throughout the first 15 minutes of the game. It was just after the 20th minute mark when the visitors struck again and it was the other on-loan striker Marcus Rashford who slotted home to make it 0-2 to Bury! What a start to proceedings for the traveling side. Despite some pressure from the home side they never managed to materialize a decent shot on goal in the first half an hour of the game. It was in fact not that long after the half an hour mark that the away side found the net once more and it was a brace from that man Marcus Rashford! 0-3, the away side are in dreamland here at the DW! It was to remain 0-3 at half-time

H/T: 0-3

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended a dominant display from the travelling Bury! In fact only 3 minutes gone into the second half and Bury got their fourth of the game to really relinquish any chance of a come back from Wigan, when Kelechi Iheanacho got his second of the game 0-4. Wigan Athletic looked a team defeated at this point and their gaffer was on the sidelines screaming and shouting with no prevail. It got even worse when Bury found the net for the fifth time in the game when former New York City attacking-midfielder Jack Harrison scored himself a superb long range shot. 0-5 and its a bad day at the office for a strong looking Wigan side. They lacked any kind of fight going into the last 15 minutes of the game and Bury just toyed with them and played the ball about keeping possession in the game. It eventually got even worse as half the stadium emptied whilst the Bury faithful were chanting in their 1000s as they will be making a very happy short trip home tonight! Just to make their nights even better the Shakers added a sixth to make it 0-6 when on-loan left back Matt Targett got himself into a great position to shoot and that he did and rifled the ball into the top corner! 0-6....It was finally over for the Lactics as the ref blew his whistle for the final time as it ended 0-6 to Bury.

F/T:0-6

An astonishing  performance from the lads away from home tonight against our rivals Wigan Athletic; the lads deserved the win after a tough few games in the league and cup. When Wigan's line-up was announced many feared for us and we went into the game underdogs and that mentality worked for us. We were able to speak with a very thrilled gaffer after the game, "What a win! We didn't expect that at all! We came up against a very strong looking Wigan side on paper and this just goes to show you do not win games on paper. We put a team out there that we felt could win us the game and that they did in spectacular form. We are delighted for the fans after a tough few games for us at Palace and S cu nthorpe they deserved this! We have had a great support since I've arrived here and the fans make the club what it is. We are delighted and thrilled with the performance as a whole and we deserved the win, we go again this Monday in the cup against a strong MK Dons side in which we will see a very different XI from today.   "

Bury's young reserves knocked out in the second round by a strong MK Dons

Image result for mk dons logoMK Dons 3-0 Bury 2238.gif

Stadium MK:(30,500)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers: P.Downing(3), Carruthers (29), Maynard(39)

 

First Half:

It was a full house at Stadium:MK as MK Dons hosted League One side Bury in the EFL Cup, after Bury won 6-0 in the league last time out against Wigan the travelling fans who made the long trip on a cold October, Monday night! But despite the bad weather there was some optimism from the travelling fans. The side fielded by Bury was very young as in the previous round as they defeated Fleetwood on penalties. Where at MK Dons had a very strong looking side with the experience of the likes of Nicky Maynard and Chuks Aneke. MK Dons had the kick-off being the home side... It didn't take long for the Championship side to take an early lead when Paul Downing struck for the Dons in just the 3rd minute, the defender rose above the rest after an early corner to head his side in front. The Dons continued to dominate the first half and it wasn't long before the home side doubled their lead when midfielder Samir Carruthers struck a lovely shot past the Bury keeper giving him no hope. The visiting crowd didn't sound so optimistic by this point but they still remained in full voice. That soon changed when experienced striker Nicky Maynard struck again for the home side to make it 3-0 and all but over for the away side.

H/T: 3-0

Second Half:

The second-half got underway with no changes from either side it was a change from the first half as the away side went on the offence and has a few chances to get themselves back into the game but with no prevail. The Dons came back with a number of their own chances in the second half but the Bury keeper was equal to every shot! The Shakers appeared to become more attacking in the second half and tried their very best to break down the Dons defence but with no luck...it was to remain 3-0 and Bury are out of both Cup competitions now!

F/T:3-0

2238.gif Bury 6-0 Burton  Image result for burton albion logo

Gigg Lane(11,840)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers: Kinglsey(2,52), Iheanacho(28), Harrison(34,84), Rashford(73)

First Half:

It was Bury who had the kick-off at a full-house here at Gigg Lane after a Monday night defeat in the cup at the hands of Championship club MK Dons. The fans were still very optimistic after a 6-0 away victory at Wigan in their last league fixture. The Shakers got off to a flying start too with a goal from Scottish wide-man Stephen Kingsley in just the 2nd minute! What a start from the former Swansea City man! Bury looked well up for the game with it looking like the loss to MK Dons in the cup was well out of their thoughts. They continued to bombard to visitors with shots; it was not too long before the home side struck again in the 28th minute from on-loan Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho the Nigerian scoring his 8th goal in 8 games this season. The home side continued their dominance as Jack Harrison struck in the 34th minute to make it 3-0 to the home side. The score was to remain 3-0 with the home side going into the half-time interval.

H/T: 3-0

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended a dominant display from the home side! It was not long into the second half that the home side struck again and it was a second goal of the game and a brace for Stephen Kingsley, the 22-year-old was in inspiring form for the home side as he made 4-0 and the game was well and truly out of the reach of the visiting side whose team looked wilted. Bury continued to dominate the away side as they took a number of shots on the Burton goal but for a string of saves from Craig Gordon in the Burton net. In the 73rd minute Bury struck for the fifth time in the game to put daylight between the two sides as on-loan striker Marcus Rashford struck his first of the game. At the point the home side were just toying with their opponents ad they played keep ball; before some brilliant build up play led to Bury sixth of the game when Jack Harrison struck again for a brace in the game and give Bury their 12th league goal in just the last two games alone! 6-0 was the way it was to end at Gigg Lane with yet another dominant League display from the Shakers.

 

F/T:6-0

What a performance from our lads tonight against a very strong looking Burton side on paper, but to dominate them the way they had done was quite the achievement as we continue our return to form. The gaffer was delighted after the game and had this to say  , "After a bad result from the young lads against MK Dons in the cup on Monday. Our first team put on show the quality we have here to score 6 in a game and not only that but 12 in just two games!!!  I've never seen such a dominant display over two game by anyside and I'm delighted we came away victorious and to score 6 yet again, was amazing but It easily could have been more! The Burton keeper was probably one of their most outstanding players today which is credit when he conceded 6 and deserves a lot of credit for keeping the score down to just 6. I'm also very pleased that Harrison was able to find the net tonight, this lad has talent and he will only grow like we said when we brought him here from NYCFC and I cannot wait to see him play more and more for us during his progression a great performance all round from the lad and from our team as a whole, just very delighted to be back on a little run of form which is hard in the division with the amount of games we play on a weekly basis. Not only that but also what a game from Kingsley he was a stand-out star on the field for us tonight and he's only getting better as he plays on a weekly basis."

Bury draw away at a strong Peterborough United

MATCH-DAY 13: LEAGUE ONE

Image result for EFL league one logo

 

    Image result for peterborough united logoP'boro Utd 1-1 Bury 2238.gif

ABAX Stadium(15,351)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers:Bostjan Cesar(2), Kelechi Iheanacho(64)

First Half:

Bury came into this fixture with a strong looking Peterborough United side having scored 12 goals in their past 2 games so you could forgive the Bury fans for making the trip with a sense of optimism but that was wiped away very early on at the ABAX Stadium when with just two minutes gone the home side struck to put themselves 1-0 up through Slovakian International Bostjan Cesar. Not the start that the Shakers would have wanted having not conceded in their previous two league fixtures. It was a very end-to-end with both sides having their own chances going but both keepers managed to keep the score as it was, 1-0 at half-time

H/T: 1-0

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended an end-to-end game with Peterborough coming closest to scoring if not for some great saves from Jerome Prior in the Bury net. Peterborough United on paper had the stronger side and at times it was there for everyone to see- Bury however gave up quite the fight throughout having many of chances themselves. It was in the 64th minute when the next goal of the game hit the back of the net, when on-loan Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho found the net again for Bury in yet another game. The Nigerian has been in great form for Bury of late. Despite both sides having their chances the game was to somehow end at only 1-1! Points shared which seemed about right the amount both sides attacked.

F/T:1-1

A strong performance from the lads against a very good Peterborough United team, we got a point and that means we can use that and keep the unbeaten momentum from the past 3 games going strong. We spoke to the gaffer after the game, who had this to say, "We played very well considering how good the opposing teams squad is, we have gone toe to toe with some of the better sides in the division as we look to establish ourselves in this division. At the moment we have our goals and we have an idea of were we'd ideally like to finish come the last game of the season, but that's a long way to go- at the moment we are currently well on track with our expectations if not above what was expected at the start of the season.   "

A brilliant performance from the Bury goalkeeper insured that Bury traveled home with at least a point from a match with a strong Peterborough United side.

Bury sign Norwegian midfielder Tokmac Nguen from Stromsgodset IF in a deal worth £340,000

Image result for tokmac nguen

Tokmac Nguen was spotted at the Peterborough United game(above) and when asked he confirmed that he had agreed a deal to join Bury. The 23-year-old signed a three-year-deal from Stromgodset IF in Norway for a fee thought to be worth £340,000. The deal was made up of a small amount of cash and veteran midfielder Neil Danns who was after a new challenge. We asked the gaffer on the situation, "We spoke with Danns and he was eager to leave after feeling he'd done everything he could in English football at the age of 33-years-old he wasn't getting any younger and perhaps a move abroad would be best suited for him. So we sought after a deal that would see him depart and Stromsgodset IF came calling and when we knew they had interest we made it clear Nguen was of interest to us. So the deal was struck and both players have since agreed deals with each club and Nguen will be here first thing Tuesday morning to report to training."

Bury smash a strong Port Vale side 5-0, as on-loan United striker Rashford bags a hat-trick!

MATCH-DAY 14: LEAGUE ONE

Image result for EFL league one logo

 

    2238.gifBury 5-0 Port Vale  Image result for port vale logo

Gigg Lane(11,840)

K.O: 20:00

Scorers: Stephen Kinglsey(2), Marcus Rashford(19,39,66), Peet Bijen(59)

First Half:

Bury came into this fixture with a very solid looking Port Vale side boasting the likes of David Villa and Antonio Cassano, but being unbeaten in their last 3 league games  you could forgive them for being a tad optimistic ahead of the game. 

It wasn't long into the first half...2 minutes in fact when the home side found themselves ahead in the game through Scotland International Stephen Kingsley, the 22-year-old struck a beautiful shot into the top corner past former Porto keeper Helton in the Vale net... what a start from the Shakers. It wasn't too long after that and a dominant spell saw the home side reduced to 10-men when on-loan Southampton full-back Matt Targett received a striaght red-card for a professional foul. Was this to be the downfall in the game for Bury? If it was no-one told them as two minutes later on-loan striker Marcus Rashford grabbed himself a delightful goal! What a start to a game 2 goals and one red card in under 20 minutes! A very lively start at the sold-out Gigg Lane. For the next 15 minutes it was a very end-to-end fixture with both sides having their own chances to score. Not long before the break 10-man Bury found the net yet again to make it 3-0 with Marcus Rashford bagging himself a brace in the first half. 

What a half of football! 3 goals and 1 red card all for the same team....

H/T: 3-0

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended a great display from the home side Bury; they could of been 4 or 5 up before even the 50th minute! It was just before the hour mark when the home side found the net yet again this time Dutch center-back and former FC Twente man Peet Bijen rose above the Vale defenders to head in his sides 4th of the game...not bad for a team with only 10 men on the field. What a performance so far from the Shakers against a very strong Port Vale. Bury were to round of the scoring when loanee Marcus Rashford completed his hat-trick in the 66th minute! What a game from Bury

F/T:5-0

A strong performance from the lads against a very good Port Vale, we got all three points and that means we can use that and keep the unbeaten momentum from the past 4 games now and keep it going strong. We spoke to the gaffer after the game, who had this to say, "We played very well considering how good the opposing teams squad is, as I've already said i'm so pleased that we have gone toe to toe with some of the better sides in the division as we look to establish ourselves in this division. Its a very tough league and a very packed schedule and we may on paper not have the strongest team in the division but we are putting up a big fight and pulling our own! We must keep the momentum going for our game on Saturday against Chesterfield .   "

K.O: 20:00

Scorers:Marcus Rashford(10)

First Half:

Bury came into this fixture being four games unbeaten having won 5-0 last time out- the Shakers found themselves just below the play-off spots heading into this fixture against a side boasting some big names such as Luis Fabiano, Alberto Zapater among others in their ranks. Bury were without suspended on-loan Southampton left-back Matt Targett. A big loss but with a re-shuffle Stephen Kingsley found himself at left-back whilst on-loan Manchester City attacker Kelechi Iheanacho played wide left in the Bury midfield. Chesterfield got the game under way and had a dominant spell in the first 5 minutes and could have taken an early lead through former Brazil and Sevilla star ~Luis Fabiano before a cracking save from Bury keeper Jerome Prior. The home side looked the stronger of the two sides in the opening stages, so it was to a surprise of many in the stadium when the visitors put themselves ahead on the 10 minute mark when on-loan Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford  scored his 3rd goal in his past 2 games. The home side continued to break down the Bury defence but for a string of good saves from the Bury keeper it could have been a very different scoreline going into the first half interval, but it was to remain 0-1.

H/T: 0-1

Second Half:

The second-half started just as the first half ended a very dominant looking Chesterfield side having attempt after attempt but with not prevail as the solid French youngster Jerome Prior in the Bury goal made save after save. You could see the frustrations coming out of the Chesterfield bench- Was they going to score today or is it one of those games? It seemed that way when yet another chance went begging from the home side. 

It wasn't that Bury did not have their chances it is just that the home side had so much more without any luck! Bury got lucky this time with a 0-1 victory moving them within a point of the play-off places.

F/T:0-1

A lucky game from the lads against a very amazing Chesterfield, we got all three points and that means we can use that and keep the unbeaten momentum from the past 5 games now and keep it going strong as we eye a place in the illustrious play-off places. We spoke to the gaffer after the game, who had this to say, "We got very lucky considering how good the opposing teams squad was today and how many chances they had, as I've already said i'm so pleased that we have such a small amount of difference in our league position to some of the big boys in the division! Before the season we could only of dreamed of making this kind of start to the season.  We now go again with an eye on another big side in Bradford City this Wednesday. "
