Kevin Blackwell confident his Bury players will bounce back from Rochdale defeat
BURY’S below-par performance in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Rochdale may have triggered a few home truths from manager Kevin Blackwell.
But the players still have the full backing of the Shakers boss, who is confident they can get something at in-form Fleetwood Town on Saturday.
“Everybody knows the Fleetwood chairman has tried to out-spend the rest of the division,” said Blackwell.
“He has paid £300,000 for Kidderminster’s top scorer (Jamile Matt), got (Ryan) Cresswell from Southend for £100,000, and taken our best player and captain Steven Schumacher.
"So, clearly, we are expecting a tough game, but I am confident this set of players are more than a match for any side in this division.”
Blackwell’s confidence does come with a warning, however, that his young side will have their ups and downs.
“Everyone needs to be aware that many of our attacking players – like Craig Jones, Anton Forrester, Marlon Jackson and Danny Mayor – are still lacking in experience.”
Goalkeeper Rob Lainton is waiting on the results of a scan on his injured shoulder, with initial concerns he could be out for up to six weeks with a hairline fracture.
Tope Obadeyi could also miss the Fleetwood match with a groin injury.
