A little bit of luck is what Bury need at the moment according to the manager Kevin Blackwell, who saw his team extend their winless run the nine matches after the 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury Town during the weekend. Bury were coming into the match with a real chance of making a push towards safety. Even though their last win might have coming the month of November, there have been a lot of draws along the way that have helped the club pick up points on a consistent basis. As the 2-1 win over Scunthorpe, the team has managed five draws in all competitions.

However, the manager Kevin Blackwell was extremely disappointed that his team were unable to take all three points in the match against Shrewsbury Town. Only a few weeks ago, they managed a 2-2 draw with Shrewsbury at home. Despite being an away match, Bury created a lot of opportunities in the match. However, they were unlucky number of occasions, which led to yet more dropped points for the team. Blackwell admitted after the match that he cannot ask more from his players, but he is hoping that luck will certainly turn to their side in the next few matches.

“There was nothing wrong with our performance today. I thought we looked strong, solid and comfortable. There has been an inquest in the changing rooms afterwards because I want to know who’s done what wrong because I can’t see it myself. Other teams it seems to hit someone and go in, us it hits someone and comes out – we could really use a lucky break. You can’t ask any more from the lads away from home,” said Blackwell. The team will be having the home match against Doncaster Rovers in the next weekend. Bury have improved from their rock bottom position earlier in the season.
