The caretaker manager of Bury FC, Ronnie Jepson, has said that his team has been paying the price of individual mistakes.
Bury hasn’t won a single home game in the last 3 months. They had a chance to do that in their previous match against AFC Wimbledon as they were ahead by 1-0 in that game with just a few minutes to go. But, a mistake by the defender Nathan Cameron allowed Wimbledon to equalize the scores. That leveller left Jepson horribly frustrated.
According to Jepson, that game against Wimbledon was well and truly in the bag and it’s only because of the mistake committed by an individual, his team couldn’t win that game.
Now, the Shakers’ next opponent will be Hartlepool United which is an in form side at the moment. They are currently 10 positions higher than Bury in the League Two points table.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Jepson said, “I reckon if we play as well as we can, we would easily get better of the sides like Wimbledon. No offence to them. They have played well recently, but, we have had sufficient quality to defeat them.”
“It’s just that we need to cut down the no. of individual errors. If we manage to do that, we will win games”
“We were desperate for a win against Wimbledon. We need to grab 3 points on more occasions than not. One point is not going to do it for us.”
Jepson had been appointed as the caretaker manager of Bury after the sacking of Kevin Blackwell one and half months back. He has guided Bury to just one win under his guidance so far. That one victory had come against Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on 26th of October.
