The fortunes of Bury FC have turned around a great deal in the last couple of weeks. They were right in the bottom quarter of the League Two table before taking on Northampton the previous weekend and now they are at no. 7 with an outside chance of making it to the playoffs. This has been nothing less than a magical turnaround.
The no. of games that Bury still has to play in the ongoing season is 5. If they manage to win all those and secure 15 points, they might end up in the play offs and the manager David Flitcroft is not taking it as an impossible task. He believes that the kind of rhythm his boys have shown in the recent past, they are capable of doing that.
Chatting with the reporters after his team’s win against Exeter City yesterday, the Shakers’ boss said, “The performance of the boys for most parts of the first half was just amazing. They might have lost a bit of intensity in the last 5 minutes, but, that’s alright. It’s not possible to maintain the same kind of intensity for the entire half.”
“We have a handful of matches left and it would be really nice to win one and all. If you want to be a champion, you’ve got to think positive always.”
In their next match, Bury is going to take on Scunthorpe United which is placed second in the table. If they win that match, it would boost their self belief even more. Flitcroft also acknowledged the importance of that match.
He said, “We are up against Scunthorpe boys now who are having a great run. They would give us no room whatsoever. If we manage to pull that off, we will be in a great state of mind going ahead.”
