Pressley: Saturday is a great opportunity to pick ourselves up

31 December 2015

Town will look to respond to Monday's defeat to Wigan

Steven Pressley wants his side to pick themselves up ahead of this weekend’s game against the Shakers at Highbury.

The Cod Army fell to a 3-1 defeat to Wigan Athletic on Monday afternoon, but the boss admits he saw encouraging signs in the second half.

Bury will be hoping to respond themselves having lost narrowly away to Port Vale on the same day, as Sam Kelly’s goal gave the Staffordshire side all three points.

Pressley said: “Saturday presents a fantastic opportunity to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves down and look forward to another game.

“We really enjoy playing at Highbury Stadium and we will be looking to beat Bury this weekend.

“Bury have recruited very well, they are a very progressive club. Their owner has invested heavily in the squad and they have been picking up some very good results.

“There is not an easy game in League One. It is a game that I have got no doubt that if our players keep applying themselves in the manner that they are doing so, we will have a real chance of winning the game.

“We will be discussing the players currently on loan at the club over the coming days. Gretar, the chairman and myself will all sit down.

“It is a very important time for the Club, not only in the short term but the long term as well.  The decisions we make in January have to be right because players can end up staying with the Club for several years.

“We will be working tirelessly to ensure we make the correct decisions. Hopefully there will be some positive news.

“We hope to have David Henen back for this weekend’s game. He had a fitness test on Monday and we hoped he would get through that but he didn’t manage to do so.

“I am confident he will be ready for this weekend. He picked up a knock on his ankle at Shrewsbury Town last weekend.”
