Bury boss Flitcroft issues FA Cup warning: 'We score goals from everywhere'

Bury boss Flitcroft issues FA Cup warning: 'We score goals from everywhere'

| By Ross Kelsall

Bury manager David Flitcroft says Conference South side Hemel Hempstead Town need to find a way of stopping his ‘whole team’ to cause a FA Cup upset on Saturday .

The League Two promotion chasers have scored in 10 of their last 11 matches in all competitions, following last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Cambridge United.

Flitcroft feels that the arrivals of proven strikers last summer have made a difference, but it is important that the forwards are not too heavily relied upon.

“There is a lot of creation in our team and I’m sure the Hemel manager will look to come up with a game plan to be competitive against us,” he said.

“You’ve got to somehow come up with a game plan to stop the whole team – we get goals from everywhere.

“We signed good strikers but it was really important that we built a team on everyone scoring goals - we’re looking forward to the encounter.”

The Shakers come into the FA Cup First Round game in fine home form on the back of eight straight victories and they will be hoping to maintain that run.

They face a Hemel side that are 60 places below Bury and are struggling in the Conference South this season but did impressively overcome Nuneaton Town in the last Qualifying Round.

Defender Nathan Cameron feels that the JD Stadium holds a fear-factor for visiting sides now and that the side feel they can always create chances.

“Teams are coming here fearing us now – we’ve turned this place into a bit of a fortress at the minute,” he said.

 “We try to get early goals and allow teams to come at us because we know we can find little gaps and holes to play through – we can always create chances.”

Midfield star Andy Tutte is expecting a tough test from the reigning Southern League Premier Champions and has stressed the importance of maintaining focus.

“They’re going to come and fight, they’ve got nothing to lose but if we stay professional and work hard we should be ok,” he said.
