‘Hard to beat’: Bury boss Kevin Blackwell believes first win on horizon as Shakers travel to Yeovil Town

By Mark Shales

Bury manager Kevin Blackwell believes his club are on the brink of their first win of the season, ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Yeovil Town.

The Shakers had made a terrible start to the season with Blackwell levelling criticism at the club’s players.

Blackwell admitted he was thankful to former boss Neil Warnock for loaning him Dominic Poleon and Zac Thompson from Leeds United, feels the team are ready to turn a corner.

“We’re starting to become hard to beat,” said Blackwell

“I’ve got every confidence we can stay in this division. A lot of people have come here, in our division and above, and said that that looked like a top five team.

“I can’t thank Neil Warnock enough.

“The two young lads from Leeds were absolutely out on their feet after that – I’m really pleased with both of them.”

Bury will be without striker Mark Cullen at Huish Park tomorrow, who has been recalled by Hull after his second stint at Gigg Lane.

But Blackwell has hinted his interest in signing MK Dons striker – and former Shakers favourite – Ryan Lowe on loan.

“The situation with Ryan is that he’d be another loan player and it really is a case now of trying to keep all the balls in the air, it’s difficult,” he added.

“If clubs want players to play we have to marry what they can pay and we can afford, so we’ll see.”

Yeovil – currently nine places above Bury – have won only one of their last eight league games and will be hungry for a home victory.
