Bury’s players will contribute financially for the away trip to Portsmouth on Saturday in a bid to maintain their promotion push, according to manager David Flitcroft.
Bury manager David Flitcroft is heeding the advice of Manchester United legend Gary Neville to take the season “one game at a time” in search of promotion.
Bury are seven points behind second-placed Wycombe with a game in hand as they prepare to take on Cambridge and Morecambe over Easter.
With Bury now four points behind the top three in the automatic race, Flitcroft insists League Two’s in-form side must concentrate on their own performances as they welcome Southend United to the JD Stadium.
Although Adam El-Abd’s last minute winner sealed a comeback for 10-man Bury against Northampton, Flitcroft bemoaned the standard of the surface in a week when Shakers chairman Stewart Day reiterated their ambition for Championship football.
Bury kept their fifth clean sheet in six games away at York City midweek, a run that has coincided with them collecting 15 of a possible 18 points.
Tom Soares’ early header gave the Shakers victory against Luton Town, a result that helped Flitcroft’s charges move level on points with the Hatters as they extended their winning streak to four.
Bury boss Flitcroft says Bury now sell on their own terms and only if the price is right for the player and the club as transfer deadline draws near.
Daniel Nardiello scored twice, either side of a Steven Rigg strike, and later missed a penalty as the Shakers moved back into the playoff places.
Bury manager David Flitcroft has urged the Premier League to support the professionalisation of referees in the Football League after criticising the standard of officiating.
League Two Bury have prided themselves on developing young English talent and remain in the promotion hunt, sitting 13 points behind leaders and Saturday’s opponents Wycombe, despite lacking their own training facilities.
