We don’t fear anyone

18 August 2013

Danny Mayor looks at the Accrington win and hopes for more results in his season long loan.

After signing on loan for the Season, Danny Mayor has recovered from illness to play 45 minutes for the Shakers in the 3-0 win against Accrington Stanley, following the game Danny spoke to Shakers Player to give us his reaction to the side’s first win of the season.

‘That was a good three points.  We’ve shown glimpses in the games against Chesterfield and Oxford of what we can do.  We all know how we can play even though I don’t think we were at our best on Saturday, but three points was the main aim of the game.

I’ve been ill for a week so haven’t really been at the club, but I came back in on Monday and am working hard to get my fitness back up.  The illness has knocked me backwards slightly but now it’s just a case of getting fit again, but it was good to get 45 minutes in and get on the field. 

I’m shattered now but every player will tell you that once you get the three points on a Saturday it just makes it a better week, so I can go and enjoy this now.  Even though I came on and got involved, I’m not happy with my own performance.  I gave the ball away too much and my end product wasn’t good enough, but I do put a lot of pressure on myself and I do expect a lot of myself.  The whole team does.

We’ve not had the best of starts, but we have shown glimpses of what we can achieve.  With so many new players here it is going to take time for us all to gel, but once we have done that then we will be right up there.

It’s a marathon not a sprint and as long as we give ourselves the chance at the end of the season, then that’s the main thing.  As an attacking player, the fact that we scored three goals is more pleasing than keeping the clean sheet.  I’m sure if you asked a defender he would be happy with the clean sheet.

It showed the team spirit when I was fouled at the end of the game, and Adam Lockwood came flying in at the lad and the referee.  We’ve got a great team spirit here and that will bode well for us for the rest of the season.

Even though this is a completely new team, I’d be disappointed if we weren’t right up there pushing for promotion; it’s a good club and a very well-run club.  I came here to be right up there.  I’m 22 now and have played league one football with Preston two years ago, I am here to play games and win games.

The good thing is that this is a long loan.  I had a month’s loan last season at Southend.  It takes time to settle into a new club and with a month’s loan you don’t see the best out of a player, but here I am here for the season.  I might not start every game, and I might come off the bench a few times but once I get into my rhythm then I hope to start games, then Bury will see the best of me.

It’s great to watch Craig Jones, he can cross for fun and he has a great ball into the box.  He will bring a lot out of us this season with the balls that he puts in there; hopefully he can put some towards me.

Its Burton next week and they got a great result at Fleetwood on Saturday. Fleetwood have started well and for Burton to go 3-0 up at Fleetwood is good going, but we go into Saturday’s game after getting three good points from Accrington.  We will go there full of confidence and we do expect to win games.  We don’t fear anyone.”
