Disappointed with my performance

22 September 2013

Man of the Match Danny Mayor talks about his disappointment at his performance and where he sees Bury at the end of the season.

'We are disappointed after that performance; we went into the game wanting to win. We wanted to come back home after the last two defeats and show the fans how good we are.


We were poor in the first-half then in the second-half we managed to get on top but we didn't take our chances. The first goal was crucial. They managed to bag the first goal then after that their confidence grew and they started to dominate. The goal was a wonder strike, it was a great goal. If their goal wouldn't have gone in we'd have won the game easy, it could have been 3 or 4 nil to us. We should have responded better after the goal but we allowed our heads to go down.


Southend did well to see out the game. Whenever they got chance to play the ball they played it. We never really won the ball within their half, when we did win the ball we were always starting from the back in our own half. I think that a point was a fair result.


In regards to my own performance today I beat my man 3 or 4 times but then I just misplaced my final ball. It's so disappointing because I'd done the hard bit I had beat my man I just needed to put a good ball into the box. On another day I could play 3 or 4 quality balls into the box and we might score from all of them – today was just one of those days.


It wasn't our best game today against Southend and we are disappointed but we haven't come away with a defeat we are happy we salvaged a point. We will build on today's performance ready for next week against Dagenham & Redbridge. Hopefully we'll start to get up the table to where we think we should be.


Come Christmas and the end of the season I believe we'll be up there in the league, we have a good enough squad to be up there. If we aren't then we should all take a look at ourselves because we'll have done something wrong.'
