Looking forward to Rochdale

Brian Jensen reflects on Tuesdays game and looks forward to Saturday

Brian Jensen 'the Beast' talks about his debut game for the Shakers against Port Vale and when he almost scored the first goal of his career.



'I was close to scoring that final goal for the equaliser. I would have got the ball if the Port Vale defender hadn't have flicked the ball out just in front of me.


I was prepared for the game to go to penalties. I haven't lost a penalty shootout yet. Their goal was an unfortunate clearance that ricocheted. I thought that Pope who scored the goal was going to go around me because I had tried to close him down, but unfortunately he chipped it over me – it was a great finish, fair play to him. From the amount of chances that we created we should have won the game.


In the 5-6 weeks that I have been training at the club I have seen a big improvement with the team and if we continue as we are the goals will come.  I am happy to be at Bury where I hope to continue my career. When I originally came here a few weeks ago I thought that I would be ready to play after 4 weeks but I wasn't. I needed another 4 weeks to get back to full fitness. After 4 weeks of working hard and putting in extra work I could see an improvement.


In regards to me signing the deal, the Gaffer had approached me and said that I was looking fit, I'd been working hard, and asked me would I be happy to sign – I couldn't turn it down. The Gaffer has been really good to me over the summer, he's kept his word.


I really like the whole set up at Bury, the team and everyone around it are brilliant.   Now I'm looking forward to the derby against Rochdale on Saturday as those are the type of games that you play football for.
