Bury manager, David Flitcroft, feels his side now have the momentum to carry their brilliant run on.
The feeling around the club is excellent after last week’s 2-1 comeback win over Northampton United and manager, David Flitcroft, feels that result was one of the best moments in his career.
Flitcroft feels that game will give the team momentum to carry on the brilliant run they are on which has seen them pick up thirteen points out of fifteen in the past five games.
However, he feels that is now behind them and they now have to focus on the challenge Southend United will bring them on Saturday.
Speaking ahead of the match, David Flitcroft said: “It’s going to be a fantastic game, and these are the games they want to play in, last weekend was another incredible moment certainly in my career.
“Coming back from one – nil down was a defining momentum shift that the lads really believed in after coming back from adversity.
“We’ve had some brilliant experiences this season that I’m sure will help to gain a positive result on Saturday.
“I don’t want to add to the pressure by calling Saturday’s game a defining moment, but we are really focusing on how we can be competitive against Southend.
“That’s what we have focused on all week, looking at where there weaknesses and strengths are, but we’ve really been hitting home about what we’re good at which has helped the run we’ve been on.”
Flitcroft feels that last week’s win showed everyone the progress the club have made in a year and he knows that this run can carry on.
He has also credited the purpose being at a fantastic training facility like Carrington gives you to want to improve.
He explained: “The game last week showed the progress we’ve made. It was a game that last season we would have potentially lost.
“However, we showed fight and you could see the shift in momentum after Joe Riley got sent off because it galvanised the spirit in a team of players that really believe we are doing the right things.
“Obviously working from Carrington every day makes that belief deepen, because it gives you a real purpose in everything you do, and I’m seeing that out on the pitch too.
“The players should take massive credit for the run we are on. There has been a lot of expectation on them, but they are the ones that crossed the white line and pulled the punches in most of the games.”
