Danny Pugh believes the side are still showing confidence from their promotion last season.
On their run to promotion last season the Shakers notched up an outstanding run of results that saw the side pick up 12 clean sheets in four months and stay unbeaten away from home in their last 9 games.
Danny was not part of the run up to promotion, but having come into the camp through the summer, he could feel that there was a lot of confidence throughout the team.
That confidence helped the side start the season off tremendously having only lost 3 games in the League so far this season and in the process adding to the amount of away games the team had gone unbeaten, taking it to 17 games.
Although that run has now ended, the versatile midfielder believes that the side have still got confidence flowing through the ranks due to that run and the form they started with this season.
Speaking ahead of Saturday’s match against Blackpool, Danny Pugh said: “I think after getting promoted last season that form has carried on into this campaign. The side are full of confidence, and I don’t think we have looked out of place in any game we’ve played so far this season even though we are in a new League.
“We know we can compete at this level and against anyone we come up against. I think that’s a positive thing to look at for the rest of the season.”
The Shakers will now look to start a good run off form off again starting with the visit of recently relegated side Blackpool to Gigg Lane on Saturday.
Danny Pugh believes that Bury will go into the game confident that they can get something out of the game against a Blackpool side that have had troubles off the field, but are now looking one of the form sides of the League on the pitch.
He explained: “There is no easy game in this League, Blackpool have had a difficult twelve months, or even longer, but they seem to have started turning that around which means it is going to be a tough game.
They have got an experienced manager who has been in the game a long time, they have some good players and it is going to be a tough test, but I think every team we play is a tough game so we’ll look forward to the challenge and try to get the win.”
