Shak­ers look­ing to push into play-off po­si­tions

Manchester Evening News - - UNITED - By DAVE CROWTHER-GREEN

BURY will have the chance to move into the Sky Bet League Two au­to­matic pro­mo­tion places should they beat Ex­eter City at Gigg Lane to­day.

Man­ager Ryan Lowe, who yesterday was named Man­ager of the Month for Novem­ber, made nine changes for the mid­week Check­a­trade Tro­phy trip to Mans­field, with for­ward Do­minic Telford get­ting the only goal of the game.

To­day’s op­po­nents sit sev­enth in the ta­ble, and are in their first sea­son un­der new man­ager Matt Taylor, af­ter tak­ing over from Paul Tis­dale – who was with The Gre­cians for 12 years.

But de­spite sit­ting just two places be­low Bury, Taylor’s side will be look­ing to pick up three points for the first time in eight league games, where they most re­cently lost 1-0 at home to bot­tom club Mac­cles­field.

The Shak­ers will also be look­ing to carry on their im­pres­sive goalscor­ing form, af­ter scor­ing 22 across their six matches in all com­pe­ti­tions last month.

As well as Lowe’s award, mid­fielder Jay O’Shea won the Player of the Month award for League Two hav­ing scored four goals and pro­vid­ing two as­sists.

“I think con­fi­dence and the way the team is play­ing is what has al­lowed me to get so many op­por­tu­ni­ties in front of goal, and the way the team’s been per­form­ing has al­lowed me to chip in with a few my­self,” he said.
