Gaffer's Bury preview

11 September 2015

​Nigel Adkins expects Bury to come to Bramall Lane full of confidence for Saturday's Sky Bet League One clash.

The Shakers gained their first win of the season at Walsall last week​, but David Flitcroft's side have only lost once in the league this term and Adkins believes they will be difficult opposition.

Looking ahead to the weekend's clash, the Gaffer remarked: "David has done an excellent job at Gigg Lane and they will be, as they have already proved this season, a tough team to beat.

"They won promotion last season and they have recruited well in the summer to give it a good go this season and I am sure they will.

"When a team wins promotion they have that belief and momentum and we will have to be at our best, as we was at Swindon, to keep our winning run going."

Adkins also thinks patience could be key in the fixture, adding "At Swindon, we were in control of the game but didn't take the lead until the 70th minute, whilst in our last home game against Blackpool, we struggled to break them down before getting the all-important first goal from a set-piece.

"I will reiterate, there will be no easy games in this relentless division."
