Bury are flying in League Two at the moment, Ryan Lowe has got the Shakers ticking and scoring for fun. Having scored four goals plus for four of the six November matches – Scoring two and three in the other games.
Sitting in fifth place, a playoff place should we add. Everything is looking rosy at the Energy Check Stadium.
After an uncomfortable start following last seasons relegation from League One, September came around and things have clicked into gear for Lowe’s men. Nicky Maynard is firing them in with his eight goals and two assists so far, followed by Moore (6 Goals), O’Shea (6 Goals) and Danny Mayor with his five goals and five assists providing the much-needed help a team needs in a race for promotion.
Is this early form enough to let the loyal Bury fans dream of promotion come to the end of the season, or is it too early for that type of talk with us not even reaching the halfway point of the campaign yet?
Lowe seems to have already gained that much-needed momentum. His 3-5-2 formation is working, and he has players on his hands with the quality of standards higher than the fourth tier of English Football.
The Shakers have slowly started to grease the wheel, after taking them a few games to come to terms with life in a lower division.
Furthermore, Bury may be ten points behind leaders at the moment MK Dons, but they are just two points behind third-placed Colchester, who they have already beat 2-1 earlier in the season.
If I was a betting man, my money would be on the Shakers to be playing League One football next season already. They look white hot, however, December will be a make or break month as they go head to head with teams in and around them.
Should they go into January still within the top seven places, Bury fans would be right to think thier dream is going to be a reality…
