Ryan Lowe is no stranger to the highs and lows of recent times at Bury, both as a player and a manager he has experienced promotion and relegation at Gigg Lane.
You could, therefore, forgive him for not getting carried away with Bury’s impressive results, especially those on home soil.
Despite implementing a fresh attacking style of football to this new and improved squad, Lowe choosing to keep his head down and focused at this present moment.
Speaking after Saturday’s 5-0 thumping of Dover, Bury’s caretaker turned full-time manager shows no sign of dreaming ahead, only choosing to focus on the next game in waiting, let alone promotion success or FA Cup runs.
‘If we keep playing like that I will be quite happy’ said Lowe in the aftermath of last Saturday’s encounter. ‘We don’t take any team lightly and we only need to worry about ourselves’. He did add however he would like a ‘big boy’ in the third round, should his side get there.
It’s fair to say that Lowe has a good quantity and quality of attacking talent in his side. Star striker Nicky Maynard wasn’t able to find the net on Saturday, yet his fellow colleague Bryon Moore was able to score a brace.
Young gun Dom Telford and Danny Mayor scored arguably the best solo goals of the first round.
Despite looking a bit shaky at the back at times during the season, the feeling is the more offensive players should cancel out any errors that are made at the other end of the pitch.
The past two years have been tough at times for Bury, therefore Lowe is probably right for not getting too carried away, so the eye-catching football should be appreciated even if not admitted out loud by Lowe.
