If Bury’s fellow League Two opponents were taking their goal scoring feats lightly, the 4-0 win over Stevenage would have made the doubters think again.
Following on from the 5-0 win over Dover in the FA Cup and the 3-1 win against Fleetwood in the Checkatrade Trophy, the dedicated fans who went to all three competitions were witness to a 12 goal extravaganza across 7 days of football.
The Stevenage triumph showed just why Bury are a contender for a play-off spot and maybe even automatic promotion. The Shakers lie just three points off MK Dons who occupy the final automatic promotion spot and just one point behind Tranmere Rovers in 6th.
It’s been a week full of goals and talking points, let’s take a look at what’s hot at Gigg Lane…
Quantity and Quality
In most cases of life, quality is always a winner over the quantity of a substance. yet like with most cases football offers the exception. The Shakers are scoring some cracking goals at present, something that Bobby Charlton would have been proud of.
Eoghan O’Connell’s goal at the weekend was as good as any you’ll see all weekend, a right foot curler into the top right-hand corner to round off a perfect afternoon. The other few weren’t bad either. It’s goals galore at present. Macclesfield, Notts County, Dover and Grimsby were already on an ever-growing list of teams to be toppled by Lowe’s men before Stevenage joined on Saturday,
Danny Mayor, a bit too good
Danny Mayor’s performances and stats are as good as any. Mayor may be shy off the pitch, not that Bury will mind as he certainly expresses himself on it.
Another pearling goal at the weekend adds to an ever growing collection. Having found himself struggling for form over the past year or so, the twenty-eight year old is making up for lost time at present.
Showing form that mirrors the likes of Eden Hazard and David Silva in the Premier League, it’s time Mayor starts getting the outward credit that matches those above.
