Blackwell eyes room for improvement

1 September 2013

Bury boss Kevin Blackwell wants even more goals from his side despite beating Cheltenham 4-1 at Gigg Lane.

Blackwell was delighted with his side's display but believes a lack of precision in the final third prevented them from adding to their tally.

He said: "We played some good stuff and looked as though we could score at will but then we got a bit sloppy. I think we should have scored five or six.

"It was outstanding and the fans are loving it. We know we're at the start of this and there are going to be some dips, but we're starting to find consistency in our performances.

"We want to make Bury a fortress and when people come here they know they are going to go back on that bus with nothing.

"If we win our home games and draw away, we're going to get promoted. It's as simple as that."

Cheltenham boss Mark Yates was left to reflect grimly on his own side's performance.

"It wasn't good enough," said Yates. "We made a good start and looked alright but then conceded three goals in eight minutes so it wasn't good enough.

"We need to go back to the drawing board and start again. We need to find our identity because we're getting beaten at both ends of the pitch and conceding too many goals.

"They were a threat and looked a strong outfit but the goals were too easy and it could've been more."
