What entertainment at Gigg Lane this season. It stems from Lowe, who refused to grind out results at home to promotion rivals MK Dons and Lincoln. Instead, the games ended 4-3 and 3-3, respectively, as Bury collected 13 points from five games.
Lowe said: “It’s nice to be recognised for the work we’re doing. A lot of credit has to go to my staff and my players because without them it wouldn’t be possible.
“It shows that the work we’re doing, the style of football we’re playing is getting recognised for the right reasons. We’re scoring goals and doing ever so well, so long may that continue.
“The hard work gets harder now, the games are coming thick and fast and we’re nearly seeing the light at the end of the tunnel because there’s only 14 games after Saturday left, but we’re relishing it.”
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “If there was an end of season award for most entertaining side in League Two, Ryan Lowe’s Bury would probably have it already wrapped up.
“Unleashing the attacking talent at his disposal, the score lines in the month tell their own story: 3-1, 4-3, 1-2, 3-3. The League Two top scorers show no signs of the goals drying up and their promotion challenge is on track.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “Ryan Lowe guided his Bury side to five wins and a draw in January to see his team progress to third place in the table. The Shakers are now 13/2 for the title but a more realistic target will be promotion straight back to League One. They are currently as are as short as 4/9 for promotion.”
