We didn't get what we deserved - Ben

By Chris Ward

Missed chances cost the Blues in New Year's local derby

Bury Town manager Ben Chenery felt his side did not get what their performance deserved in the 2-3 home defeat to AFC Sudbury on New Years Day.

Bury were the better side for the majority of the 90 minutes, but a series of missed chances were punished by Sudbury who went 3 goals ahead before Bury struck twice late on, but the Blues could not force an equaliser in injury time.

Ben said "I felt that we deserved far more than we got, but we only have ourselves to blame as we did not take the chances in front of goal that we created.

"We've hit the bar twice, and the post, plus a few other efforts that you would expect us to score, but it just wasn't our day today"

"I can't fault the players effort and they were as disappointed as anyone in the changing room after the game. They knew they deserved more, but it was a harsh lesson for us"

"Sudbury hit us on the break a couple of times to score and that deflated us but we kept going, and on another day we would have got a result, we were excellent in the first half and I couldn't believe we were behind at half time"

"If we play with that desire for the rest of the season we will be there or there abouts. It was fantastic to see a crowd of over 700 and I thank everyone for their support, it shows what potential we have at this club. We have a difficult game at Grays at the weekend and it is important that we bounce back from the defeat with a positive result"
