Bury Town manager Ben Chenery was delighted that his side made progress in the FA Trophy with a 3-1 win at Lincoln United in the Extra Preliminary Round on Saturday.
The Blues preparation for the game was not ideal with the team coach arriving just 50 minutes before kick off, but this did not seem to affect the side who went ahead in the 3rd minute.
Ben had to say "The preparations were not ideal but the team made the best of it and got off to the best possible start. The confidence is sky high at the moment and when we took the lead after 3 minutes I knew that it would set the tone for the afternoon"
"We started on the front foot and the second goal came before the half hour mark, which was another well worked goal. In Cemal and Ollie, we have two strikers on form and scoring regularly. We are taking our chances when they come along and that takes the pressure off the team"
"Credit to Lincoln who came back at us, although we were a little unfortunate with their goal which took a big deflection and looped over Daniel Barden. We changed the formation at half time and rather than sit back and try and defend the one goal lead, we pressed them on the front foot and I though we were excellent in the second half"
"We put them under pressure and made it difficult for them to create any real chances. We had a goal unfairly disallowed when their 'keeper spilled the ball which was more down to the wet conditions then any foul committed, but we made the game safe through Jarid Robson with 9 minutes left, and saw the game out very well"
"I was very proud of the players, it was a long journey for them against unfamiliar opposition who we have never played before, but they all did their jobs and the supporters who traveled the long distance were rewarded with a good performance and result"
"We now have a week to prepare for a tough game against Tilbury next weekend. They are always difficult opponents for us, but it will be back to protection our unbeaten League record next week and keeping in touch at the top of the table"
