Bury Town boss Ben Chenery hopes Remi Garrett’s X-factor can give the Blues confidence to break their scoring duck away from home this season.
The former Ipswich Wanderers striker netted twice in the Ram Meadow-based outfit’s 2-1 triumph over Billericay Town on Tuesday — the second a chart-topping hit — ahead of trips to Met Police tomorrow (3pm) and Grays Athletic on Wednesday (7.45pm).
And Chenery is looking to the rest of his squad to follow Garrett’s lead into the spotlight and take centre stage in front of goal.
“I think it’s just confidence — Remi scored two on Tuesday and that will give us confidence,” said the Blues’ boss. “Someone’s got to start the ball rolling.
“It’s like karaoke night — no-one wants to sing, but the moment that first person gets up they all sing.”
Chenery has been making use of the loan market by moving for Ipswich Town midfielder Jack Willbye for a month this week and also hopes to take in striker Jason Williams from Southend United on a similar deal.
Reflecting on Willbye’s debut on Tuesday, Chenery said: “He made some great movements and got in some great areas. He’s always looking to get on the ball, but tired because he’s been playing development football.
“This is different — it’s high tempo and everyone’s at it — but he will get stronger.”
Seb Dunbar (hamstring) will miss both fixtures, but Justin Miller (Achilles) is set to return in place of the suspended Nathan Clarke.
