Fully-fit Blues ready for a tough test against leaders

BACK IN ACTION: Joe Benjamin
BACK IN ACTION: Joe Benjamin

Bury Town manager Ben Chenery will have a fully-fit squad to choose from for the first time this season when Ryman League Premier Division leaders Maidstone United visit Ram Meadow on Tuesday (7.45pm).

The Blues are set to welcome back cousins Joe and Chris Benjamin from visiting their sick grandmother in Trinidad, while recent signing James Paterson (personal engagement) and youngster Tevan Allen (Suffolk Under-18s 
duty) could also return to the squad.

Rock-bottom Bury’s four-game unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Kingstonian on Saturday, but Chenery’s belief in his players has not wavered.

“We were never going to remain unbeaten, but now we have to go on another run,” he said. “That defeat will give us a kick up the backside.”

With no game tomorrow, the Blues’ players are set for an extra training session instead and Chenery wants to make sure they are in the 
right mind-set to face Maidstone.

“Our attitude has to be to fight for every ball and scrap for things,” he said. “It will be a tough game because they are a good side, but we won’t hold any fear. We’ll have to improve a lot from the last home game though.”
