Bury Town entertain Wroxham at Ram Meadow this evening, buoyed by a terrific 4-1 win at Soham Town Rangers, in Ryman North, on Boxing Day.

Ben Chenery’s side were clinical and impressive in their victory at Julius Martin Lane and with two home games in the space of four days now upon them, the Blues have a chance to cement themselves in the top-six.

Currently just two places outside the play-off positions in seventh, Bury face Wroxham tonight and then Dereham on Monday afternoon.

“Where we are and the situation we are in we have to look at positive results against both Wroxham and Dereham,” Chenery said.

“Wroxham are bottom, although they won at Norwich United on Boxing Day.

“So that is a warning straightaway.

“Non-league football is not predictable at this level and expectations will have risen from our fans on the back of our win at Soham.

“That’s understandable and we know that. Our fans will expect us to win both games, but no team is going to come and just roll over.”

Another boost for the Blues – on the back of their win at Soham – is the signing of former Leiston schemer Leon Ottley-Gooch.

He is sure to be a big hit with the Ram Meadow faithful, bringing with him plenty of experience from higher up the non-league pyramid.

“I’ve been an admirer of Leon’s for a while, so I am pleased to get him,” Chenery said.

“I think it is good to freshen up with a face or two around this time of the season.”

Tonight’s game at Ram Meadow kicks off at 7.45pm.
