Despite losing their first Bostik North league game in five last weekend, Bury Town boss Ben Chenery is still happy with his side’s current form.
The Blues travel to Aveley on Saturday afternoon, on the back of a 4-2 defeat at Haringey Borough.
Two goals down in the first 20 minutes against a side higher in the league table than themselves, play-off-chasing Bury got the game back to 2-2 at half-time.
Chenery feels they should have gone on to win.
“You can’t afford to give two goals away like we did,” he said.

“In saying that, we were back at 2-2 and had some great chances to go on and win the game.
“We passed the ball well and played well on a 3G pitch which always suits the home team as they are used to playing on them.

“As a manager you are always looking at performances as well as results and as long as we are performing well – which we did at Haringey – I’m quite happy.”
Bury travel to an Aveley side who are now managed by former Brightlingsea Regent boss James Webster.
It’s been a season of transition at the Park Lane club – another who play on a 3G pitch.
But with just one league win in eight, it’s a chance for the Blues to pick up points.
“The first 20 or so minutes will be important,” Chenery said.
“Again, it’s a 3G pitch, so we will have to get used to the bounce of the ball, the roll of the ball. But we are just five points off the play-offs and playing well.
“There are a lot of points left to play for.”
Bury’s home game with Witham was postponed on Tuesday night with the Ram Meadow pitch waterlogged.
Saturday week sees, Chenery’s side entertain bottom-placed Cheshunt – a win on the road this weekend would put them in good heart.
Meanwhile, Mildenhall Town entertain Witham Town at the Recreation Way on Saturday.
Dean Greygoose and his team suffered their first league defeat in five at Aveley last weekend.
That recent decent run has lifted them up to 16th in the table.
