Bury Town boss Ben Chenery has hailed in-form striker Ollie Hughes, ahead of the Blues’ away game at Wroxham tonight, in Ryman North.

Town could go top of the table, should they win and other results go their way, and any victory would no doubt see his joint-leading scorer at the heart of the action.

Hughes, who has also played for Walsham-le-Willows, Leiston and AFC Sudbury, has already become a crowd favourite at Ram Meadow, having plundered five goals in his opening eight games of the campaign.

“Ollie is in good form and that’s no surprise to me given how hard he works,” said Chenery, whose side remain unbeaten in the league.

“I always say the harder you work, the luckier you become and the lad runs his socks off and is hard for centre-halves to play against.

“He has got a great attitude and his work-rate has set the tone and already got him goals this season.”

Meanwhile, Bury are loving life in Ryman North, following their relegation from the Premier Division.

“Winning is a habit, as is losing and we have great belief and cohesion which we work on every week in training,” added Chenery.

“We are the only unbeaten team in the league and we are proud of that.”
