Hinds Not Giving Up The Fight

Hinds Not Giving Up The Fight

The 33 year old centre half has seen himself replaced in the Bury first team of late, and although he said he accepted the managers decision, it doesn't mean he has to like it.

It doesn't mean he won't do everything he can to change the managers mind either.

Speaking to the Bury Times after losing his place to new signing William Edjenguele over the last few games, Hinds said that Kevin Blackwell had explained that 26 year old Edjenguele and 21 year old Nathan Cameron were his first choice pairing for defence, so it was up to him to change the managers mind and make sure that he pushes them all the way in training.

Hinds found himself recalled to the substitute bench for the game against Fleetwood because on loan Shaun Beeley was unable to play against his parent club, but he'd be hoping to play some part as the season draws on owing to his experience.

'All I can do is my best and put something in his mind to say 'I'm here, play me'. I want to put myself forward to say 'I think I am the best player', other wise I wouldn't be in this game.'

The problem for Hinds, as he admits, is that Blackwell believes that Edjenguele and Cameron are capable of going on to play at a much higher level and grow together as a defensive pairing over the coming seasons for Bury, so they will provide a lot of stability and understanding in defence and obviously given their ages, they do have a longer shelf life left in the game now compared to the time he has left in his career.

'It's my job to keep knocking on the door and pushing those two. If they are the future of the club then let's push them along and see what they are made of.'

The defender also said that despite our form and the results we've gained - or failed to - so far this season he feels Bury are extremely close to clicking properly and going on the run he feels this team are capable of doing, especially when it comes to promotion with four available spots, but the results are key because we can't let the gap between us and the chasing pack at the top grow too big.
