Jepson Appeals For Patience - Blackwell Leaves

Assistant manager Ronnie Jepson has called for patience with the Bury team after we lost another game against Morecambe last weekend.

Bury went down two nil on the day which extended our winless streak to seven games, and speaking to the press after the match, Jepson said that the squad still needed work in terms of gelling together after all the changes in the summer, but we also need more reinforcements to give us that lift on the pitch.

Mainly he points to a targetman who is capable of capitalising on the chances that we have been creating. Opportunities haven't been a problem for most of the season so far, it's just been an inability to finish them off that has cost us - along with leaking some unnecessary goals along the way.

'Week in, week out, we're created chances and we have to stick them in.'

A disappointment for Jepson is he feels Morecambe would've gone in very happy with themselves at half time because he knows they'll have been boosted by feeling they had weathered the storm and could come out second half playing more to their strengths and sadly that's exactly how it played out.

Talking about the patience element, he pointed towards the 'revolving door' at the club over the summer, both in terms of permanent players but also trialists coming and going, and unfortunately we haven't always been able to get the targets we wanted.

'We just have to try and gel this team. We know what's lacking. We need a proper target man.'

Adding that the staff at the club must have made in the region of 50 phonecalls to try and get targets they had identified, but non of them are coming off for one reason or another, and he feels in January we may well have to just pay for the one we want, instead of hoping a loan can come off.'

Following the Morecambe defeat the club have also parted company with manager Kevin Blackwell. His contract has been terminated with immediate effect and a statement has recently been released by the chairman, Stewart Day.
