Jepson On Wycombe & Future

Jepson On Wycombe & Future

Caretaker manager Ronnie Jepson has said he was delighted with the attitude of the players in their fight back against Wycombe Wanderers and said that he'll give his all until January after it was announced he would remain in his position until the New Year.

Bury went behind early on in the first half in yesterday's match, but a second half fight back saw us take all three points thanks to goals from Tom Soares and William Edjenguele.

Wycombe being reduced to ten men with about 15 minutes to go in the game, also no doubt helped us to see out the win, but we were fully deserving of it before that incident occurred.

Speaking to the press following the match the caretaker manager explained.

'It was a good victory. It was a shame to go one nil down from a set piece, in the first half we were a little bit scrappy but we were still making headway.'

Jepson admitted that at the half time break a 'few words' were had with the players, but he couldn't have been more pleased with how they responded and approached the second half.

'I got a fantastic response, even before they were down to 10 men we were at it and our tails were up and thankfully we got a couple of goals.'

Jepson also talked about being appointed until January, and adopted a 'what will be will be' approach to extending his time in this role passed the New Year, explaining that the chairman had asked him to remain in the position and he was more than happy to do so, and he'll obviously give his all in the role and help to push Bury as far up the table as he can but come January if the chairman believes he's the right man for the role 'then fine' and if he doesn't he'll shake his hand nonetheless.

'I'm not one of those people who shouts 'give me the job'. You get judged on results, my appointment gives the club stability and that's the decision the board made.'

It's not all in his own hands as he depends on the players performing on the pitch, but yesterday's win and the way the players have performed in the main since he took over will certainly have done him no harm at all when it comes to his chances at this moment in time.
