Flitcroft - Good Southend Point

Manager David Flitcroft has said he was happy enough to come out of the game against Southend United with a point.

There weren't many chances for either side in the match, and of course Bury could've capitalised on numbers when they had a player sent off eight minutes from time, but that despite the gaffer was pretty happy with our work rate against a team looking to get their own play off push back on track.

Speaking to the press following the game he explained.

'It was a very scrappy game but we dug in and our defence were very resilient which I'm proud about. There was a spell in the first half that I was really pleased with, we pressed Southend and we looked a threat going forward.'

One strange thing from the game that you don't see very often was the manager's decision to switch goalkeepers at half time, and Flitcroft still feels it was the right decision as he referenced Brian Jensen having a bad day at the office when it came to giving away possession with some wayward kicking, and although the decision was all the stranger as it was 19 year old Reice Charles-Cook's club debut and Football League debut, he didn't do too badly at all.

One disappointing thing from the Fleetwood Town game that was announced by the gaffer following full time against Southend though was the injury to on loan Anton Forrester who has now had to return to parent club Blackburn Rovers as he has damaged both his anterior cruciate ligament and his medial cruciate ligament and is now set for between six to nine months out of the game, so his season is over.

The gaffer explained that he knew it was a bad injury and Anton was in a bad way following the challenge, and whilst describing it as a 'nasty tackle' our gaffer didn't believe there was any intent behind it, but Flitcroft believes the youngster can take heart in knowing that Blackburn have one of the best physio's in the country in the shape of Dave Fevre so he's in very good hands moving forward now, so everyone at the club wishes him the very best and as speedy a recovery as it's possible to have with injuries of those ilk.

This means the 20 year old's loan spell with us is obviously over, and he leaves us having made 31 appearances all in, with 19 starts across all competitions and having scored seven goals in total.
