Bury boss Ryan Lowe is relishing life in League Two as his Bury side learn how to win football matches once more.
The Shakers are in the mix for an automatic promotion spot and an immediate return to League One, as well as a single game away from a Wembley final in the EFL Trophy.
That’s a situation that has caused Lowe to speak to the Bury Times, clearly delighted that his side have found their rhythm again after a tough season in 2017/18.
“We’ve got a winning mentality and it goes from the top of the club to the bottom – and back again. We want everyone to be winning, whether it’s the academy, the youth team, cup competitions or the first team. We want to be a club that’s winning games.”
Lowe skirts around the previous season in which they dropped out of the third-tier, instead preferring to focus on what they have collectively achieved over the past seven or eight months.
“Over the past – and I hate talking about the past – we haven’t been used to winning games. Now we are and we’ll stick with that because we’ve got a winning philosophy right through the club.”
Bury are currently third in the table, four points behind leaders Lincoln City having played a game more. They face a tough trip to play-off hopefuls Exeter City this weekend, hoping to at least close the gap on second placed Mansfield Town.
Bury are a good footballing side, excellent with the ball and able to transition very quickly from front to back by keeping the ball on the deck.
They had a tough start and had they not stumbled at first, they’d be clear leaders by now. It all makes for a fascinating run in as they hunt the top three spot that rewards them with League One football once more.
With Lowe at the helm, they might just get there too.
