DANNY Mayor is ready to mix up his game after the Bury winger notched up his first goal of the season against Walsall on Saturday.

The 25-year-old struck the crucial equaliser as the Shakers clawed their way back from three goals down against the Saddlers.

But it is not just goals the former Preston and Sheffield Wednesday wide man is looking to add to the team.

Mayor says he is eager to continue creating chances for his team-mates, as he did when crossing for Tom Pope to score against Morecambe in Tuesday night's 4-1 win in the Checkatrade Trophy.

“I think you can't be so predictable by cutting inside off the left all the time,” Mayor said. “You have got to mix your game up.

“The gaffer has tried me in a couple of positions and as long as I'm creating I don't mind where I play.

“I've been played on the left, right, middle, behind the striker. I will play anywhere to help the team win.”

Mayor built a solid relationship with Chris Hussey down the left channel last season, but the left-back has since been sold to Sheffield United.

Danny Rosde, the winger's former house-mate, was also sold to Mansfield at the beginning of the transfer window.

Even with two of his closest friends leaving the club, Mayor is still loving life at Gigg Lane and is excited by the prospect of building an even stronger relationship with Hussey's replacement Greg Leigh.

“Hussey and Rosey leaving hasn't affected my game at all,” Mayor said. “They are still my friends, I still talk to them. I talk to Rosey more than I talk to my missus at times.

“They have gone on to better their careers and we have got just as good players in.

"Look at Greg Leigh against Walsall, he's put eight crosses into the box.

“He's rapid. You know he's going to maraud and get beyond you, a bit like Hussey did.

"He gives me an option and gets lots of crosses in.”

Mayor picked up a booking for celebrating with the fans after scoring the equaliser on Saturday, but he says it was well worth taking the punishment for.

“(Jacob) Mellis pushed me a bit further in and a fan grabbed me but I'd take a booking to score any day,” he said.
