ANDY Welsh and his Bury AFC players are prepared to take on all comers and all conditions in their quest for glory.

AFC stretched their unbeaten league record to 19 games after beating Cleator Moor Celtic 5-1 in Arctic conditions at Neuven Stadium on Sunday.

With Welsh’s side yet to taste defeat in the FA Vase and the Manchester Premier Cup, the manager is ready to take on who and what is put in front of his side.

AFC moved back up to second place in NWCL First Division North thanks to two goals from Tom Greaves and one each for Jonathan Hunt, Adam McWilliam and Lewis Gilboy.

Ahead of Saturday’s trip to Ashton Town, Welsh said: “Everyone looks at us thinking they are going to win or hopefully this team will beat Bury.

“But we have got to do a job, we have got to stick together.”

Of the tricky conditions against Cleator Moor, he added: “I’m glad we got the game on in the end and credit to everyone at the football club to make that happen.

“In the end it was a case of trying to play the conditions to the best of our ability and I thought we did that.”

Jimmy Moore, echoed his boss’s sentiments and warned rivals - including Ashton Town - that AFC can adapt how they play to suit the conditions.

“It was one of those where you look at the pitch and you say we just have to win, great the three points,” he said.

“It’s all about consistency now, I remember the Ashton game here, we played well and won 3-0 so we just need to go there and repeat the performance.

“Hopefully we have got a pitch to play on but if not, we adapt our game and hopefully go and get the three points. That is the aim.”
