ANDY Welsh is looking for consistency to get the complete performance out of his side.

Bury bounced back from back-to-back defeats with a 2-1 win against Cheadle Town on Saturday but were denied maximum Bank Holiday Weekend points after Charnock Richard grabbed a late equaliser in Monday’s 2-2 draw.

The Shakers have now scored 20 goals in eight league games but have conceded 14 - and that is an area Welsh is looking to address.

“Things don’t happen overnight,” Welsh told the club website ahead of Saturday’s clash at home to West Didsbury and Chorlton. “We just need to be consistent and keep trying the right things, keep trying to keep the ball out of the back of our net but also keep being brave on the ball in an attacking manner that we’ve been doing.

“I’ve no doubt that the players will continue to flourish this season. 

“Going forward it’s been excellent, at the back every single one of us needs to improve and I’m sure will do.”

On Saturday, goals from Harry Brazel and Lewis Gilboy earned Bury a fifth win of the season and they were on course for a sixth after an Andy Briggs goal and an own goal had seem them battle back from a goal down only for Charnock Richard to level in the 88th minute.

Welsh said it felt like two points dropped against a side who knocked them out of the FA Cup earlier this month.

“When it gets that late in the game it definitely feels like that,” he said. “We are scoring goals it’s about keeping it tight and we were so close to getting that next win.

“I know that the players are desperate, we’re all desperate to keep that clean sheet as well.”

Welsh hopes to have Benito Lowe in contention at the weekend but the manager has stressed he won’t rush him back too soon.

“I know he’s desperate...but we’ve got to be careful,” said Welsh. “We don’t want to risk him and then we lose him for the season. The season has barely got underway and there is still loads to go at.”
