BURY boss Dave McNabb says a good changing room is worth 10 points and he believes a long trip to Kendal on Saturday is the ideal way to help team building.

The Shakers boss is looking for three points against the Mintcakes and then enjoy ‘a sing-song and a beer’ to boost camaraderie on and off the pitch.

“I think we need the journey, we need to travel,” he told the club website. “It will be a good opportunity for the lads to spend some time away from the pressures of training and matches.

“We’ll hopefully have a sing-song and a beer on the way home because the changing room is worth 10 points and we have got some unbelievable lads in terms of personalities and the type of lads they are and they have the ability to go with it.

“So it is about us bringing them together and make sure they are knitting on and off the pitch.”

Bury travel to Cumbria on the back of a 3-0 win at West Didsbury and Chorlton in a game where the hosts finished with nine man while Connor Comber scored and was sent off for the Shakers.

Anton Smith and an Andrew Briggs penalty - both in injury time - wrapped up victory, a result that McNabb said slightly flattered his side.

“It’s quite difficult with the red cards and sin bins, it was a bit of a strange game,” he said. “Being honest, the 3-0 maybe flatters us a little bit but, as the same time, there was only one team in the game.

“Three clean sheets on the bounce, another three points so we have got to take it.”
