HARRY Bunn says this weekend’s break has come at the wrong time for the Shakers.

The forward opened his Bury account against Blackburn Rovers in Tuesday night’s 1-0 win in the Checkatrade Trophy.

It was the club’s second win in three games, and Bunn would have liked the chance to build on the victory in Saturday’s scheduled clash at neighbours Oldham.

But the game has been rearranged for Tuesday, October 24 because the Latics have five players away on international duty.

“It’s unfortunate,” Bunn said of this weekend’s postponement. “I thought, with the confidence we have got in the team now we would have liked to have played, but we will rest up and be ready to go again next week.”

Bunn, aged 24, had lost his starting place in recent matches after failing to fire following his summer move from Huddersfield.

So he was relieved to show manager Lee Clark what he is capable of after scoring his first goal for Bury on his return to the starting line-up.

“It was nice to get off the mark and obviously it was a good win for us,” he said. “It’s something off my back now and hopefully I can go out and get another.”

Bunn hopes his match-winning exploits will improve his chances of a start in the club’s next match at home to Bradford a week on Saturday.

“There’s a lot of lads coming back from injury and everyone feels they have got a point to prove,” Bunn added. “There’s good competition for places so a goal and a good performance is good.

“It’s a long season and I think Tuesday showed what we can do so hopefully we can start winning more games in the league.”
