'We should have scored five or six'
KEVIN Blackwell felt his Bury team should have scored five or six goals against Cheltenham Town on Saturday.
The Shakers were convincing 4-1 winners at Gigg Lane to leave Blackwell raving about his players, but adding that he was always demanding more.
"We got sloppy for 10 or 15 minutes in the second half, and I'd like to have scored five or six to be honest," Blackwell (above) said.
"Cheltenham reached the play-offs last season and they are a strong and robust side.

"They beat Accrington last week for their first win in the North for a long time and that gave them confidence, but we've sent them back on the bus with a lot to think about.
"We should have scored more, but it's building something I want to be part of and they are playing the way I want them to play, so hopefully we can keep it going."
Bury were relegated from League One last season, but an overhaul funded by a new owner has given Blackwell an almost completely new team.
They have scored 16 goals already this season, something that took them until October 22 to achieve last term.
"We are playing some great stuff and we look like we can score at will now," Blackwell said.
"The fans are loving the football we are playing and the goals we are scoring.
"We are only at the start and there will be dips, but our performances have been consistently good so far.
"We have to make Bury a fortress and if we win at home and draw away we'll get promoted, that's the sort of ethos you've got to have.
"I've always loved attacking football and that's how I want us to play."
