Jordan Sinnott and Danny Mayor has both given their reactions to the draw against Southend yesterday.

Bury went one nil down to an early Southend goal, before a spirited comeback in the second half saw Anton Forrester grab a deserved equaliser moments before full time.

Speaking to the Official Site Sinnott said firstly that everybody in the dressing room was disappointed to not come away with all three points because on the balance of the game and the performance we put in they felt it was deserved, but by the same token give the difficulties we had in finding the target, they were relived to have at least taken a share of the spoils in the game, as coming away with nothing would’ve been devastating.

‘We never want to lose, so a point is better than nothing but when you look back at the game and what they offered, it’s disappointing that we didn’t get the win.’

Sinnott added that the goal was against the run of the play in the first half, because we felt we were more than in control, so the goal came as a kick in the teeth and it took us longer than he’d have liked to bounce back and respond to it in the way we did. He agrees with Kevin Blackwell that we have to kick on quicker when we go a goal down, because if we respond that slowly again, on another day we could find ourselves two or three down, so the quicker and better we react the more chance we give ourselves of not only drawing level but also going on to secure the win.

Obviously given our current run of form, bringing an end to back to back defeats is huge for us, and Sinnott agrees that the point could be massive for us come the end of the game, but more importantly stopping the rot could prove to be a major turning point for us.

The official Man of the Match winner, Danny Mayor, surprisingly said he was disappointed with his own performance on the day, and he talked in general about the game.

‘In the second half we managed to get on top but we didn’t take our chances. The first goal was crucial, the goal was a wonder strike. If their goal wouldn’t have gone in we’d have won the game easily. We should have responded better after the goal but we allowed our heads to go down.’

As for his own performance he says that although he was beating his man regularly in the game, he was desperately disappointed with the accuracy of his final ball.

‘It’s disappointing because I’d done the hard bit I had beat my man, I just needed to put a good ball into the box. Today was just one of those days.’

Like Sinnott, Mayor agrees that given our performance wasn’t quite what it should’ve been there is a positive to take from the disappointment that we didn’t win the game, but equally we salvaged a point from a game we could’ve lost, and that itself is another positive for the players to take when it comes to confidence.

Mayor also says that come the New Year if Bury aren’t up and around the top half of the table, given the squad we have now and how we have showed we are capable of performing, then the players will need to take a long hard look at themselves ‘because we’ll have done something wrong’.
