Bury boss Richie Barker has stressed the importance of beating the teams around them in the table as they seek to establish themselves.

The Shakers have taken seven points from their first six games and were thumped 4-0 at Sheffield United last weekend.

Yet Bury have played several leading promotion contenders among that sequence of results and Barker is keen to maintain a sense of perspective.

He said: "We have had a difficult start to the season and, not counting Preston, we have played everybody now who will finish in the top six at the end of the season.

"What I have told my players now is to compete with the teams that are in our little mini-league.

"We need to take points from teams around about us in the table now.
