Jevons sure Bury will bounce back

Substitute Jevons scored the only goal in Saturday's win over Accrington

Bury striker Phil Jevons says the side will bounce back for the play-offs after his late penalty proved too little to ensure automatic promotion.

The Shakers missed out on League Two's top three by just one goal, despite beating Accrington 1-0 on Saturday.

Jevons told BBC Radio Manchester: "I don't think it will be difficult to pick ourselves up again.

"We've always had it in the back of our minds that we might end up in the play-offs," he added.

"Footballers are quite diligent in that respect, in that they'll get on with things and we'll regroup, do a bit of preparation on Shrewsbury and hopefully go there on Thursday and get the right result.

"Everyone says going up at Wembley would be the perfect way to go up, if you could choose, but it's not always that simple. Losing out in the play-offs is heartbreaking and we need to be sure we can get the right result.

"We have finished fourth and that gives us home advantage in the second leg and that might be the thing that gets us through in the end. Hopefully the fans can come back out on Sunday and roar us on to Wembley."
