Dennis Reflects on Bury Match

20 February 2017

Despite scoring his seventh goal of the season, striker Kristian Dennis was devastated after Bury came back to record a 2-1 win.

Dennis had stabbed the Spireites ahead in the first half after a beautifully chipped ball from Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, but after two second half goals from Bury, the dejected forward admitted it was meaningless.  

“It doesn't mean anything at the minute,” the forward told Player HD. “I guess it is nice personally to get on the scoresheet, being a scruffy goal as well, it was kind of what we needed at the time.

"I'm devastated with the manner of the defeat, having been 1-0 up as well, which we haven't been in a while. 

“Then in the second half in the final 15 minutes they get them both, everyone is disappointed in there.”

Having been the better side in the first half, the 26-year-old struggled to explain what changed in the final 45 minutes. 

“The first half we were comfortable, but then the second half, I just, I don't know what changed. Maybe the mentality, nerves maybe, but you have got to see the game out with 15 minutes to go.”

Gary Caldwell had selected the former Macclesfield man alongside the attacking duo of Ebanks-Blake and David Faupala, and for first 45 it was very effective. 

“It was good, SEB is a handful up there for any defence, we found out yesterday that we were all playing and we took confidence from that, as you saw in the first half. But like I say, it is irrelevant now, because we were beaten and we need results on the board.” 

Asked what the side need to do against Millwall on Tuesday Dennis simply replied: “Win.” 

“Go out there and get a result any means necessary,” Dennis continued. 

The striker urged the fans to get behind the team as they battle for their place in League Two, telling Player HD how vital their support is to the team. 

“We definitely need them; just keep supporting us, even though we are in a tough time at the minute, stick with us.”
