Harry Pickering is hoping to be involved against Ryan Lowe’s Bury side this weekend after a recent hamstring tear saw him miss eight games in all competitions.
David Artell stated earlier in the week that before the injury he sustained against Colchester United, Pickering had been one of his most consistent performers and that it has been a real bonus to have him back ahead of schedule.
The 19-year-old made his return as a second half substitute against Lincoln City at the weekend and he is hopeful that he has done enough to gain more time this weekend.
The promising teenager told Ifollow the Alex: “We played quite well at Lincoln and could have scored a few goals but we just lacked that final ball or cross.
“It is important that we take some of the positives from the Lincoln performance and take that into the home against Bury. We controlled large parts of the game against the team that are top of the league and played some good football.
“I thought that we matched them and we were in the game. It shows that we can compete against the best.
"I feel fit and that I can do a job for the team. Hopefully, I’ll get more minutes against Bury.
Pickering added: “We have great home form this season and it is important we carry that on. If we can and then transfer that into our away form then we have a great chance to move us up the league.”
