Jones one of the youngsters in impressive form at Bury

| 21.11.2010

Alan Knill believes that Bury are “lucky” to have retained the services of Mike Jones for another season as the winger is just one of the youngsters making solid progress at the club.

Bury remain fully involved in the League Two promotion picture after their 3-1 victory at Burton, which was their fifth away win on the bounce.

This ensured that they remain four points adrift of current pace setters Chesterfield and they remain available at a big 5/1 to win League Two.

Although Ryan Lowe may gain a vast amount of the plaudits for his ten league goals already this season, manager Knill instead opted to focus on the fine performance of Jones against Burton.

The 23-year-old helped himself to his sixth goal of the campaign with the opener against Burton and was generally a constant menace throughout.

Knill said: “I think he is a top player. I think he has been here three years now and we are lucky to have secured his services again.”

He added that his team are liable to remain particularly dangerous in away games because the home team have to attack and are not expected to simply sit back.

Chesterfield are joint favourites to win League Two at 3/1 and bounced back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory at Aldershot.

The Spireites saw a seven-game unbeaten run in League Two ended recently against Burton, but were quick to ensure that this was nothing more than a minor blip.

Port Vale are the other 3/1 favourites to take the title and they are two points behind Chesterfield.

Vale displayed their credentials by inflicting a first away win of the season over Wycombe and also showed that they can score from all areas of the pitch as it was defender John McCombe struck the match-winning double.

Rotherham and Shrewsbury are among the other clubs who will still fancy their chances of winning League Two. See the full League Two winners betting odds market.
