Bury midfielder Jay O’Shea feels he is finally showing Bury fans the stuff he is made of, thanks to the management of head coach Ryan Lowe.

O’Shea arrived the club in the summer of 2017 from Chesterfield as one of the most promising signings, just after helping Sheffield United to League One promotion while on load at the Blades.

However, the Irishman got injured in the opening game of the season and had another spell on the sidelines at the start of 2018.

Since Bury dropped to a lower tier, League Two and Lowe was named the new permanent manager, O’Shea has been a regular starter for Bury. Although he had to wait till October to get his first goal of the season, his brace in the recent win over Stevenage made it five goals in six games.

Speaking in an interview, the 30 year old said, “It was a frustrating year. I had a couple of injuries and obviously there was the relegation. It’s really nice to be enjoying my football again under the new gaffer. I think the style of play suits me”.

O’Shea has revelled at the front of a three man central midfield in recent weeks despite being used out on the flanks in previous seasons. His brace against Stevenage on Saturday even took him past his last season’s disappointing goal tally of four.

“Sometimes those games can be frustrating; it’s hard to break them down. We are going wide and not really getting so much joy. We needed to get a goal through the middle of the pitch and that’s what the gaffer is always saying”, Jay O’Shea added.

After the rout against Cheltenham on Tuesday night, Bury are now on a six game unbeaten run and find themselves fifth on the League One table.
