Exeter City defender Dean Moxey says the Grecians are raring to go as they target a return to winning ways against Bury.
City make the trip to Gigg Lane after a difficult run of form that recently saw them slip to defeat at home to Macclesfield Town last time out, but Dean says after a short break, the players are feeling fresh and are ready to get back to league action.
He said: “I think so, a few of us played on Tuesday night, but the lads are raring to go this weekend. We want to go up there and get three points and have a good night.
“We got away (in the break), my wife and I got away with Christy and his partner, so it was nice to take your mind off football for a weekend which is very rare, when you’re in League One or League Two, to have a free weekend. It was nice to get away, but we came back in on Monday and we’re raring to go.”
Dean believes if the Grecians are to take a victory away from Gigg Lane they will have to do so against a dangerous Bury side who have been in impressive form on their home turf of late.
Dean says three points on the road would prove a big boost on Saturday
He continued: “They’re a very good team, they’ve got a great squad for League Two. I know a few of the boys there and they’re doing well, and it will be a tough game, but we want to end the slide that we’ve been on and get the three points.
“Away games are always tough no matter where you go but with them being on a good run of form and scoring goals, it’s going to be a tough game. If we set up and play like we have been prior to November time, then I think we’ll be alright.”
Dean also thinks that if he and his teammates can go and get the win at Bury, that will set them up well as they look ahead to a busy Christmas fixture schedule.
“It will be massive,” said Dean. “They came down last year and are one of the favourites to go back up with the squad they’ve got, like I said, it’s going to be tough but to take three points against a contender with us then it will be massive and set us up great for the Christmas period.”
