Bury boss Alan Knill believes Andy Bishop's return to full fitness has given his side's promotion bid a massive boost.
The talismanic forward stepped off the bench to score the winning goal against Macclesfield on Tuesday after a year of injury problems.
And Knill feels his return has given his side a timely shot in the arm as they gear up for the business end of the season.
Knill said: "It's just good to have him back on the pitch. He's not 100% fit but we're going to ease him back in and hopefully within a week or two he'll reach full fitness.
"We've got some quality coming off the bench now, and the players and myself are full of confidence going into every game because we know we've got a strong squad."
