Bury manager Alan Knill has backed his side to come back from their heartbreaking play-off semi-final defeat at the hands of Shrewsbury Town.
The Shakers eventually lost 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out at Gigg Lane after the tie had ended level at 1-1 on aggregate.
Knill told Sky Sports: "Obviously we're disappointed. I thought we were excellent, we created so many chances. Unfortunately it's about winning.
"You have to convert the chances and we didn't. When you move the ball and pass the ball like we did, you're going to create chances and you think one is going to go in. Unfortunately it didn't.
"It has been an excellent season from us. We have to learn from it and be stronger next year.
"Football is a lot about disappointment and character. It is such a difficult one to take because we played so well, but you have to."
