Bury boss Alan Knill wants his playing squad to live and learn after the poor performances last week that ended up in FA Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy elimination.
The Shakers slid to defeats against Aldershot on Saturday and Accrington Stanley in midweek and Knill will be hoping his side can turn the corner against big-spending Notts County this weekend.
Speaking to Bury Times, he said: "We have conceded five goals in two games and none of them have been great goals.
"If the players want better careers, they need to push themselves more.
"It shouldn't take a telling-off from the manager."
