Gilbert: 'We seem to be doing better away from home at the moment'

Blues left back Peter Gilbert wants a return to his first team place against Bury Saturday after being left out of last weekend's line-up in the defeat against Crewe. Gilbert: 'Like everyone else I want to be playing' Luggy has now admitted the 5-3-2 was all a terrible mistake, so expect Johnny Herd and Luke Prosser to have the axe fall before Saturday's long trip to Bury and surprising absentee in that awful performance against teh Railwaymen Peter Gilbert to be re-instated.Gilbert told www.echo-news.co.uk: "It was disappointing to be left out because just like everyone else I want to be playing. It's up to the manager if he decides to put me back in but it would be brilliant if he does because I want to help the lads get all three points after a couple of bad results." Certainly the former Northampton man accepts that the team's form when not playing at Roots Hall seems to improve, any guesses why?He continued: "We seem to be doing better away from home at the moment and we've shown we can do well against the top teams already this season. We played well at Chesterfield and should definitely have taken something from that game. If we can play like that again tomorrow then we will have a chance of getting a good result. We all know we need to start being more consistent if we are to get back up the table and we want that to start from tomorrow." S24 is confident the team and tactics against Bury will be the very similar to the one that beat Hereford away 3-1, however the Shakers are very different opponents!
