James on his return to action...
JAMES Chambers made a welcome return to action for the first time in two months at the weekend as he replaced hamstring-injury victim, Andy Taylor during the first half of our 1-1 draw at Bury.
"I've been out for a while, so I was just happy to be out there playing again," he said. "It's frustrating being on the sidelines whilst the team is playing well. I've tried to watch as many games as I can and generally be there to encourage the lads.
"Having a brother who has been playing and enjoying his football has made it even more frustrating, to be honest! But it was good to join him in the team on Saturday.
"We've certainly played better than we did at the weekend, but in the end we came away with a point from what was a hard game.
"When the opposition know that you play good football, it is their job to stop you and that is what Bury did. That said, I feel that we adapted as well as we could to the situation and the conditions."
Chambers played for over an hour at Gigg Lane and came through it with a smile on his face, eager for the next game to come along. "I've done a lot of good work with John Whitney, but the only way match fitness will come is by playing games," he added. "I didn't expect to get so long on the pitch at Bury, but I came through it wanting more!
"There is so much belief throughout the team in what we are doing. We have the confidence that we'll continue to create chances, score goals and ultimately win matches.
"It's a case of doing what we're doing and then see where it gets us."
