Bury caretaker boss Richie Barker has applauded Ben Futcher as his side near the end of their promotion-chasing season.
The Shakers lie second, five points clear of fourth-placed Shrewsbury with just four matches remaining.
Automatic promotion to League One beckons and Barker was delighted to see defender Futcher underline his quality with a fine display in Saturday's 2-0 home win over Barnet.
Barker said: "He's had five or six play-off campaigns and he knows what it's all about.
"As well as the defending, he was out there for his experience. He's an important part of the squad.
"His attitude, not only since I came in, but with Alan Knill as well, is absolutely brilliant, especially for someone who doesn't play that often."
