Bury captain Steven Schumacher is demanding an improvement when his side host Gillingham this weekend.
The Shakers have collected just five points from their opening four games and lie seven points adrift of leaders Torquay.
And midfielder Schumacher says his side must kick-start their stuttering campaign with victory against the Gills.
He said: "We've got five points, we should have nine or 10 points, but we haven't so we have to address it.
"I'm sure we will get it right and hopefully we will get it right on Saturday. Gillingham will be a tough test for us. We've got to be up for it and match them."
