Bury striker Mark Cullen expects to be heavily involved during his loan spell from Hull City.

The 19-year-old is a product of the Tigers' youth set-up and has joined the Shakers on a six-month loan deal.

"Hopefully I can play as much as possible and score some goals and help the team in the league," he told BBC Radio Manchester.

"The manager said I would be in and around the squad so hopefully I'll be playing quite a lot."

Cullen spent a month on loan at League Two side Bradford City last season, making four appearances, and he is hoping to add to his Football League experience with the Shakers.

"Obviously it is League One football so it is a good standard and I am looking forward to it," he added.

"As a young player all you want to be doing is playing football and sometimes that is not going to happen at Hull so here I am, I'm looking to play some games and hopefully I can do it."

The former Newcastle United trainee added that he is looking forward to spending time with Shakers strikers Ryan Lowe and Andy Bishop during his stint at Gigg Lane.

"Those two especially have got a lot of experience," he stated.

"They have been around and they know how to score goals.

"I want to improve every day and playing games and training with players like Bish [Bishop] and Lowey [Lowe] can only help me improve.

"Hopefully I can bring some goals, which every club needs, and that is my target."
