Notts County 2 Bury 4

First published in Bury FC by

Bury cemented their place in League One next season in style with a thrilling 4-2 victory at Notts County today.

The Shakers only needed one point to achieve their pre-season target of survival, and they got it despite going down to 10 men when the result was still in the balance at 3-2.

Mike Grella grabbed two goals, and David Worrall and Mark Carrington got the others to put a severe dent in the home side's hopes of making the play-offs.

Worrall put Bury ahead with a 25-yard drive three minutes before the break, but an own goal from Giles Coke levelled a minute into the second half.

Grella quickly restored Bury's lead three minutes later, and extended it on 67 minutes as the Shakers took control.

The pendulum swung back the home side's way when Mike Edwards headed in on 79 minutes, and when Bury's Andrai Jones was sent off for a second bookable offence three minutes later, the nerves started jangling among the travelling support.

But Carrington made sure of the points when he succeeded in a one-on-one in the last minute.

A fantastic away day success for The Mighty shakers who have finally put their away jinx to bed having not won an away game since they beat Scunny on Boxing day.If we can finish the season well then hopefully that can be carried forward to next season.If this squad is kept together then there is no reason why we can't push on next season.Ofcourse the board might have other ideas when they see the monetory value of selling our better players for peanuts in the summer.
I have to hand it to Richie he has proved me and other critics wrong this season.You have all the tools to become a very successful manager.I just hope that we can become a little bit more consistant throughout next season.We have had a tremendous first season back in league 1 with lots of up's and down's.October and April have b een stand out months because of our points tally in those months.It's funny how we always seem to do well at Meadow Lane no matter who the personnel are in our team.

Wonderful slick passing football from the lads today.Worrell,Coke,S
weeney and Grella were sublime while Clarke,Sodje,Bond,Sc
humacher and Harrad put in excellent shifts.Only in the two full back positions did we look weak,the last two performances have shown that Jones still has a long wat to go before he's a league one defender while Skarz was as pedestrian as ever and jumped as if his feet were encased in cement for Notts second goal.Two new fuul backs are a must for next season along with an attempt to sign Nathan Clarke to accompany the hopefully returning Trevor Carson.The four man midfield of Worrall,Schuey,Coke and Sweeney has been a revelation in the last few games as has Mic Grella's flitting between the lines.Without the show pony Amoo, and with two showing up front there has been a pleasing fluidity in attack recently let 's hope this continues in the last two fixtures.Those of us who thought Barker should have been sacked a month or so ago have maybe been proved wrong,but I still feel he was extraordinarily lucky not to get the boot after the Wycombe fiasco.If there hadn't been a midweek fixture straight afterwards the board may well have lost patience and made a managerial change and certainly no one would have blamed them.If Barker is in charge again next year I feel we need to appoint a more dynamic assistant,preferrabl
y one with a thicker contact book than the current duo possess.

nomore,
we have to remember, if Coke had've scored the penalty at 1-2 against Wycombe, i'm pretty sure we'd have gone onto win that game as we were quite clearly in the accendency. The subsequent miss seemed to deflate us and defeat ensued......i guess it's all ifs and buts though but goes to show how fine the line is between winning and losing.
However, this was a great result if unexpected by the pools wreckers and once again we have renewed optomism going towards next season. One or two new faces over the summer should give us a decent campaign again.....here's hoping anyway.
UTS!!!!!!!!
