September Review

A busy September saw the Shakers play eight games, seven in the league and one in the Checkatrade Trophy.
Starting with a tough home clash with high flyers Scunthorpe, which ended in a narrow 1-0 win for the
Irons, with a late goal stealing all three points. Next, followed back to back away games with Rotherham
and Fleetwood both ending in 3-2 losses for the Shakers.

On their return to Gigg Lane, Bury managed to win their first point of the month, with a goalless draw with
Plymouth. However, three days later Bury suffered their lowest point of the month, and the season so far,
as they were given a 4-0 beating in the derby by local rivals Rochdale in the Checkatrade trophy, which
cranked up the pressure on manager Lee Clark. A one all draw with Charlton followed, and then their
appeared to be light at the end of the tunnel, as the Shakers turned in an exceptional performance to put
Oxford to the sword by three goals to nil, and give the home fans something to cheer about. To finish the
month Clark’s side were beaten 2-0 by MK Dons despite being the better side for the majority of the game.
Going into October Bury sit just outside the relegation zone on goal difference (by one goal), and will be
hoping to string together a run of results that will propel them back up the table.
