Blues bounce back from early own goal to beat league newcomers 3-1


Bury Town boss Ben Chenery was delighted that his side were able to bounce back from a fluke own goal after 2 minutes to score three second half goals and defeat Cambridge City on a boiling hot day at the Denny Bros Stadium.

Another good crowd of 334 had assembled but it was the visitors who took the lead in just the second minute with a fluke own goal when a clearance came back off Joe Hood to loop over 'keeper Daniel Barden.

Ben had to say "We were looking to bounce back from the FA Cup defeat, we conceded an own goal early on which was unfortunate and unlucky but we did not drop our heads and tried hard to get back into the game in the first half without creating too much"

"The second half was a different story and we looked much more threatening. Manu came on off the bench and caused them all sorts of problems. It was vital we got back into the game quickly after half time and a great strike from Ryan Horne drew us level.

"We looked dangerous and another good move saw us take the lead when Jarid Robson was in space in the box and converted from close range. This really gave us a lift and Manu sealed the game when he showed good strength to beat his man and finish low into the corner"

"I was really pleased with the character the players showed. They have played two games in three days in over 30 degrees heat, and we finished the game really strongly. We can't undo the disappointment of the FA Cup, but it was important we did not dwell on it for too long and got a result against Cambridge City, so credit to them for that"
