Bury 5-4 Gillingham

Bury 5-4 Gillingham

Bury   5 - 4   Gillingham

Ryan Lowe was the hero as Bury claimed a thrilling 5-4 win against Gillingham.

Andy Bishop bundled in the first for Bury before being brought down in the area, Lowe slotting home the penalty.

Ade Akinfenwa scored two headers for Gills either side of Bishop's close-range second, before Danny Spiller's 20-yard strike made it 3-3.

Efe Sodje headed the Shakers back into the lead only for Chris Palmer to level the scores once more but Lowe secured the points with a curling effort.


Bury boss Alan Knill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"It was an absolutely incredible game and probably great for the neutrals but definitely not for the two managers.

"Three points is massive for us we were kind of mid-table and now all of a sudden Bury are seventh.

"I've got great faith in the players that if the opposition score then we can score and they showed a great desire to keep going forward."

Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent:
"As a manager it's hard to comprehend what's gone on today. We just weren't good enough, the players should be ashamed of that first half.

"One thing I do is praise the players if they deserve it, I couldn't praise them in the first half they just didn't get going.

"We made some bold decisions in changing the formation in the second half, and all of a sudden we were back in the game."
