Cheltenham 0-2 Bury

Cheltenham 0-2 Bury

Cheltenham   0 - 2   Bury

Striker Ryan Lowe inspired Bury to their third win of the season against a lacklustre Cheltenham.

Robins defender Steve Elliott brought down Efe Sodje in the area and Lowe was on hand to convert the penalty after just 11 minutes of the first half.

Cheltenham came close to an equaliser shortly after the re-start, but Elliott's header was cleared off the line by Steve Schumacher.

Michael Jones drilled home to seal the win in the final minutes of the game.


Bury boss Alan Knill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"Probably everything you want from an away performance was in that today and even though it was 2-0 it could have been far more comfortable.

"We worked really hard in the week with our shape to play against the diamond they play with and it worked really well.

"It was a real team performance where you have a work ethic and it was really good three points."

Cheltenham Town Boss Mark Yates told BBC Gloucestershire:
"We didn't really get started, didn't put in enough effort and I apologise to the supporters. We went out with a whimper but we've got a chance to put it right on Tuesday.

"Their my boys and I'm the manager so I take full responsibility for today, we need to grow up and start putting in consistent performances.

"Today wasn't good enough, one fan shouted at me that I didn't have a clue, and he was right today, as a team we didn't have a clue today."
