Bury 2-1 Wednesday

Bury

Wednesday

Gigg Lane

Attendance: 5,219

Referee:

A total attendance of 5,219 with 2,618 Wednesdayites meant that Wednesday had the majority of the fans at Gigg Lane last night. Unfortunately this didn`t help Wednesday get over their travel sickness as the winless run away from home continued.

First half goals from the Shakers` captain Ryan Lowe and Damien Mozika saw Wednesday trailing 2-0 at half time.

A wonder strike from Chris Sedgwick early in the second half wasn`t enough to secure Wednesday one point let alone three.

Early rumours suggested Weaver and Rob Jones were doubtful, and that surprisingly Chris O`Grady would get his first start in the blue and white stripes. O`Grady, who had signed from Rochdale the week before, had yet to make a start as he was suffering from a heel injury picked up at Dale.

Weaver, suffering with a swollen knee since Monday, was replaced with Richard O`Donnell, but Jones did start along with O`Grady.

The early exchanges were tense, with a couple of near misses from David Prutton and Danny Batth, but it was Bury who scored first on the 7 minute mark.

A cross from the right by David Worrall was met by Ryan Lowe who directed the header into the top corner.

Jones was then replaced by Reda Johnson on 14 minutes, and Chris O`Grady was replaced, to the bemusement of the Wednesday faithful, with Jon Otsemobor just before the half hour mark.

Bury`s second was arguably down to an error on Johnson`s part. The young centre half was turned in the box, allowing Damien Mozika the chance to slot home.

Half time: Bury 2-0 Wednesday

Megson obviously had the hair dryer out at half time, as Wednesday emerged with renewed energy and optimism. David Prutton latched onto the end of Madine`s flick on, passed to Sedgwick on the left who curled a beautiful shot just under the crossbar to finally give the Wednesday majority something to cheer about.

Wednesday were lifted by the goal and could smell a comeback. Unfortunately, numerous missed chances, ruled out goals and penalty claims later, the game ended 2-1 to the 'home` side.

What a load of rubbish! It matters not if they had no fans at the game. It's the eleven men in blue and white that need to stand up and be counted. For me the jury and is still out on Megson.

Another season full of promise and already the rot has started only 3 games gone already.We as fans are loyal week in and week out and dont wanna watch s**t. I can tell all you fans out there now MM wants nothing but glory and if he has to keep making changes untill the glory days are back then he will. The Jury is still out on GM and he should be given a fair crack and half a season to prove his worth.So lets all pray and hope the the rot ends from today.I think he is a good coach but every season we just do not seem to gel week in and week out,(im just lost for answers)

I was merely pointing out the fans aren't getting what they deserve Kettering. If you have an opinion, why don't you write an article about it? :)

What a load of rubbish! .Was not aimed at you, But at yet another dreadfuly mis-managed outing. We are in this together and we all know everyone up's their game when we roll into town, or when they come to play at league one's equivelent to Old Trafford. We've got to get over it and show some Sheffield Steel. We need players who will go that extra mile. No room anymore for the lazy or half hearted. ALF's looking good. I know he's in league two now, but i think he could liven things up and maybe just maybe he could be the catalyst we need and the way to go ? ?

We need wingers, we have nothing out wide. I am hoping it's just a confidence thing as players aren't sure what the outlet is. Hit and hope to the strikers is no good though and isn't doing them justice. I am not sure what chance Madine has with the service he is getting. I think O'Grady will be good when fit and would love to see ALF sign. A winger is the most important right now. This inconsistency is tiring. Every year we look good but defenders just don't seem to concentrate, what is that? I like the look of the home shirt but refuse to buy it until we win 5 on the trot and I genuinely believe we are going to make a push. The manner of the performances in the last two games is what's tiring the fans, not the actual results!

I wonder if GM is doing enough analysis of the opposition before the game - this was one of AI's strengths. I might be over simplifying things, but it looks like we have started two games in a row with a slow strong team, playing against a weak fast team, and they are running rings around us. We have a decent mix of players (apart from pace) - why do we have to wait until half time before we figure out how to play against the opposition?

I went yesterday and saw Lines (who looks like a good player) pushing into the middle when it was obvious GM wanted him to play out wide. Needs must I suppose but its a big ask for a player on his first start to play with new team mates out of position. The result was a massive hole that Bury went through or 7 times. We need 2 wide players cas JJ is a impact player of the bench at best.

hahaha, can't believe i actually thought we had a chance of going up this season. Losing to bury, thats what its come to. its crazy that we're having to play teams like bury, but losing to them aswell. what is going on at this club. good team, but can never ever peform. we lost at bournemouth on saturday, maybe not all that bad, tough place to go to? stevenage went there and won last night. i dont know what needs to be changed, changed the manager, changed the players and we're still a bag of s**t
