SHAK­ERS ROSE TO THE OC­CA­SION

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FIRST ROUND -

BURY cer­tainly showed they are over their mi­nor blip of form with an em­phatic win over the 2013 FA Cup win­ners.

As man­ager David Fl­itcroft said, it was a team per­for­mance and the Shak­ers rose to the task to dis­patch of a team that hadn’t lost in nearly two months.

Bury were on top form as they dis­man­tled Wi­gan with liq­uid foot­ball through­out the 90 min­utes. A spe­cial men­tion for their sec­ond goal, a mag­nif­i­cent counter at­tack led by Ja­cob Mel­lis af­ter win­ning the ball in his own half.

On a side note, you have to feel sorry for Wi­gan goal­keeper Richard O’Don­nell as it be a game he will want to for­get in a hurry. He didn’t cover him­self in glory as he fum­bled Tom Pope’s header into his own goal.
