James Collins' first league goal for the visitors sealed the three points, his stunning 20-yard lob inside 30 seconds giving Bury goalkeeper Trevor Carson no chance at Gigg Lane.

Blackwell said: "To be fair, we kept going, but we didn't work their goalkeeper enough. Sometimes the players have to take responsibility and certain players didn't do that. I'm not going to accept it.

"I've said to the board we need to change players and some new players are going to have to come in. I'm well aware of what's wrong here and I've been here seven days.

"Something's got to happen so I've got to change it and I will change it the best I can.

"Some of the signings have been garbage. The jury's out on some of them and I make judgements quickly. Unlike Abu Hamza, who took 14 years, I'll make a judgement quickly and I'll move them out."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
