It was looking as though the hosts were going to be frustrated by Steven Schumacher's first-half penalty miss, but two goals in the final eight minutes from Craig Jones and Johnson Clarke-Harris earned the Shakers only a fourth home win all season and just a seventh in total in League One.

Standing in for manager Kevin Blackwell, Futcher, whose side went into the game on the back of six defeats in their previous seven, said: "The lads were outstanding and I can't praise them highly enough.

"We knew this was going to be a tough game. That's exactly how it panned out, but we've got a great spirit in the camp and it came to the fore perfectly late on.

"The main job is to put the ball in the back of the net though, and thankfully it's worked out for us.

"We just have to keep going. We have to keep creating the chances, and if we do that, we'll pick up the points we need.

"It was definitely a deserved win, but I guess it has to be about building on this momentum as much as we can now.

"We're off the bottom and of course the lads still believe they can get out of the bottom four."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
