Strikes from Ryan Williams and Tony Diagne extended struggling Bury's winless streak to seven matches as the Shrimps moved up to fourth in the League Two table.

Bentley said: "We knew this was going to be a tough game. Bury can mix it - they can go long, they can play football and they've got players who can hurt you.

"They put us under a lot of pressure so we had to weather the storm and, when called upon, Barry Roche was excellent.

"But we dug in, addressed a couple of things at half-time and in the second half we were very professional, nice and solid.

"It's a fine dividing line but if you can get someone who can score from 30 or 35 yards, direct from a free-kick, you're always in with a chance.

"We got our noses in front and you could see the momentum was building, then big Tony (Diagne) has gone through and smashed one into the bottom corner.

"Two-nil might flatter us but you take it because it's three points again and a clean sheet."

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.
