Guy Whittingham: Got his eye on promotion

Centre-back N'Gala headed home a Ricky Holmes corner after four minutes to score his third goal of the season and steal the points.

In a busy afternoon for the big defender he was then lucky to stay on the pitch after a high and late lunge on Danny Hylton but referee Carl Berry deemed it only worthy of a yellow card.

It is the second home game in a row that the former Yeovil man has been the match winner and the result means the south-coast club are unbeaten in three league games.

Whittingham said: "We are seven points off the top and that is a good place to be. Of course we want to try and kick on for promotion as you want to be successful and that is our aim.

"Bondz had a good game for us and deserved his man of the match. He is attacking the ball well for us.

"We look at set-plays during the week and it's nice to see another one come off.

"With Bury having lost their manager in the week you always get a reaction and they reacted fantastically well for Ronnie Jepson, who will consider himself unlucky.

"We ground it out for sure and they will be disappointed."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
