Danny Rose put the U's head in the 33rd minute with a free-kick from 25 yards and, after Tom Soares had equalised for the Shakers after 70 minutes, Johnny Mullins restored Oxford's advantage by turning in David Hunt's low free-kick 10 minutes from time.

Cameron was sent off when he received a second yellow card for protesting too much.

He had given away the free-kick which led to Mullins' winner, collecting a yellow card for the initial foul before being booked again for arguing when the hosts turned it into a goal.

Blackwell said: "The sending-off was absolutely pathetic. It was a nothing foul. As a manager you want the decisions to be equal. It can't be that as the away team decisions always go against you.

"But he'll be done two weeks' wages for getting sent off, in line with our policy."

On the game, the Bury boss added: "We came back from their goal in the first half, showed terrific character but just didn't finish off the approach play. The second half was one-way traffic.

"It disappoints me that we got nothing from the game because we were comfortable, even in the first half before Oxford scored. You've got to take something from games like that.

"We should be sitting here with six points from the first two games instead of none. We switched off for the free-kick at the second goal, which is an absolute crime."

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.
