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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
