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."
