    AFC Wimbledon 0 Bury 1


    by The Boy Holty

    Whilst taking part in the best jostle since Ryan Lowe's goal at Chesterfield in 2011, I was reminded that my knees really hurt when I jump around and that I need to take it easy in my old age.

    That aside a fantastic weekend was had by all, and being one of the 400 or so Bury fans (4th plaved Rochdale took just over half that amount to Wimbledon a couple of weeks ago) was a real privilege.

    For 75 minutes Bury were very much second best as Wimbledon had all the posession and attacking play without really creating much. We had defended well throughout and then when Platt and Akpa-Akpro replaced Forrester and Nardiello late in the game, the balance shifted and we pummelled them for 15 minutes. It loooked like it wasn't going to be enough despite A-A having a couple of gilt-edged chances but then Danny Mayor got on the end of a through pass from Platt, he cut inside and to the disbelief and delight of the travelling Shakers fans, he slipped it past the advancing keeper for a 94th minute goal and an unlikely away win.

    On Sunday me and Tim had a wander around that London, saw some sights (The London Eye, Big Benjamin, Houses of Parlimament, Buckingham Palace and all that sort of thing) and then came home, but football was the winner.
