Knill - We made it easy for them

Knill - We made it easy for them

Bury boss Alan Knill was pretty peeved with his side's performance yesterday following the Railwaymen's 3-0 win.

It was a thoroughly deserved result for the Alex whilst Bury were lucky to escape at just 3-0, it could quite easily have been five or six had the likes of Zola, Powell and Donaldson put away chances, including a missed penalty.

Bury failed to create any opportunities of note with the Alex rearguard not even offering so much as a corner kick to a side that put five past Gillingham last weekend.

Knill looked down and out after the game yesterday and he told Bury's official website that his side just didn't turn up.

'If you have 10 out of 11 not turning up, that's what happens. Then to give them a goal two minutes in? This is Crewe, probably one of the most potent attacking teams in the league.

'I don't think we turned up at all today. It was a poor performance and we got what we deserved. Well done to Crewe but I've got to say that we made it easy for them.

'It happens, there's nothing we can do about it now; just put it behind us and move on.'


Knill also felt that Steven Schumacher was unfairly sent off. The former Alex midfielder was shown red mid way through the second half after picking up his second yellow of the afternoon following a lunging tackle on Calvin Zola.

Knill felt Schumacher got the ball...

'I thought he got the ball and his momentum meant he went through Zola. I think 10 years ago we'd have all been clapping saying 'great tackle', unfortunately the game has change a whole lot.'
