JPT Northern Q/F: Bury 3 Preston 3 (Preston win 5-4 on penalties)

BURY’S run of miserable luck continued at Gigg Lane on Tuesday night as they were dumped out of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on penalties.

But the way they battled back after going behind three times in an amazing Northern Area quarter-final tie made it feel more like a moral victory and could still prove to be a turning point in their difficult season.

Goals from Joe Skarz, Matt Doherty and a sublime stoppage-time strike from captain Steven Schumacher countered scrappy efforts from Preston’s Jack King, Andy Procter and Stuart Beavon.

Both sides then buried their first four spot-kicks, before Preston keeper Thorsten Stuckman pulled off a smart save to deny on-loan Wanderers midfielder Gregg Wylde and Graham Cummins grabbed his chance to send the Deepdale outfit into the regional semi-finals.

Bury's first goal was a disgrace. When a ball is thrown out by a keeper to attend to an injury it is normal football etiquette to give the ball back is it not? Obviously not for Kevin Blackwell and David Healey. Bury you've lost my respect and as a casual attendee of games at Gigg the occasional £20 as well.

Bury White nobody is more critical of Healy than me,but to be honest when you're playing against a team managed by Graham Westley and one of their players goes down "injured",a healthy degree of scepticism is advisable.These injury breaks with Westley's teams are usually choreographed in advance so it was nice to see Bury not falling for the stunt and refusing to give the ball back.It might be considered etiquette to give the ball back but in the majority of cases the "injury" is a fake and the team who put the ball out gain an unfair advantage.

I would like to agree but i fail to see how, when the goalkeeper has the ball and throws it out for a player to get treatment, you could call that an unfair advantage, the attack was over as the goalkeeper had the ball.

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you view it, it will add spice to the clash on Boxing Day

Well at the end of the day we are out of yet another competition on penalties.

I might have known it would be the lamentable Gregg Wylde who missed the vital kick.

Apparently we were interested in signing Cummings on loan a month or two back.

Had wylde not been playing and Cummins been in our team we might have won the penalty shoot out.

The honeymoon is definitely over now Kev and once again you have come up short in a match.

The positives to take out of this game is that we showed real fighting spirit to come back 3 times.

In the end it was all to no avail.
Our culture of glorious failure returns to haunt us.

(TAXI FOR KB PLEASE)

I think you should remember where we were when KB came in. He's worked miracles to get us back in touch.

As for last night, perhaps if teams stopped giving the ball back and left it to the ref, then teams run by the likes of Westley wouldn't keep stopping the game to waste time.

Yes you make some valid points Tommy.

Some folk know when their team should score and how to maximise the advantage of using extra time which they created in the first place with time wasting tactics.

On another point KB has not impressed me in his last 5 matches in charge.

If we have a bad christmas and new year then we will be back to where we were before we appointed him in terms of points deficit to the team in 20th position.

See you all at Deepdale on Boxing Day. It should be a good game, it's always nice to see Mr Blackwell and Mr Healy :)

KB is ruining your club and I think the Bury fans know it.

Agreed easylife,
If we beat Shrewsbury tomorrow, we go upto joint 20th with them....and who's to say we won't?
Sure, we were poor against Orient, but apart from that we've done ok really. We just need to cut out the silly mistakes at the back and finish off a few more of our chances and we'll be fine......i'd be more worried if we weren't creating the chances.

The law of averages show that not every loan signing was going to be a hit, all KB has to do is get rid of the bad ones (and he will) come January and replace them with better ones again. We cannot be this pessimistic at this stage of the season, there's such a long way to go yet. We have to believe he will get us out of this mess and i for one think he will.

Well i presume you are asking me to disappear from this site until August Easy.

I am entitled to my opinions here or anywhere.

I am not a fickle fan but cannot see much improvment of late.

4 wins in 17 games (things can only get better).

I have to admit that what is happening off the pitch is beginning to affect the results on the pitch.

3 points tomorrow night weather permitting will go a long way to silence the doubters and improve our chances of staying up.
