Late strike earns Bury cup win at Blackburn Rovers

First published in Shakers Updates

BURY set up a Lancashire FA Senior Cup semi-final at Burnley with an impressive 2-1 victory at Championship neighbours Blackburn Rovers.

First-teamers Richard Hinds and Temitope Obadeyi got the goals in the second half, either side of a Markus Olsson equaliser.

Hinds headed home from a 56th-minute corner, conceded following a misplaced back pass by Olsson.

The Rovers player atoned for his error in the 72nd-minute, firing into the top corner.

But Obadeyi seized on a stoppage-time mistake from midfielder Bryan Dabo to race down on goal and slot home through the fingers of Blackburn keeper Jake Kean.

Bury side: Reice Charles-Cook, Marcus Poscha, Temitope Obadeyi, Richard Hinds, Nathan Cameron, Andy Procter, Matty Cooke, Scott Burgess, Lewis Young, Ashley Grimes, Navid Nasseri. Subs: Jake Cliffe, Sam Dickinson, Joe Brown, Jonathan Barber (GK).
