Performance of the Week

7 February 2013

Home win against Doncaster earns Bury the F&C Investments performance of the week

The League Managers Association five-man Performance of the Week panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, were in agreement that this week, the F&C Investments Performance of the Week Award should go to Bury following their excellent 2-0 home win against Doncaster Rovers in npower League One on Saturday 2 February 2013.  

Bury manager Kevin Blackwell will receive a specially engraved crystal football in a presentation to commemorate the award.

The Shakers won their first F&C Investments Performance of the Week Award of the season, with a vital victory at Gigg Lane.

Andy Bishop and Nicky Ajose were the match winners against high-flying Doncaster who remain in the automatic promotion places in npower League One.

After the match, Blackwell was full of praise for his players;
"Doncaster are second in the table so we knew it was going to be tough.
"Slowly, we're trying to piece a team together. Until we came out of the transfer embargo, we couldn't really change it around.
"The lads, up to that point, have given us everything. We're a much harder team to beat than we were and we've just got to keep going."
