Bury 2-2 Notts County

Two spot-kicks from Jeff Hughes helped Notts County to a draw at Bury.

Andy Bishop opened the scoring for Bury, rifling home a first-time strike from 18 yards out, before Shaun Harrad side-footed wide for the home side.

The Magpies equalised when Steve Schumacher tripped Lee Hughes in the box, allowing Jeff Hughes to slam home.

Bury got a penalty, converted by Giles Coke, after Mike Edwards' handball, before Efe Sodje handled and Jeff Hughes equalised from the spot.


Bury manager Richie Barker told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I thought every one of them individually was excellent and collectively they did everything asked.

"There's not been a penalty in any of our games this season, then three come at once, and if I'm honest I didn't see any of them.

"The players should take confidence from the performance."

Notts County manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"I wasn't very happy at half-time and I asked for more.

"The basics of winning headers, knockdowns and quicker, sharp passing - we were second a little bit too much in my opinion.

"In the second we picked it up and shifted it. We changed it tactically, shifted our style and the players picked it up and we could have won it in the end."
