Bury 0-0 Oldham

Bury finished off their home campaign with a lively draw against Oldham.

Shaun Harrad missed a sitter for the hosts early on, miskicking in front of an open goal after David Worrall's cross into the box.

Visiting keeper Dean Bouzanis sprung into action to deny Giles Coke before Bury survived two penalty shouts, both involving Efe Sodje.

Oldham almost came undone but Steve Schumacher and Lenell John-Lewis both saw their efforts go wide.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bury manager Richie Barker told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I thought we did enough to be in front at half time, but in the second half it was a typical end of season game between two mid-table teams.

"The pitch didn't help. It's difficult at this time of year. We wanted to try and play but the pitch didn't really help us.

"To be sat in 12th position with a game to go, they've done absolutely fantastic."

Oldham manager Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Manchester:

"Bury have been on a good run of late and I think, in the first half, we stood off them too much.

"In the second half, we played some decent football and got in some decent positions, but we didn't have enough quality with our final ball.

"We kept a clean sheet and we had a lot of young kids out there, so it looks good for the future."
