‘Don’t hold your hand up for mistakes… do something about it!’ Bury’s Ronnie Jepson furious following poor draw

By Amy Lofthouse

Ronnie Jepson has criticised Bury’s defence following a disappointing 1-1 draw against Wimbledon AFC at The JD Stadium.

The Shakers were in front after 35 minutes after Chris Sedgwick and Danny Hylton combined to loop a header over Wimbledon keeper Ross Warner.

Bury however were unable to capitalise on their early goal, with some poor defensive work from Nathan Cameron allowing Luke Moore to bring the scores level.

The latest draw extended Bury’s winless streak to seven consecutive games, a stat which Jepson is determined to put right.

“I’m a bit disappointed really because we started off badly against a Wimbledon team that are right up there on form,” the manager told the media after the game.

“We got into it, got the goal but then an individual mistake cost us again and I can’t legislate for that.”

“You’d like to think Nathan will hold his hands up to that but then I don’t want people to keep holding their hands up. I want them to do something about it.”

Opposition manager Neal Ardley praised the aggression that Bury showed throughout the game, but that is of little comfort to Jepson as Bury languish at the bottom half of the League Two table.

“Credit to the boys, they kept going and tried to win the game but it wasn’t to be,” Jepson continued.

“It’s a point but we were looking for three. I want to see a reaction from them against Hartlepool on Tuesday. I want to stay positive and go out on Tuesday and get a result.”
