Cherries: Penalty mystery in Gigg Lane draw

REFEREE Carl Boyeson took centre stage as Cherries battled out an incident-packed 2-2 draw at Gigg Lane today.

The Hull-based official awarded Cherries a second-half penalty for handball – and then promptly changed his mind after consulting his assistant.

Boyeson took an age to point to the spot after two Bury defenders had climbed at the far post to meet a cross from Simon Francis.

However, following a chat with his assistant, who was on the opposite side of the pitch, Boyeson instead awarded a corner.

Cherries twice came from behind to earn a share of the spoils, with goals from Lewis Grabban and Brett Pitman cancelling out efforts from Troy Hewitt and David Worrall.

Boss Howe made one change to the Cherries starting line-up with Matt Tubbs drafted in for Lee Barnard, the Southampton loan striker dropping to the bench.

New loan signing Pitman was also named among the Cherries substitutes following his midweek move from Bristol City.

Simon Francis carved out the first shooting chance for the visitors following a run down the right but Lewis Grabban’s saw his effort blocked.

Hewitt volleyed the Shakers into a 14th-minute lead when he arrived to meet Matt Doherty’s inch-perfect cross at the near post.

David James raced off his line to beat Hewitt to a through ball before Josh McQuoid’s penalty appeal fell on deaf ears after he had gone to ground under an Ethan Ebanks-Landell challenge.

James pulled off a top-drawer save to turn a Peter Sweeney free-kick around the post before Doherty lifted a shot over the crossbar from the resultant corner.

Cherries had an escape after 39 minutes when roving full-back Doherty saw his thumping goalbound header blocked on the line.

Grabban had an early second-half chance saved by Carson before referee Boyeson staggered Cherries and their followers by changing his mind over the penalty decision.

However, Howe’s men stuck to their task and levelled in the 59th minute when Grabban netted his seventh goal of the season, the striker sweeping home a low cross from Daniels.

Miles Addison’s header from a Pugh corner was hacked off the line before Tubbs’s strike at the near post was blocked by a defender.

Bury regained the lead when Worrall nipped in ahead of James to score after his initial effort had been charged down by MacDonald.

However, Pitman had the final say when he bagged an equaliser, the striker curling the ball past Carson after he had robbed Ebanks-Landell.

Cherries: James, Francis, Addison, Elphick, Daniels, McQuoid (McDermott, 82), MacDonald, Arter (O’Kane, 86), Pugh, Tubbs (Pitman, 73), Grabban.

Unused subs: Fogden, Barnard, Cook, Jalal (g/k).

Yet another indifferent first half display, but much better in the second half. A point was probably a fair result but if our finishing had been better we would have won comfortably.
Well done to the management and team for keeping the unbeaten run going and you just knew Brett would score when he came on! Onwards and upwards!

The report makes it sound like you had bad luck today. Looking at the fixtures for DECEMBER , i think you will pick up points in all the games. This should put you in the top six by Christmas which would make a very enjoyable festive period. Keep the Faith and win your cup game next week.

Whilst true we have missed lots of chances, we are giving say too many goals still. Given Bury's form though think this was a good point and the last gasp equaliser will keep the confidence going

A good point against an in form team. The commentators seemed to imply that James was responsible for Worrall's goal, what do those who were at the game think? Good that Brett got a goal, shews that his instincts are still there, Eddie was saying this morning that Brett wont be match fit until Christmas and has him doing "high intentensity " training, can't wait to see him then.
Just one "moan" why can't Harry learn to keep his mouth shut!

It looked like he was at fault SOC altho we were at the far end. He seemed to come for the ball, not get there, the Bury player went wide and finished from what I would think was quite a tight angle.

Their first goal was their first real attack, we'd looked pretty comfortable until then. For the rest of the half they were the better team and pressed hard to stop us playing.

2nd half much better, We played with more pace and much more penetration. Penalty decision was weird so felt like justice had been done when we scored. We hit the post and had a goal line clearance before they scored pretty much out of the blue.

Brett's goal came from a defensive mix up but he showed what a good finisher he is. Pugh then hit the bar in the dying minutes - how sweet would that have been!

WHAT!! and end up being the catalyst to turning your season around if you were to beat us in round 3, no thank you LOL... We need to play for more than the last 45 minutes. Bit by bit Eddie is sorting the squad out and Brett can make his own goals out of nothing, which is an added bonus. I don't fear any team in this league, but we won't have it all our own way, far from it...

Great to see Pitman starting his second term with us the same way he finished his first term. Good for his confidence and good for the team. I have been very critical about Arter but to be fair, he's playing his best football ever and if he could keep his big trap shut, he could improve further. Sounds like the ref was wearing Bury underpants! But we still got a draw despite him not knowing the rules of the game!! Up the Cherries!!!

Me too, I really enjoy watching Harry, from the first time I saw him play I have been defending him to all the moaners that have liked to make him the scapegoat when the whole team have not played well, he is now playing in a good team that lets him play the way that gets the most out of him, loads of credit to Shaun McDonald cos its obviously not in his natural game to sit back as much as he is, a really good partnership since Eddie & Jason have come back when we were really struggling in the middle of the pitch. But please Harry shut up!!!!

I don't know having just watched the football league show. The robotic donkey blocks the shot then stops. The fwd runs on and beats James to the ball. If anyone needs to be replaced its Addison for Cooky . Then I think we'll see clean sheets. A fair point though in the end. 1 Away 3 at home every other week and we'll go up. Pitman=natural finisher.

Just shows what four loanees can do to improve results.

So on that basis, although we should have won, a draw was a good result.
