Knill - A win is a win

Published Add your comment

Bury boss Alan Knill insists he is not concerned by the manner of his side's victory over Shrewsbury after their 1-0 play-off semi-final first-leg win.

The Shakers were outplayed for much of the game at the ProStar Stadium, with the hosts spurning several chances to open the scoring, before Shrews left-back Neil Ashton inexplicably lofted the ball into his own net to give Bury the advantage going into Sunday's second leg.

"It doesn't matter how you win, it really doesn't matter," Knill said.

"If you work really hard then you get your rewards and I don't think anybody can say we didn't put in a shift. And we got our reward, a win, which is fantastic.

"For us to win in a play-off semi-final here is a fantastic achievement for us. Nobody expected us to win here except us.

"It's going to be another really tough game at ours but I think we're ready for it."
