Lowe: Two late strikes

Lowe: Two late strikes

Ryan Lowe struck twice in the final 15 minutes to sink Coventry 3-1 at Gigg Lane and send Bury into the Carling Cup second round.

The Sky Blues led in the 26th minute when David Bell crossed from the right flank and Roy O'Donovan headed home from six yards.

Bury lost midfielder Steven Schumacher to injury in the 31st minute but they were level seven minutes later when Andy Bishop latched onto a pass from Lowe and fired home right-footed from six yards.

O'Donovan almost grabbed his second in the 43rd minute when he tried his luck from distance and saw his effort well saved from Cameron Belford.

Bury began the second with aggression and purpose and almost led six minutes after the restart.

Mike Jones saw his 25-yard shot tipped over by Joe Murphy and then Bishop headed wastefully wide from just six yards out.

However, marksman Lowe put the Shakers ahead in the 75th minute when he rifled home Damien Mozika's pass and then added his second in the 88th minute when he again combined with Mozika to drill home from close range.
