Bury manager Richard Barker feels his side were unlucky to come away from MK Dons with no points, despite going down to ten men.
On-loan Liverpool striker David Amoo had calmly rolled the Shakers into the lead at stadium:mk, but they were soon pegged back by Dean Bowditch's header. Giles Coke then saw red for Bury after picking up two yellow cards and Bowditch scored from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time to win the game for the Dons.
"I thought the second half they equipped themselves really well, considering they were down to 10 men," Barker said. "And I thought to be fair, with what we did and the effort they put in the second half, we deserved to get something out of it."
Barker felt that naive decisions had cost Bury the chance to take points back and left them weakened for a long period of the game.
"It's difficult enough to come to a place like this as it is without going down to 10 men after half an hour and then giving silly penalties away."
"It didn't help losing Giles, it was going to be hard enough as it was. I think pulling a shirt 95 yards away from goal, when he wasn't really stopping an opportunity through on goal, I can't remember when that became a yellow card. But all of a sudden 25 seconds before half-time we give a silly penalty away and then you really are up against it."
