Knill hails battling Shakers

08 May 2009 - 14:14:35

Bury boss Alan Knill was unconcerned with the manner of his side's 1-0 victory at Shrewsbury Town in Thursday's League Two semi-final first leg clash.

An unfortunate own goal by Neil Ashton separated the two sides and left the Shakers just 90 minutes away from a Wembley final on May 23.

Knill said after the match: "It doesn't matter how you win, it really doesn't matter.

"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 our place but I think we're ready for it."
