Bishop sinks Oldham

Top scorer Andy Bishop struck both goals for Bury as they beat 10-man Oldham 2-0 at Boundary Park.

Oldham had keeper Alex Cisak sent off after just 10 minutes when he was shown a straight red card for bringing down Bishop as the striker burst clear on goal.

Cisak was replaced by 38-year-old goalkeeping coach Paul Gerrard, who dived to his left and saved the weak resulting penalty from Bishop.

But Bury went in front after 22 minutes, Bishop stealing in at the near post to volley home a Lennell John-Lewis cross from six yards.

Oldham's Shefki Kuqi wasted a clear chance before Bishop struck again on the half-hour with a close-range header from Steven Schumacher's corner.

Bury came under fierce pressure after half-time, but Kuqi missed two more openings and was also denied by Cameron Belford's fine save.

Oldham's Chris Taylor had an effort cleared off the line and Matt Smith hit the woodwork from 25 yards.

Bury also ended the game with 10 men after John-Lewis received his second yellow card deep inside injury time.
