Hill refuses to panic despite defeat

Ryan Lowe's 78th-minute strike gave the Shakers a 1-0 win and moved them into the automatic promotion places in League Two.[LNB]Moments before Lowe netted, former Bury loanee Chris O'Grady missed a golden opportunity to give Dale the lead when he somehow missed the target from six yards out. But Hill refused to point the finger at the striker following his error.[LNB]"Chris will be forgiven and the game will be forgotten," said Hill. "On another day, Chris would have scored and might have got a victory. But we didn't, and we're still top of the league so I don't think anybody should be panicking.[LNB]"Once the game opened up in the second half I thought we played some good football but we didn't really stretch Bury. I can't argue with the result, yet but for an individual mistake, I thought it would have been 0-0.[LNB]"It wasn't just the miss by Chris - I think the challenge could be a lot better by Nathan Stanton for their goal. We had just started to dominate possession but Nathan and Chris have been superb for us this season."[LNB][LNB]
