Bury manager Ryan Lowe has declared himself proud of his improving side after they battled to a 2-2 draw with Bradford City at the Northern Commercials Stadium at Valley Parade.

The Shakers rescued a vital point courtesy of a 95th-minute equaliser from George Miller and Sky Bet League One’s bottom club are now unbeaten in four.

The result sees Bury’s ever-improving form continue and after the match, The Shakers boss Lowe admitted that he was proud of the positive reaction from his players.

“I’m annoyed but in the same breath I’m proud that we can do that” Lowe told The72 after the match.

“The players have been brilliant. There were a couple of mistakes and it’s not the best pitch so we’ve got to play to the conditions.

“To get the equaliser with about 30 seconds of stoppage time left has left me overwhelmed and very proud.”

Bury are nine points adrift of safety but Lowe feels that there is plenty of life left in his side and is not ruling out a great escape just yet.

“The togetherness and the belief is there” Lowe added. “We just need to work on a few more bits and bobs and we will work on that in the next week or so when we get a bit of time.

“We’ve been the best team on the pitch and they’re sixth in the league.

“We’ve got to take some credit, we are going for it and we know we need to win most games.

“That’s eight points from four games, two points a game and if we continue we will be alright.”

The Shakers were backed by 506 travelling supporters and their manager reserved special praise for their loyalty.

Lowe said “It’s nice to see them coming out in their numbers.

“They’re here, they’re with us and we’ve asked them to be our 12th man, back us all the way to the end and they’re going to do that.

“I’m pleased that they’re with us, they’ve seen the fighting spirit in the team and hopefully we can go a long way.”

Bury’s quest for Sky Bet League One survival continues on Tuesday evening when Southend United are the visitors to Gigg Lane.
