When Harry Bunn, a late substitute for Bury, ran on to a long ball and placed a shot under Oxford United goalkeeper Simon Eastwood to secure a 2-1 win for the visitors, Pep Clotet’s reign as Oxford manager was over.

He may not have known it, but it was the catalyst for change by the Oxford hierarchy.  What if Bunn hadn’t of replaced Zeli Ismail in the 75th minute?  Well the dynamics would have been different.  Sure.  But this isn’t Sliding Doors, Clotet isn’t John Hannah, and what happened, unfortunately for Clotet, happened.

Twitter reaction was measured for the most part and sympathetic.

As is often the case though, there were those with limited sympathy for the Spaniard.
