ACCRINGTON Stanley slipped to the bottom of the League Two table after defeat at 10-man Bury this afternoon.

Stanley went ahead in the 19th minute at Gigg Lane as Kal Naismith netted a fine solo goal against the club who recently had a bid rejected for the Scot.

But Bury levelled through Danny Rose 10 minutes before half time and Naismith was denied by the crossbar as he attempted to put Stanley back in front.

Danny Mayor then put the hosts in front in the 62nd minute with a superb strike from 30 yards past on-loan QPR keeper Joe Lumley, making his Reds debut.

Bury lost Jim McNulty to a second yellow card 20 minutes from time but Stanley could not find an equaliser.

The Reds have collected only one point from their opening five league matches.

Stanley: Joe Lumley, Adam Buxton, Rob Atkinson, Tom Aldred, Jordan Mustoe, Will Hatfield (Shay McCartan 74), Nicky Hunt (Josh Windass 72), Luke Joyce, Piero Mingoia (Marcus Carver 90), Kal Naismith, James Gray. Subs not used Jay Lynch, Dean Winnard, Max Hazeldine, George Bowerman.

The club is a embarassment,and I do not refer to the playing side or James Beatie,we have sky bet buying boots for the team,it does appears the Chairman is the only person putting money into the club,so what are the others Directors doing?.there are people who have been at the club for a long time,I do not mean on the playing side,they should leave?,give James Beatie a chance to work with good people behind the scenes ,he promoted players from the youth team,how can he play them,he cant put young players under pressure,given the chance James will do a good chance,the players are ok,the club needs to be revampted of the field.

It was a pretty even match. The result could have gone either way. Naismith scored a good goal but didn't get much change in the second half. Adam Buxton looked a bit vulnerable at the back and that's where Bury's second goal came from. But Stanley certainly didn't look like a club at the bottom. Better results will come.

You' right Mike, Stanley are skint and continually punch above their weight but the embarassment is that Man U can spend nearly 60 million quid on ONE player whilst the smaller clubs beg and borrow. It's not clubs like Stanley that are an embarassment, its the whole set up of football in this country and the Premier League in particular

You are spot on,I had this arguement many years ago with the FA,each division should have been capped on the amount of money a club could offer of a player and a transfer fee,and the amount dropping by each division,we would then produced more of own players,and more youngsters would have been introduced in to a team,all sky money should be shared equally among all 4 divisions,clubs would then have had more money to make ground improvements especially in the lower divisions,and now expect one or 2 people to put money into clubs,and could compete with teams in there divisions,we might see better Managing and coaching skills in the game then
