Brewers character pleases Rowett

25 August 2013

Burton boss Gary Rowett saluted his comeback kids as Albion rescued a point in a 2-2 draw with Bury.

Michael Symes and Adam McGurk scored in the last seven minutes after the hosts had fallen behind to goals from Anton Forrester and William Edjenguele.

"What we've done so far this season is to show that whatever happens in a game, we're capable of handling it,`` said Rowett.

"I felt it was going to be one of those games where we might find ourselves down a little bit - and I have to say that I thought Bury were excellent.

"That's the second time we've come from two goals down to get a point already this season and it's important we keep doing that when things don't necessarily go your way.

"The pivotal moment for me was the players who came on, including Michael Symes who was really lively, won his headers and got us a goal when we needed it."

Bury boss Kevin Blackwell was mostly pleased with what he saw despite his side surrendering two points.

He said: "I thought our first-half performance was as good as any I've seen from a team at this level for a long time.I thought we looked a real class outfit and created some good chances.

"We knew they'd throw the kitchen sink at us in the second half and I think that maybe we should have dealt with the balls into our box a little bit better. Other than that, I'm pleased with the boys.

"We were 2-0 up and thoroughly deserved it and maybe should have gone on and killed the game, but we're an effective outfit, a strong unit, and I'm more than happy with what I've seen."
