Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter plays 90 minutes as Bury fall to defeat

On-loan Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter played the full game but couldn’t prevent his Bury side falling to a late 3-2 defeat against 10 men Carlisle.
Bury had taken the lead through Chris Stokes after Jamie Devitt had scored for Carlisle in the opening minute. It was Stokes who equalised before his second looked to have given Bury the advantage.

It’s an advantage that was strengthened by a red card for Carlisle’s Mike Jones just before halftime.
But Callum O’Hare equalised five minutes into the second half before a late Hallam Hope winner broke Bury hearts. It is Bury’s third defeat on the trot.

And it puts a dent in the Greater Manchester side’s promotion hopes.

The defeat leaves Bury fourth as they vie for position in a tense League Two promotion race.
Four points separate 2nd to 5th with only the top three sides guaranteed automatic promotion. Jordan Rossiter has been a key component of the side since joining Bury on deadline day.

The youngster made the move to ensure much-needed game time and started off brightly. The Rangers midfielder even won two Man of the Match awards on the bounce.
But off-the-field issues have impacted both his and his Bury teammate’s form.
Jordan Rossiter was caught in the middle as financial problems have rocked the club.
And if the club can’t turn it around quickly Rossiter could be returning to Rangers disappointed. It’d be a superb bonus for the player if he can play a pivotal role in the club’s promotion up the divisions.
