Bury's Giles Coke apologises for Steven Schumacher penalty row
Bury's Giles Coke has issued an apology following the row with captain Steven Schumacher over who should take a penalty in the 3-2 win over Yeovil.
In a statement
the midfielder said: "I have since apologised privately to the team, the captain, and the manager.
"When playing my emotions run high, and in my mind following being brought down, all I could think of was getting the ball and making it 3-1."
The incident saw both players booked and Schumacher score the penalty.
Coke's statement added: "I make no apology for wanting to win, however I am also a professional footballer and fully appreciate the need to respect the captain and manager, even when emotions are running high."
Schumacher said he was "disappointed" by team-mate Coke when the pair were embroiled in a physical confrontation.
Bury were leading 2-1 in the League One match at Gigg Lane when referee Mark Heywood pointed to the penalty spot.
