Loan watch: Tom Walker sets up goal on Bury return

Midfielder comes on as half-time substitute for Shakers

Tom Walker came on as a half-tine substitute to make his first appearance for Bury since December on Tuesday night.

Travelling to Oxford United, it proved to be a night to forget for the Shakers as they suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat.

Goals from Marvin Johnson, Joe Rothwell and Conor McAleny fired the U's into a convincing first-half lead before Walker joined the action in place of Jermaine Pennant at the interval.

Having seen McAleny score his second shortly after the restart, Walker made an immediate impact as James Vaughan headed home his corner to pull one back for Bury just before the hour-mark.

However, there was to be no late comeback for the Shakers as McAleny completed his hat-trick in stoppage-time to wrap up the scoring for Oxford.
