Red-face start for Bart.

Peterborough's pounds 25,000 new Dutch keeper Bart Griemink had a red face after this bizarre game.

But his embarrassment at gifting Bury the opening goal was overshadowed by the red card handed to the visitors' winning striker David Johnson.

The 20-year-old went over the top with his crazy celebrations after his first goal of the season put Shakers 2-1 up.

The lightening-quick forward, who played for Manchester United last season, couldn't control his joy.

He danced wildly in front of the home fans behind the goal and was warned by fussy referee Steve Bennett.

But Johnson took no notice and ran half the length of the field gesticulating to the home fans.

Yet manager Stan Ternent said: "What's the game coming to? That's what we've worked for all week. He was just celebrating scoring a great goal."

Skipper David Pugh added: "He's just a young lad, but he'll have to learn. He took a bit of stick from the home fans for his pineapple haircut, but that's something you have to learn to live with."

Griemink went crimson after letting a harmless long ball skid through his legs to present Matthews with the opener.

But Posh hit back when Heald equalised from a free kick and they had three goalbound efforts kicked or headed off the line.

Disappointed boss Barry Fry groaned: "We dominated from start to finish. They had a lot of luck and our keeper made an absolutely unbelievable mistake."

As for referee Bennett, who also sent off Farrell two minutes from time, Fry added: "There's a lot I'd love to say but I do want to stay in football!"
