Town earned a hard fought point with a last minute goal away at Bury on Saturday.

Town started the first half brightly and had two good opportunities to score within the opening five minutes as Aaron Gilpin and Charlie Higgs went close. 

Bury then scored with their first real attack of the game when Tsun Dai won the ball in the midfield. Tsun fed Callum Hulme and Nathan Hughes tucked the ball past Cameron Gregory into the bottom left corner.

Bury dominated the first half in terms of possession and territory and used the windy conditions to their advantage. 

They could have doubled their lead before half time when Cameron Hill was fouled in the box, but Cameron Gregory made a brilliant penalty save to keep out Turner and Town went in 1-0 down at half time.

The second half was a more even affair as both sides created chances but both struggled to find the cutting edge and it looked as it the game would finish 1-0.

However, in stoppage time Town won a corner and ‘keeper Cameron Gregory went up for it and connected with a strong diving header at the back post from Chris Gallagher’s well taken set piece.

The goal meant that Town managed to get a hard fought draw against a very good Bury side and the result leaves Town in sixth place in the EFL Youth Alliance.
