Bury recorded their fifth victory in six games thanks to Ryan Tafazolli’s own goal, a win that moves the club four points off automatic promotion.
Bury manager David Flitcroft is optimistic about bouncing back this weekend against Mansfield Town, especially as his team – at one stage without a decent training setup which he feared would plague them – have taken to their new facility.
Callum O’Dowda’s goal five minutes from time was enough to end the Shakers’ four-match winning run and they also lost Adam El-Abd to two bookable offences.
