THIS was, as expected, a very tight game with defences generally on top, and clear-cut chances at a premium. But despite the scoreline, it was an exciting game, with the result in doubt up to the final whistle.

The visitors came close to opening the scoring in the 10th minute when Kevin Chakaodza deflected Johnny Moore's shot against the Bury bar. Bury fought back strongly and Sam Reed and Scott Chaplin both went close.

Half chances were created by both sides as play flowed from end to end, but nobody was able to find the final touch. Bury's cause was not helped when they lost striker Liam Barrett with a leg injury after 38 minutes.

Edgware started the second period on top, and Chakaodza shot over when well placed. Bury responded, but substitute Danny Cornwell shot straight at keeper Blackburne when through on goal.
