Bostik North Brentwood Town 1 Bury Town 1 Bury Town picked up another point on their travels but had to hold on at the end to secure another draw, writes John Alcock.

Bury played well in spells throughout the game especially during the first half.

On 10 minutes Ryan Jolland made some space for himself on the edge of the box but his shot was blocked by two defenders.

Two minutes later Jake Kerins put a good cross in for Cemal Ramadan who put his shot just too high as it went over the bar. On 23 minutes Kojo Apenteng hit a well-placed curling effort on goal, but Luis Tibbles got a hand to it to direct the ball out of play.

Ollie Fenn tried a cheeky chip over the defence on 28 minutes with Ollie Hughes waiting to pounce but more solid defending cleared the danger for Brentwood.

Hughes had an opportunity for Bury two minutes before the break, picking up the ball on the edge of the box and hitting a powerful shot which forced an excellent save from Pellin.

On 54 minutes Bury took the lead. A ball over the defence found Ryley Scott unmarked, and with just the keeper to beat Scott hit a solid strike which was saved, but the rebound fell kindly for Fenn on the follow up.
