BURY Town slipped to their second consecutive league defeat against a strong Nuneaton side.
Bury started well and had early chances to take the lead, however, Nuneaton started to take the upper hand as the half progressed and, after a period of sustained pressure, they took the lead.
Bury failed to clear their lines and the ball fell to Jamie Williams who let fly from outside the box to beat Marcus Garnham.
The Suffolk side then had a header disallowed for an alleged push on the keeper, but it was the home side who finished the half on top with Garnham making a fine double save and Brown hitting the Bury bar.

After Justin Marsden had gone close in the opening minute of the second period, the same player doubled the lead three minutes later following a defensive mix up.
Bury were given some hope on 59 minutes when Lee Reed headed home at the far post, but it was short lived as Nuneaton restored their two goal advantage three minutes later when a fine move ended with Mark Noon scoring from close range.
A Bury triple substitution made little difference as the home side continued to pressure the visitors' defence and they completed the scoring after 75 minutes with a fine solo goal by Rob Foster who left four Bury defenders in his wake before slotting past Garnham.
