Bury Town 4 Aveley 1

Fielding an unchanged side for the third consecutive match, Bury completed a convincing victory over a lively Aveley side containing several new signings. This is Bury`s third win on the trot, and means they have now consolidated their position in the top four.

The visitors started brightly, and could have taken an early lead, when Gasper outpaced the Bury defence only to shoot wide with only Greygoose to beat. They continued to have the bulk of the possesion, but were unable to to press home their advantage. Bury fought back and had the ball in the net through Stuart Walker, only to be denied by the linesman`s flag. Lee Smith then headed over when well placed. At the other end Craig Johnston was unlucky to see a a great 30 yard effort rebound from the bar with Greygoose beaten. The same player then had another effort well saved by the keeper.

The deadlock was broken in the 38th minute, when from Lee Smith`s pinpoint cross, Sam Reed was on hand to head past Worster to give Bury the lead. Further chances came and went as Bury continued to push forward.

Further Bury pressure led to their fourth on 63 minutes when Danny Cornwell scored with what is becoming a trademark volley from outside the box. Two minutes later Aveley reduced the deficit with a precision free kick from 25 yards by Shaz Ahmed which gave Greygoose no chance.
