Maidstone took the lead in the 16th minute.

Bury failed to clear a corner from Austin and Stouts was on hand to get the final touch to Royston's goal-bound header.

Maidstone doubled their lead in the 40th minute with an almost identical goal to their opener.

Once again a left-wing corner by Austin was not cleared and this time it was Shearer who nodded in.

Bury had the greater share of possession for the rest of the game, but Town were unable to break down a resolute Maidstone defence.

Shots from Wood, Cunningham and Bugg all flew harmlessly over the bar and though Bury tried hard to reduce the deficit, Maidstone held on to their lead comfortably.
