The first half was largely uneventful, and although Enfield had the major share of the play, neither side were able to seriously trouble the keepers. Enfield did have one effort disallowed and put in numerous high crosses which caused the Bury defence some problems.

Bury started the second half more brightly, but their final ball often lacked accuracy.

Enfield doubled their lead after 76 minutes when Crace rose above a static Bury defence to head home a free-kick from the right.

Bury brought on all three substitutes in an effort to reduce the arrears, but were unable to create a clear-cut chance.
