After an uneventful opening 35 minutes, the game sprung into life as first Bury's Parker headed narrowly over the hosts' bar and then Smith shot over when well placed.

The Wingate and Finchley goal had further escapes as both Tatham and Paynter hit the same post with the keeper well beaten.

Bury were to rue these misses as Wingate and Finchley broke away and, with the Bury defence appealing for offside, Williams got clear on the right and crossed for Craig Ellis to score.

Both sides had chances early in the second half and both keepers made good saves.

Bury staged a late onslaught in the final 10 minutes and, but for some great goalkeeping by Ed Thompson, could have at least come home with a point.

Thompson first denied Bugg with a good block from point-blank range and after further sustained Bury pressure, made a world-class save to deny Parker.
