FA Cup Preliminary Round: BURY Town edged through to the next round after coming from behind to secure a narrow victory.

Bury did have the best of the opportunities when Sam Reed had a good low drive well saved by the home keeper.

Deeping took what was probably a deserved lead with five minutes of the half remaining.
