After a bright start, Bury made hard work of this tie against their hard working opponents, and they didn`t make the game safe till well into stoppage time.

Bury got off to a dream start when after only four minutes Deeping failed to deal with a cross from Lee Smith, and Stuart Walker was on hand to hit a deflected shot past Bircham.

Deeping then settled down, and chances were created at both ends, the best of these falling to the visitors. Dean Greygoose in the Bury goal, was the busier keeper, and was called upon to make some smart saves.

Bury's best effort came when Sam Reed shot narrowly wide from a twenty five yard free kick.

Defences were generally on top in the second half, with neither side able to create many clear cut chances. Deeping continued to have more of the play as Bury appeared to be content to sit back and play on the break. They did however come closest to scoring when both substitute Gavin Johnson and Danny Cornwell went close.

Deeping continued to press forward but were unable to find the finishing touch. Bury settled the tie in the third minute of stoppage time when substitute Steve Bugg got clear of the Deeping defence and shot across Bircham into the far corner of the net to send them into the hat for the lucrative next round.
