Last minutes winner as Canfer heads Bury to three points.
Bury Town left it late to grab a goal and the win in a game that was a scrappy affair at times. Bury are still struggling with fire power up front with Ollie Hughes and Josh Mayhew still side-lined through injury Bury ground out this result. Bury took just two minutes to create their first chance. A free kick from Luke Reed played deep to the far post was chested in to the keeperâ€™s arms by the defence. On 6 minutes another Bury free kick this time from Ryan Jolland saw a good block save from the home keeper. Jolland set up Nick Ingram on 17 minutes with the perfect through ball but Ingramâ€™s touch lacked power and the keeper collected the ball. A mistake at the back from Bury found keeper Neil Oâ€™Sullivan out of position on 19 minutes but the resulting strike on the open goal was headed clear by Kyran Clement who read the danger well. Brentwood were starting to settle in to their game and on 32 minutes Sam Owusu put a free kick in to Marcus Milner in the box but Milner fired over the bar. Ingram won the ball in midfield on 33 minutes and went on to set up Reed in the box but again the strike was put over the bar. Milner broke down the wing for Brentwood on 40 minutes and played a great cross in to the box but Brentwood could not get a player on the end of it.
