On 22 minutes Bury went close again with a long throw in from Darcy Death finding Read who hit a solid shot which the keeper block saved and the ball fell to Noel Aitkens who fired his shot over the bar.

Bury had more of the game in the second half as Thurrock looked comfortable to sit back more often. A long ball up field from Bury on 56 minutes found Ollie Hughes who went through on goal only to shoot wide of the far post. Thurrock broke forward on 59 minutes went Joe Christou ran into the box to set up Mark Onyemah who shot wide. Bury loanee Regan Pelling showed his skill on 62 minutes beating his marker and pushing down the wing to cross in to Noel Aitkens in the box but the defence broke the move down and cleared up field. Hughes broke down the wing again on 67 minutes for Bury and played in the perfect cross which was begging to be hit but Bury had no one there to make it count. Josh Mayhew came off the bench and tried a low strike from the edge of the box but the keeper made the save. Bury’s best chance of the game came on 75 minutes with Pelling hitting a sweet strike which saw Thurrock keeper Bobby Mason save with a diving save to get a hand to it and put it past the post. Bury never gave up and kept pushing for a goal but with time slipping away Thurrock hit Bury on the break on 90 minutes and got their fourth goal. Thurrock substitute Michael Pindy got on to a long ball and with Neil O’Sullivan rushing out to clear it Pindy went around the stranded keeper and slotted the ball into the empty net. Thurrock take a big three points to keep the pressure on the teams around them at the top of the table and Bury face another tough test as they take on table toppers Maldon & Tiptree in their next game.
