Match report | Preview
Two second half goals see Honours even in the local derby

The first half started slowly as both side cancelled each other out. Clear cut chances were rare for most of the half. On 14 minutes Ollie Hughes went on a run down the wing for Bury and put a good cross in to the box that fizzed past Noel Aitkens who was running in. Tommy Robinson dribbled the ball in to a good area on the edge of the box on 22 minutes but the Bury man hit his shot high over the bar. On 27 minutes a Sudbury corner was headed goalward by Billy Holland, but a defection sent the ball a whisker past the post. A cracking free kick from Ramadan on 36 minutes went agonizingly close as it flew an inch wide of the post. On 40 minutes Holland again had a headed chance, climbing high to head but the ball spun up and went high over the bar.

Half Time: Bury Town 0 AFC Sudbury 0

Second half felt more like the derby games we are used to seeing. Both side went for it. On 48 minutes a solid strike from Sudburys Ollie Peters went close to the bar. On 50 minutes returning loanee Jack Lankester broke in to the box but shot high. Sudbury were awarded a penalty on 62 minutes, Luis Tibbles was judged to have Callum Harrison. Harrison stepped up the take it and hit a thumping penalty kick which was met by a flying save from Tibbles who showed incredible reaction speed. On 67 minutes Lankester broke forward and put a good cross in to Ramadan who was sliding in but could not make contact. On 70 minutes Bury made the break through with a polished attack. Lankester went down the wing, put a perfect pass in to the box for Ramadan to volley home from close range. Sudbury were not done and looked dangerous on the attack and a mistake at the back from Bury on 86 minutes saw the ball played in to Philip Kelly who netted the equaliser for the visitors. Another draw for Bury but a draw was a fair result all round.
