Late pressure from Brentwood pays off
Bury Town picked up another point on their travels but had to hold on at the end to secure another draw at the Brentwood Arena. Bury played well in spells throughout the game especially during the first half. On 10 minutes Ryan Jolland made some space for himself on the edge of the box but his shot was blocked by two defenders. Two minutes later Jake Kerins put a good cross in for Cemal Ramadan who put his shot just to high as it went over the bar. On 23 minutes Kojo Apenteng hit a well-placed curling effort on goal, trying to squeeze the ball past Bury 'keeper Luis Tibbles and inside the post but Tibbles got a hand to it to direct the ball out of play. Ollie Fenn tried a cheeky chip over the defence on 28 minutes with Ollie Hughes waiting to pounce but more solid defending cleared the danger for Brentwood. On 30 minutes a quick break upfield from Bury lead to Ramadan testing James Pellin with a low driven shot to the bottom far corner, Pellin made a one handed save to put the ball around the post. Alfie Hilton got in behind the Bury back line on 34 minutes and was in on goal, from a tight angle Hilton hit the ball into the side netting just the wrong side of the post. Ollie Hughes had an opportunity for Bury two minutes before the break, picking up the ball on the edge of the box Hughes hit a powerful shot which pull an excellent save from Pellin.

Brentwood had the first good chance after the break. A good cross in to the box found Charlee Hughes with space, Hughes low strike from close range was met by the feet on Luis Tibbles who made the block. On 54 minutes Bury took the lead. A ball over the defence found Ryley Scott unmarked, with just the keeper to beat Scott hit a solid strike which was saved but the rebound fell kindly for Ollie Fenn on the follow up and Fenn placed the ball past Pellin to give Bury the advantage. Three quick substitutions for Brentwood freshened things up for the home side and Bury saw less of the ball for the remainder of the game. On 67 minutes Brentwood should have pulled level with Ryan Mallett in space in the box but his scuffed effort was an easy collection for Tibbles. Another good save from Tibbles denied Charlee Hughes on 75 minutes. Bury were looking tired during the last 15 minutes and started to sit back. Brentwood never stopped pressing forward and got their reward on 86 minutes with a great low shot from Albert Levett which went under Tibbles outstretched hand an in to the bottom corner. Bury were holding on as the game came to an end but the Blues saw game out to take another point.
