0-0

A no score draw might not usually be the cause for much celebration in football circles but Bury’s nil – nil draw away at Fleetwood Town on Boxing Day brought to an end a dismal losing run stretching back 12 matches. A club record of defeats that has seen The Shakers drop from the edge of the automatic promotion places to the edge of the relegation places. So, gaining a point at last away from home and keeping a clean sheet will have been a late Christmas present for Bury fans. Let us hope the result will give the team some confidence as they move into the second half of the season.
