Bury missed out on a second victory in a week after they could only manage a draw against Walsall in League One.

Will Grigg bundled in the opener for the Saddlers early on, but Dominic Poleon quickly fired in the equaliser.

Visiting keeper David Grof denied Steven Schumacher and Tom Hopper, while Poleon saw another effort cleared off the line.

Hopper also struck a post, but Walsall held on for a point, though they have not won in seven matches.
