Preston stretched their winless league run to seven games after playing out a goalless draw with Bury.

North End came close to opening the scoring early on, but Will Hayhurst's low strike was blocked by a defender.

The hosts felt they could have had a penalty on the half hour, but the referee waved play on after Chris Beardsley tangled with Efe Sodje.

The Shakers almost struck in the second half, but Thorsten Stuckmann saved Zac Thompson's effort to keep it level.

Meanwhile Bolton Wanderers winger Gregg Wylde, 21, has extended his loan spell with Bury for another month.
