Scunthorpe United 2-2 Bury

Paddy Madden

Scunthorpe United went top of the League Two table despite Danny Rose netting an injury-time equaliser for Bury.

Scunthorpe broke the deadlock when Paddy Madden poked the ball home before Tom Soares nodded a leveller for Bury.

The hosts were ahead again when Terry Hawkridge was felled by Danny Mayor and Paul Hayes scored his rebounded penalty.

Rose then popped up in stoppage time to curl in an equaliser from distance.

The result means that Scunthorpe go top of the table after Rochdale slipped to defeat at Mansfield. Bury are 11th.

Scunthorpe boss Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio Humberside:

Post-match: Scunthorpe boss Wilcox

"I thought we were absolutely outstanding second-half. I'm disappointed obviously not to see the game out but you've got to give Bury credit.

"Results have gone our way though. We have gone top of the league so no moans and groans about that.

"I just want to talk about the positivity and credit to the group again.

"We're at home and there's a lot of pressure on the players. We've got some young players out there and I thought they handled the situation well."

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

Post-match: Bury manager Flitcroft

"We were outstanding in every aspect of our play. The defending was top drawer.

"We never give up, It's something instilled in this group, instilled in this club and they've done me proud as the manager of Bury tonight with that performance.

"The lads deserved to come away from here unbeaten. We came here and dominated the pitch in a lot of good areas against a top side. To go toe-to-toe with them makes me proud."
