Match ends, Mansfield Town 0, Bury 1.
Mansfield Town 0-1 Bury
Bury got their League Two promotion push back on track after last weekend's slip-up thanks to Ryan Tafazolli's first-half own goal at Mansfield.
The Shakers, beaten at home by Oxford United a week ago, climb to fifth thanks to Chris Hussey's left-side free-kick across a crowded box creeping inside the far post off Tafazolli.
Bury debutant Tom Eaves had a far-post volley disallowed for offside.
A tight game of few chances was the Stags' first loss in six home matches.
Bury climb back up to fifth, within four points of third-placed Shrewsbury Town, while Mansfield stay 19th, eights points clear of the League Two drop zone.
Mansfield Town manager Adam Murray told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"We didn't apply ourselves like we have done in the previous couple of months and we paid the price for that.
"I don't think it was a case of ability or tactical nous, it was a bottom line of application and today wasn't good enough.
"We should have got something out of it at the end.
"I think we have got to do better with our chance we had at the end, but we did come up against one of the big boys today and that showed."
Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:
"The clean sheet has pleased me and the lads have drawn inspiration from that.
"They're a team that are leading themselves. The values that we put in at the start of the season are coming to fruition.
"We're having a real drive forward to that top-three spot and I was delighted for the lads today."
