Bury 2-2 Mansfield Town

Nicky Maynard's stoppage-time goal earned Bury a point against Mansfield Town.

Maynard slid home his second of the game from 15 yards five minutes into seven of added time at the end.

Mansfield scored a bizarre opening goal after 10 minutes. Danny Rose profited as the ball slipped out of Joe Murphy's grasp when the Bury keeper prepared to make a regulation clearance, and the ex-Bury striker tapped the loose ball into an unguarded net from five yards.

Murphy atoned for his clanger minutes later when he saved superbly from Otis Khan, while Rose should have made it two after half an hour but fired wide from 15 yards.

After the restart, Khan went on a terrific run before curling an exquisite shot inches wide.

Bury then evened the score spectacularly in the 55th minute. Nicky Adams headed the ball hopefully towards Nicky Maynard eight yards from goal, and the Bury striker swivelled superbly before lashing home with a breathtaking scissor kick.

The Stags regained the lead after 73 minutes when defender Matt Preston powerfully headed home Timi Elsnik's corner, but Maynard had the final say.
