Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week. Nicky Maynard’s ninth goal of the season helped gutsy Bury on their way to a deserved home victory against fellow promotion hopefuls Tranmere. Rovers certainly played their part, but James Norwood, in particular, was guilty of missing a number of gilt-edged opportunities. Bury went close early on as defender Chris Stokes nodded inches wide from Nicky Adams’ corner-kick. The hosts threatened again when Maynard forced Rovers’ keeper Scott Davies into a smart diving save.

Rovers should then have gone ahead when Norwood somehow scooped Jake Caprice’s cross over the top from eight yards. In first-half stoppage-time, the visitors fluffed a great double chance as Norwood’s initial shot was saved by Joe Murphy, with Harris firing the rebound over the top from 10 yards.

Bury broke the deadlock soon after the break when Maynard expertly headed home a precise out-swinging free-kick from winger Adams. Norwood ought to have levelled after the hour, but he fired over from five yards after meeting Connor Jennings’ low cross.

The hosts all-but wrapped up their deserved win in stoppage-time when sub Caolan Lavery drilled home from 20 yards.

Rovers sub Ritchie Sutton headed home even deeper into added time, but Bury hung on.

Bury 2 – 1 Tranmere Rovers

Hope you all have a great Christmas and don’t forget, Tranmere play hosts to Morecambe on Boxing Day.

  1. Went to the docs earlier, he diagnosed me with labyrinthitis.

    He goes, “Now Mr Royle, I’m afraid you’ll have to stay off your feet for a while”.

    Jokes on him. Little does he know I only bloody stand up an average of 5 times a year.

  2. I always get a little jealous when I’m buying gifts, so to level it out I treat myself at the same time!! New pair of gym leggings and a new pair of French Connection glasses, small dent in the credit card but at least my eyes will look okay. :glasses:
