A SEVENTH goal of the season from top scorer Anton Forrester was enough to secure Bury all three points in their relegation battle at home to Wycombe Wanderers.

The on-loan Blackburn striker showed a great touch to turn in the box and fire low into the bottom corner to finish off a flowing 34th-minute counter-attack.

Bury dominated possession but both sides struggled to string passes together on a match played on a boggy pitch and in torrential rain.

The difficult conditions ensured chances were at a premium, with Forrester blazing just over before his goal, while Jensen made two good saves in the first half to stop shots from Stuart Lewis and Nick Arnold.

Ashley Grimes hit the side netting early in the first half but Bury, who featured debuts from Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro, Andrew Tutte and substitute Clive Platt – tired in the closing stages and had to battle hard to keep the visitors out.

They stood up well to the Wycombe pressure though, who went closest through Anthony Stewart’s 85th-minute header, which looped on to the roof of the Bury net.

The win saw Bury leapfrog their opponents, as well as Bristol Rovers, moving up two places to 20th in the League Two table.
