H/T: Colchester United 0 Bury 0
45 – Bury somehow manage to clear their lines after Matthew Rose’s low cross from the left flashes across the six yard line.
A quick free kick then sees Worrall set free on the right, but Hopper is unable to turn his low ball in at the near post.
40 – David Worrall manages to play a ball from the floor into Zac Thompson’s path, but the Bury midfielder’s shot is easy for Sullivan.
38 – First serious Bury shot of the match is pushed around the post by Colchester keeper John Sullivan. Dominic Poleon had the effort, cutting in from the left before driving low to Sullivan’s near post from 25 yards.
34 – Carson comfortably handles a Sears shot.
32 – Great sliding challenge from Matt Doherty to deny Freddie Sears.
29 – Trevor Carson palms a Henderson volley behind for a corner, then gets down well to smother Craig Eastmond’s shot from the resulting corner.
Two good chances early doors for Colchester, with widemen Freddie Sears and Ian Henderson going close.
Kevin Blackwell looks to have tried to match up Colchester’s 4-5-1 formation, playing new boy Tom Soares alongside Steven Schumacher and Zac Thompson in a midfield three.
It’s the home side though that are getting on the ball in the middle of the park and getting in behind Bury with pacey runs from deep.
