Preston win after Bury's fifth spot-kick, from Gregg Wylde is saved and Graham Cummins buries the decisive penalty.
92 - GOAL - BURY 3 Preston 3 - Steven Schumacher fires in an amazing curling free-kick from 30 yards
91 - Craig Jones on for David Worrall
90 - GOAL - Bury 2 PRESTON 3 - Stuart Beavon taps in after Carson spills a looping David Amoo shot
88 – Sub – David Amoo on for Lee Holmes
84 - GOAL - BURY 2 Preston 2 - Shakers' on-loan full-back Matt Doherty levels the tie with a goal out of nothing, firing a low shot past Stuckman from the byline.
86 - OFF - Preston's Shane Cansdell-Sherriff is shown his second yellow for a professional foul.
74 - Lenell John-Lewis and Troy Hewitt on for Tom Hopper and David Healy
69 - GOAL - Bury 1 PRESTON 2 - Andy Procter curls a precise effort into the bottom corner after Carson comes out for a cross and fails to get enough on his punch. Substitute Lee Holmes laid the ball into his path and the centre-midfielder kept his head to finish while Carson lay prostrate in the middle of the box. Bury manager Kevin Blackwell had plenty to say to the fourth official, claiming a clear foul on his keeper.
67 - Carson gets down low to his left to palm away a strong Graham Cummins header.
64 - BOOKED - Procter goes into the book for a wild lunge on Gregg Wylde.
62 - GOAL - BURY 1 Preston 1 - Joe Skarz puts Bury back into the tie, running ahead of his marker to glance Steven Schumacher's inswinging corner across goal and in at the far post.
60 - Hopper is put through but Stuckman comes out to block his chipped shot on the edge of the Preston box.
59 - Doherty fires a very optimistic shot well over from 30 yards.
55 – Beavon then almost rubs salt in the wounds at the other end, firing a shot over on the turn from just outside the box.
54 - Referee Gary Sutton waves away strong claims against Beavon for handball in the Preston box.
52 - BOOKED - Shane Candsell-Smith given a yellow to a trip on Worrall as he sprinted past him towards the byline on the right.
49 - Andy Procter's looping volley is easy for Carson
K/O: Preston kick off the second half with no changes for either side...
44 – Healy volleys straight at Stuckman, who does well to hold on to the reflex shot from the Northern Ireland striker from midway inside the box.
45 – Carson has to dive full-stretch to palm a fierce Byrom shot around his near post.
45 – Sub – Lee Holmes on for Jeffrey Monakana
47 - Schumacher just fails to turn a Doherty cross on target, with his scuffed effort spinning wide from eight yards out.
41 - BOOKED - Hughes picks up a yellow card for a blatant professional foul on Beavon after a poor pass from Schumacher put his team-mates in trouble.
35 – Thorsten Stuckman stays tall in the Preston goal to block out a driven effort by Matt Doherty at his near post. The chance followed good work by David Healy and Worrall on the right, who fed an intelligent short pass into Doherty’s run into the box, but the right-back could not finish from a tight angle.
25 - GOAL - Bury 0 PRESTON 1 - Trevor Carson just fails to keep out Jack King's shot from a Joe Byrom corner. The Bury defence were caught napping as King made a late run into the box and was completely unmaked when he struck Byrom's rolled set-piece goalward.
18 - Tom Hopper and Efe Sodje both fling themselves at a low ball whipped in by Steven Schumacher that evaded everyone as it swung across the Preston six-yard box.
That doesn't count a poor free-kick from Gregg Wylde who wasted a chance from the right, sending an inswinging effort high and wide when a host of Bury players were waiting in the box for a cross.
15 - First shot of any note for either side is curled well-wide by Preston midfielder John Mousinho.
David Healy couldn't have timed his return from injury better. Missing for eight games, only to enjoy a less than polite welcome from the Preston fans on his return.
oh how he would love a goal or two tonight!
1 - Straight from the whistle, Tom Hopper storms down the left and swings in a decent cross that David Worrall swings at and fluffs twice.
K/O: Bury get the tie underway...
BURY: Carson; Doherty, Sodje, Hughes, Skarz; Worrall, Schumacher, Thompson, Wylde; Healy, Hopper.
Subs: C Jones, John-Lewis, Hewitt, A Jones, Soares.
PRESTON: Stuckman; King, Foster, Wright, Candsell-Sherriff; Mousinho, Procter, Byrom, Monakana; Beavon, Cummins.
Subs: Simonsen, Amoo, Holmes, Welsh, Elding.
Kevin Blackwell makes two changes to the starting line-up from Saturday's defeat at Crewe.
Ethan Ebanks-Landell is left out of the squad altogether, while Troy Hewitt drops to the bench.
Bolton Wanderers winger Gregg Wylde returns as Blackwell switches back to a 4-4-2 system, and striker David Healy gets a rare start against his former club.
One other point of note, Bury go into the game with only five on the bench - Cameron Belford is one of the notable absentees, meaning the Shakers start without a substitute keeper.
