Bury 2 Bristol Rovers 1
85 - SUB - Gillespie on for Clarke.
81 - SUB - Procter on for Hope.
82 - SUB - Santos on for Parkes.
79 - GOAL - BURY 2 Bristol Rovers 1 - Tom Soares loses his marker to glance home a header from Chris Hussey's corner.
78 - SUB - Soares on for Tutte.
71 - SUB - Rose on for Jones.
67 - Hope's cross is just too deep after the loan striker managed to find some space in the Rovers box.
63 - Smith's appeal for a penalty is turned down after his cross goes behind off Hussey's arm. It was hit hard at him from a yard so there was little the Bury defender could do about it.
Attendance: 2,314 (179 visiting).
59 - Michael Smith flashed a 25-yard shot across goal.
54 - Brown's dragged cross is diverted goalwards by Harold but his effort goes wide of the far post.
Smith pulls back a long ball to the far post but Jensen cuts out his centre.
It looks like Kaid Mohamed is claiming the Rovers equaliser. It seems Clarke's shot hit the striker on the way through a crowded box and the he is claiming it.
45 - SUB - Clucas on for Woodards
45+2 - Jensen pulls out a top-drawer save to deny Harold, diving low to his left to stop the Rovers striker's header on the line.
45+1 - GOAL - Bury 1 BRISTOL ROVERS 1 - Ollie Clarke's shot from the edge of the box is deflected past Jensen into the Bury goal. The Shakers stopper had it covered but was left rooted to the spot as the ball bounced into the far corner.
44 - O'Toole's shot from six yards is blocked by Jensen and Mohamed puts the rebound over. The double chance came from a slip in the box by McNulty.
Brown set-piece sails all the way out.
40 - Lockyer shot is deflected wide for a corner.
29- Powerful run takes Hope to the byline but his pull-back to an unmarked Nardiello is just cut out.
30 - Nardiello fires over a powerful strike from 25 yards.
22 - Mills climbs well but just fails to get over his header from a Hussey corner.
23 - Mohamed shut goes across goal, just wide.
24 - Tutte's 25-year strike whistles past the far post.
19 - Clarke's shot on the turn in the box is blocked by McNulty.
16 - Smith's dangerous ball into the Bury box is cleared behind by McNulty under pressure from Clarke. Jensen punches the resulting corner clear.
12 - Jensen dives at the feat of Harold top deny the Rovers striker after the ball landed to him following a spot of head tennis in the box.
2 - GOAL - BURY 1 Bristol Rovers 0 - Hallam Hope thundered home a half-volley from the right corner of the box after controlling a knockdown on his thigh. It is the Everton loan signing's second debut goal in a week, scoring on his first home start after bagging his first goal in his first match for the Shakers at Northampton on Saturday.
Everton loan striker Hallam Hope retains his place in the starting line-up to make his home debut at the JD Stadium tonight as manager David Flitcroft understandably sticks with the team that won 3-0 at Northampton Town on Saturday.
That victory - the Shakers' first in eight matches - moved them seven points clear of the League Two drop zone.
If Bury make it back-to-back wins in tonight's match in hand over their rivals they will jump up to 12th in the table and open up what would surely be an unassailable gap over the relegation places.
