BURY finished their League One season with a 2-2 comeback draw against AFC Wimbledon.

The Shakers’ three-year stay in League One looked like it was ending with a whimper as Dean Parrett and Kwesi Appiah put the south London side 2-0 up within 34 minutes.

After goals from captain Neil Danns and George Miller levelled the tie with five minutes to go, Bury could have claimed only their second away league win of the season with their chances in stoppage time.

Dons midfielder Parrett put the hosts in front with a superb half-volley after Barry Fuller’s long throw fell to him fortuitously at the back post. Appiah doubled their advantage, firing past the luckless Joe Murphy after hesitation in the Shakers’ backline.

The game was soured by injuries to Dons’ highly-rated leading scorer Lyle Taylor and 18-year-old Bury defender Ryan Cooney, who were both stretchered off after lengthy delays. Lowe confirmed post-match that Cooney had fractured his cheekbone.

Captain Danns brought Bury back into the game on 66 minutes, curling into the top corner after Dons goalkeeper George Long had come off his line to parry O’Shea’s deep cross.

The Shakers earned a final day point courtesy of Miller, who met O’Shea’s delivery to head home late on.

And they almost completed the most unlikely of comeback victories in the 89th minute, as Miller met Ismail’s drilled cross into the box, only to fire over the bar.
