BURY'S improvement under caretaker manager Ryan Lowe continued with dramatic draw at Valley Parade.

The Shakers looked like they were going to suffer heartbreak when Bradford scored a minute from the end of normal time to take a 2-1 lead.

But the Shakers have been made of sterner stuff since Lowe took over, and George Miller clinched a point with an equaliser in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

The Gigg Lane men are still nine points from safety at the bottom of the table, but with two wins and two draws in their last four games they are building up some healthy momentum to keep themselves in with an outside chance of pulling off a great escape from relegation in League One.

Bury fell behind in the 58th minute when defender Timothee Dieng converted Alex Gilliead's shot from close range.

The Shakers were not behind for long, however, as four minutes later Nathan Cameron forced the ball in after James Hanson's header had been stopped on the line by Bradford's Alex Gilliead.

Bradford defender Matthew Kilgallon was dismissed for a second yellow card in the 79th minute.

It looked like the home side had won the game when Shay McCartan scored a minute from the end of normal time.

But the Shakers have been a more resilient unit under Lowe and in the fifth minute of stoppage time up popped Miller to head his fourth goal in four games since arriving back at Gigg Lane on loan.
