BURY GSOB followed up their confidence-boosting cup win over Old Boltonians with a convincing 4-1 victory at Little Lever.

The hosts went into Saturday's match unbeaten, sitting pretty at the top of the Lancashire Amateur League Premier Division.

And despite seeing off high-flyers Old Bolts, who replaced Little Lever at the league summit following this weekend's fixtures, the Old Boys only had one win from six league games to their name before the trip to Mytham Road.

They changed all that with a fantastic display of resilience and quality in equal measure.

Liam Donnelly put Bury in front with a tap-in after the making the most of a fumble from the Little Lever keeper.

And Mike Wilkinson made it 2-0 before the break after unleashing an unstoppable drive from the edge of the area.

Little Lever came out stronger in the second half and pulled a goal back early on through Scott Bingham.

However, Bury continued to knock on the Lever door and ended up running out clear winners thanks to a Dan Matkin brace.

He volleyed home his first from close range after the home side failed to clear a corner, but it was his second and Bury's fourth that proved to be the pick of the goals.

A neat interchange of passing down the left gave Matkin the space in the middle of the park before he let fly with a bullet of a shot, leaving the keeper with no chance as the ball flew into the top-corner.

The welcome three points moved Bury up to ninth place in the table ahead of Saturday's trip to second-bottom Tyldesley United, kick off 2.30pm.
