Bury took the lead through Kelvin Etuhu's fine effort from distance after a corner was half cleared.

Daniel Nardiello headed in at the near post from a corner to wrap up the win for Bury.

Flitcroft on Bury v Tranmere

"It's like anything, you go to work and you try to produce a performance and we have done today.

"Kelvin Etuhu is a destroyer, he's a destructive player and something we don't really ask him for is goals, so when it goes in off his shin, I've been a bit surprised that he's scored it.

"He's fantastic. I'm glad he's scored because he's worked hard for that."
