Fred Onyedinma's second-half goal at Bury rescued a point for Wycombe and kept them top of League Two.

In a scrappy game, Danny Mayor did enough to bundle home the opening goal from a Ryan Lowe cross after Alfie Mawson failed to clear the danger.

Wycombe's Aaron Amadi-Holloway had an effort saved before Onyedinma met a Joe Jacobson cross to fire the equaliser past Shakers goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Danny Rose had a chance to win it for Bury, but volleyed off target late on.

David Flitcroft: Bury boss on Wycombe draw

"People say that Wycombe would come here and try to dominate you, but my team don't know how to get dominated.

"I was very happy with the first half performance and how we controlled the game and dominated the game and created chances.

"Second half, it was tin helmet time and we've withstood everything Wycombe threw at us, and the referee's balanced it out - not too sure if he wanted a draw because he thought he might have made a mistake by playing the game.

"As a team, the referees haven't organised themselves in the best positions to give a free-kick (for a foul) on Adam El-Abd and then the boy who scored used his hand to push the ball into the box."

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Ainsworth on Bury v Wycombe

"I don't come to a place like Bury expecting to get three points, but after the performance today I'm surprised we haven't.

"We started sloppy. For the first 20 minutes we weren't in the game, and we've gifted them a goal.

"We've shown great character again to come from behind.

"I'm not sure this game should have gone ahead if I am being totally honest, the pitch is terrible!"
