Crewe Alexandra 3-3 Bury

Steve Davis
Steve Davis's Crewe side are 20th in League One with only two points from four matches

Brad Inman's goal with 10 minutes remaining earned Crewe a point in a six-goal thriller against Bury.

Winless Crewe went ahead when on-loan midfielder Adam King clipped the ball into the top corner before Danny Mayor made it 1-1 after Chris Hussey's pass.

Ryan Colclough scored from Billy Bingham's free-kick to restore the hosts' lead before Tom Soares levelled.

Danny Rose put Bury in front from Hussey's cutback but Inman ran clear and shot into the corner to equalise.

Flitcroft on Crewe v Bury

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I never felt threatened totally by Crewe. We dominated large spells, the players felt that we dominated the ball and that we were really threatening.

"All season we've looked really threatening and really powerful. You do worry as a coach when you're not creating chances, but we've created a hatful against every team we've played.

"But now it's my job, as a manager, to make sure that we try and close the door at the back and make sure we lock it down because we've conceded too many this season."
