Bury 1-0 Chesterfield

Bury's Danny Mayor came up with the only goal of the game to beat Chesterfield in League One.

The Shakers dominated the first half as Mayor struck a post and Tom Soares also hit the woodwork with the rebound.

Chesterfield improved, with Sam Morsy testing Daniel Bachmann from distance and Jay O'Shea volleying a chance over.

But Bury finally found the winner after the Spireites relinquished possession in their own half and Mayor finished low into the corner.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

Flitcroft on Bury v Chesterfield

"I said to the players at half-time, I could feel they were frustrated.

"With the recent run of results for Chesterfield, it was important that we got a goal - but an early goal I felt.

"The game plan was to start hard and start fast, which we did - the tempo was fantastic, but we just didn't kill them off.

"When you've got a top player like Danny Mayor on the pitch, you've always got an opportunity to score."
