Substitute Lenell John-Lewis's late goal earned 10-man Bury a point against Brentford.
Gary Alexander's penalty gave the Bees the lead, after Mark Carrington's foul on Toumani Diagouraga.
The Shakers' Joe Skarz was then given his marching orders for a second bookable offence.
But the hosts levelled the match when Peter Sweeney's free-kick was not cleared, allowing John-Lewis to volley home the equaliser.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Bury manager Richie Barker told BBC Radio Manchester:
"I thought the goal changed it a little bit, but I thought that the lads took to what I asked them to do really well.
"They were hanging on in the last two or three minutes, we didn't really have many chances, but they were struggling to get the ball off us.
"He [Lenell John-Lewis] averages a goal once every 15 minutes at the minute which is extremely pleasing for him and he's never once moaned or whinged about being on the bench."
Brentford manager Uwe Rosler told BBC London 94.9:
"Brilliant football at times, pretty football offensive football. Passing football, creative football. Many attempts.
"Everything worked to plan. The players enjoyed themselves, the players played good football on a good pitch.
"Unfortunately we threw two points away. The game should have been done early on. We didn't deal with a second ball in the box and we got punished for with that."
