Lateef Elford-Alliyu's late equaliser rescued a point against Preston as Bury continue to battle relegation from League One.
Preston keeper Thorsten Stuckmann made a trio of saves either side of the break from David Amoo, Andrai Jones and Andy Bishop to keep his side in it.
Chuks Aneke, gave North End the breakthrough when his shot deflected in off Efetobore Sodje.
But Elford-Alliyu swept the ball home after Amoo struck the bar to level.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Bury manager Richie Barker told BBC Radio Manchester:
"For the second time in a couple of weeks we've gone into injury time and it shows tremendous character by the players.
"They've earnt the right to compete with Preston at grounds like this, they didn't give up and it was the least that I expected.
"We've worked really hard this week and I've put loads of information into the players and they've given me everything back.
"We need to build on it and need to not rest on our laurels as well as the performances can't drop for the next seven games."
