Wycombe Wanderers 0-0 Bury

Wycombe and Bury played out a stalemate at Adams Park despite the hosts hitting the crossbar twice in stoppage time.

In a game of few chances which leaves both teams in League Two's top six, the visitors were first to strike the woodwork when Andrew Tutte hit the bar.

Wycombe midfielder Peter Murphy then scuffed his shot when well placed.

But, with 14 minutes of injury time signalled by the officials, first Matt McClure and then Murphy headed against the bar in a goalmouth scramble.

The time added-on followed a potentially serious neck injury to Wycombe striker Steven Craig, who was carried off after falling awkwardly midway through the second half.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"Last year was a big scare. I want to get to that points total which will secure us in League Two. Anything after that is a bonus. But we're not far off the points we were at this stage last year, so I'm not cracking open the champagne just yet.

"It was another game in which the effort and application was evident in bundles. That's what I've really tried to work on and I'm really pleased with the performance.

"I really thought we could have got all three points but you've got to take your chances. We created plenty and, once we start converting, it'll be very good."

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I don't get frustrated or angry, I think that just stops your problem solving.

"There are problems that we endured today that I can't wait to start next week and put right.

"We are a possession-based team and we got caught up in the game today."
