Exeter City 2-1 Bury

Jimmy Keohane
Keohane's goal was his first of the season

Bury suffered their first loss since the opening day as Exeter got their first home win since April.

Matt Grimes' curling free-kick gave Exeter an early lead before Daniel Nardiello, Ryan Lowe and Danny Mayor all went close for the Shakers.

Tom Soares levelled after the break with a rasping drive from 18 yards out.

Exeter secured a third successive win late on when Jimmy Keohane scored from close range after Bury keeper Rob Lainton fumbled a deep free-kick.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We had a lot of chances, enough to win two games.

"We rushed opportunities, didn't miss the first man, didn't pick players out and it's mad because that's all we work on in training.

"We've created so much and opened them up so many times and only got one goal.

"I keep saying to this team, if we can't win it, don't lose it and they've not been able to do that today."
