Southend United 1-1 Bury

Bury substitute Craig Jones rescued a point for the Shakers against Southend at Roots Hall.

Barry Corr put the Shrimpers in front with a well-struck volley from 10 yards, after collecting Michael Timlin's deep cross.

Southend were unable to hold on though, and were pegged back when Jones headed in Danny Mayor's cross.

The hosts had late shouts for a penalty waved away, after David Worrall appeared to be brought down.

No win in five leaves Southend in ninth, while Bury fall to fifth in the table.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"To go one goal down, the lads are really then second guessing themselves, you could see it and I could feel it."

"Second half they came out with a brightness and an energy and we moved the ball better."

"I just said to them at half-time, go out and relax and enjoy it - we've got nothing to lose now."
