Danny Rose has been in fine form since signing for Bury from Barnsley

Bury climbed back up to fourth in League Two with a 2-0 home win against Cambridge United.

Nicky Adams claimed a 13th-minute opener from 25 yards before Danny Rose's header doubled the Shakers' lead in the 28th minute.

Cambridge improved after the break but could not avoid slipping to 14th place.

Ryan Donaldson and substitute Liam Hughes had shots blocked as the visitors exerted some pressure before Adams almost struck a third for Bury.
