Nathan Cameron scored the only goal of the game against Port Vale as Bury secured their third straight victory.

Danny Mayor and Jacob Mellis both saw 20-yard shots saved while Uche Ikpeazu's close-range effort was blocked for Vale.

Both sides failed to register a meaningful effort on goal in the second half, before Cameron's downward header from a corner broke the deadlock.

Bury are now unbeaten in five, while Vale have lost back-to-back matches.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"It was quite a bitty game - a game that was defragmented at times. We couldn't get our fluidity going at all.

"I watched Port Vale in the week and they looked quite vulnerable at set-pieces. We'd done a little bit of work on it, and Chris Hussey's deliveries were outstanding."
