Adam Hammill is shown the red card for his challenge on ex-Barnsley player Danny Rose

Bury and Barnsley missed a chance to close on the play-off places, playing out a goalless draw at Gigg Lane.

Conor Hourihane, defender Alfie Mawson and loanee Lloyd Isgrove all went close for the visitors, who were reduced to 10 men late on after Adam Hammill's challenge on Danny Rose.

Sam Winnall also volleyed over and had a header saved for a dominant Barnsley.

The Tykes are six points off the top six, with Bury a further two points back.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"There was hustle and bustle, but no really clear-cut chances. That last bit of clinical precision just wasn't on show tonight.

"Barnsley are a good team and we've not just kept them at bay, but put real pressure on them just without that telling finish.

"Two clean sheets in the last three games has really pleased me.

"The Coventry game really hurt us, the lads have come out and shown that fighting spirit."
