Bury 1-1 Forest Green Rovers

Will Aimson scored a dramatic late header to earn Bury a point against 10-man Forest Green Rovers at Gigg Lane.

Christian Doidge opened the scoring with a header on the half-hour mark, but Mark Cooper's men, who had Gavin Gunning sent off, conceded a late leveller when Aimson followed up in stoppage-time.

Forest Green were in front after 29 minutes when striker Doidge powered Carl Winchester's ball from the right into the top left-corner, after Bury failed to clear a set-piece.

Having gone a goal down, Ryan Lowe's Shakers looked for a route back into the contest, with Adam Thompson heading over before the break, while striker Dominic Telford was thwarted by Rovers goalkeeper Robert Sanchez after the restart.

Forest Green defender Gunning was dismissed by referee John Busby for bringing down Gold Omotayo when he was through on goal.

And Bury made the numerical advantage count as they levelled in the first minute of added time when Danny Mayor's shot was saved by Sanchez, only for Aimson to thump home the rebound.
