FA Cup: Bury 0-1 Luton Town highlights

League One Luton reached the third round of the FA Cup for the third season in a row after a narrow victory over Bury at Gigg Lane.

Harry Cornick's close-range finish gave the Hatters victory, with the striker meeting a James Collins cross from the left for his fifth goal of the season.

League Two side Bury were industrious throughout and had excellent chances to score, with Neil Danns, Nicky Maynard and Adam Thompson going close for the two-time FA Cup winners.

But Nathan Jones' side held on despite a late barrage from the hosts and confirmed their place in the next round.

The Hatters, who were heavy favourites to win after their strong start to the League One season, hung on to their slender lead in the closing stages as the hosts pushed for an equaliser.

Bury had scored 22 goals in their past six games in all competitions, but were not potent enough in front of goal and will rue missing some guilt-edged chances throughout the game.
