Bury’s League 1 season continued with a draw against Burton at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.

A win at the then league leaders Burton (replaced by Wigan) was denied Bury by an injury-time equaliser from Nottingham Forest loanee Tyler Walker in this one-one draw.

Hamza Choudhury’s red card, for his second yellow, saw Burton play the final 20-minutes with 10-men with Bury making the most of this with Ryan Lowe’s heading us into a 74th-minute lead.

Substitute Tyler Walker, the son of former England international Des Walker, came off the bench to score a back-heel equaliser in the 92nd-minute.

These were the other results.

Saturday 2nd April 2016
Blackpool 2-0 Southend
Bradford 1-0 Scunthorpe
Burton 1-1 Bury
Chesterfield 4-2 Port Vale
Colchester 0-0 Millwall
Gillingham 0-0 Coventry
Peterborough 3-0 Crewe
Rochdale 2-2 Doncaster
Sheff Utd 2-0 Walsall
Shrewsbury 1-5 Wigan
Swindon 1-1 Fleetwood

Wigan (five-one) with a crushing win at Shrewsbury will now, having extended their unbeaten run too, be hot favourites to go on and win the title ahead of Burton (one-one) after the Brewers dropped more points in a draw with Bury at the Pirelli Stadium.

They remain the top two and ‘the ones to catch’ though.

A finish in the play-off places was strengthened by Bradford (one-nil) with a win over Scunthorpe with this now looking as though this will be what Walsall (two-nil) will have to accept following defeat at Sheffield United with Gillingham (nil-nil) doing likewise with them held at home by Coventry.

Colchester’s (nil-nil) survival hopes weren’t helped too much by this draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against Millwall, who also look a good bet for the play-offs now.

Staying up though is something Blackpool (two-nil) increased hopes of achieving with a Bloomfield Road win over Southend, who will now almost certainly fail to get into the top six with Crewe’s (three-nil) own survival hopes all but over after the defeat at Peterborough.
