Bury’s League 1 season continued with a win against Peterborough at Gigg Lane on Tuesday.

A recovery from the Wigan defeat was managed as Bury saw off struggling Peterborough, who have now lost five in a row, three-one.

Leon Clarke had Bury ahead on 29-minutes from a Chris Hussey cross with that soon double when Ryan Lowe made it two before the break on 33-minutes.

Marcus Maddison gave the visitors hopes early in the second half but when Posh had Ricardo Santos sent off Andrew Tutte made sure of the win from the freekick that followed 10-minutes from time to see Bury above Peterborough into 13th.

These were the other results.

Tuesday 1st March 2016
Barnsley 2-0 Coventry
Bradford 1-2 Colchester
Bury 3-1 Peterborough
Chesterfield 1-1 Blackpool
Fleetwood 2-1 Gillingham
Millwall 0-0 Wigan
Oldham 1-1 Port Vale
Sheff Utd 0-1 Burton
Shrewsbury 2-0 Rochdale
Southend 1-1 Crewe
Swindon 2-0 Doncaster
Walsall 0-0 Scunthorpe

Burton’s (one-nil) lead at the top was extended once more with them beating Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The main rivals to the Brewers at the moment either drew, which is what Wigan (nil-nil) did at Millwall as did Walsall (nil-nil) against Scunthorpe, or lost as Gillingham (two-one) once again did at Fleetwood, with the Cod Army’s survival hopes boosted by this win.

It’ll still take something special for Colchester (two-one) you sense but ending the club record run without a league win is something the U’s managed with a morale boosting win at play-off chasing Bradford.

On the topic of the play-offs, the surge from relegation battlers to genuine play-off contenders continued for Barnsley (two-nil) with another win against Coventry, who could be rivals for this but are faltering a little.
