Bury Paper Review

27 January 2016

What the press made of the mid-week goalless draw

The Sentinel
CREWE moved off the bottom of League One as they picked up a point on the road at Bury.
Bury dominated throughout, but failed to break through a resolute Crewe defence, who were made to work hard as they spent most of the game on the back foot.
Leon Clarke had a goal disallowed for offside for the hosts, and missed two excellent chances, while other than a Ryan Colclough shot just wide before the break, the Alex had very little by way of goalmouth opportunities, though Marcus Haber did see a late effort cleared off the line
It meant back-to-back draws for the Alex after Saturday's point against Wigan, reducing the gap to safety to seven points.

The Chronicle
Crewe Alex moved off the foot of League One last night after grinding out a 0-0 draw at Bury.
Alex boss Steve Davis named an unchanged line-up from the one that drewe 1-1 at home to Wigan on Saturday and were full value for their share of the spoils at Gigg Lane.

Bury Times
BURY recorded their fourth clean sheet in five games as they were held to a goalless stalemate at home to Crewe.
Leon Clarke missed a host of opportunities as the Shakers completely dominated proceedings in what was their fourth game in 11 days.
The 30-year-old forward's two best chances came when he lifted an effort over the crossbar from two yards out in the first half before crashing a shot against the post in the second.
