FOLLOWING their disappointing loss at Port Vale last time out, Bury bounced back in clinical style as Neil Danns’ double came inside the first 20 minutes.

Macclesfield responded on the half-hour through Ben Stephens’ strike but Jay O’Shea’s free-kick restored the two-goal lead just before the interval.

The Shakers continued to dominate and Maynard’s strike on the hour sealed an impressive result, with manager Ryan Lowe full of praise for the 31-year-old after his sixth strike in six games.
