WAL­SALL ............1 BURY ..................1

header shaved the top of the bar.Wal­sall went ahead against the run of play on 22 min­utes, though, as Fe­bian Brandy fired a fine first-time fin­ish into the bot­tom cor­ner from just in­side the box.

James Cham­bers then saw a goal ruled out – wrongly, ac­cord­ing to Sad­dlers man­ager Dean Smith – for off­side but af­ter the break it was all Bury.Wal­sall stop­per Sam Johnstone saved well from Shak­ers skip­per David Worrall, while Nicky Ajose poked wide from six yards.

But they got the lev­eller they de­served in the fi­nal minute as Clarke-Har­ris’ stun­ning 30yard free-kick was tipped onto the bar by Johnstone and Efe Sodje bun­dled home the re­bound.

Sad­dlers boss Dean Smith said: “We’ve had a tremen­dous sea­son and just fallen short at the end – we’ve drawn too many out of the last five or six but the per­for­mances have still been really good, with the ex­cep­tion of to­day.

“That was our worst per­for­mance for a while but we still never looked like get­ting beaten and should have won it. Their goal was off­side. If other re­sults had gone for us, (refs chief) David Al­li­son’s num­ber would have been the first one I di­alled af­ter the game.”
