Bury v City

Exeter City's dented promotion hopes suffered another blow at Bury, where they were defeated by 4-2, with Beamish getting a "hat trick" for the Shakers. Delve and Sims scored the City's goals. Bury gave a trial to David Constantine, a 21 years old left back, for his debut in senior football. Exeter fielded an unchanged team.
