Five changes to the side that lost last time out. Reilly, McLaughlin, Cansdell-Sherriff, Naylor and Beavon in for Butcher, Matthews, Flanagan, Palmer and Thiele out.It was a footballing opening 20 minutes with both sides enjoying good spells with the ball. Callum Reilly in particular looked very tidy with the ball and played some nice passes but nothing enough to penetrate the Bury back line.
Stuart Beavon had a brilliant chance to put the Brewers ahead on 25 minutes. He received the ball from Tom Naylor with his back to goal, he turned past Clarke to leave him one-on-one with Bachmann who was quick off his line to put Beavon off, he chipped it over him but missed the target.
Moments later the Brewers had another great chance to be ahead. A clever free kick taken by Reilly to Binnom-Williams was clipped in, Cansdell-Sherriff glanced the ball on to Mousinho who drilled it back across goal for El Khayati who fired way over from just six yards out.
GOAL: Bury took the lead just before half time. A debut goal from Joe Dodoo game the Shakers the lead. He tried to cross the ball but it deflected off Binnom-Williams to loop over McLaughlin and it will go down as an own-goal.
HT: Bury 1-0 Burton Albion
Bury nearly doubled their lead in the second half as a good run by Dodoo provided the chance for Pope to head towards goal but his effort was headed off the line by Cansdell-Sherriff before a number of Albion bodies denied a second effort, this time by Leon Clarke.
Mark Duffy nearly put the Brewers level 58 minutes into the game with a clever free kick. He lined it up about 25 yards out shaping to cross it, he went for the near post but Bachmann did well to get down and deny the Birmingham-Loanee.
Thiele was thrown on with 30 minutes to go and he very nearly added an equaliser. He received the ball on his left foot in the box, his shot was blocked which left Binnom-Williams with the chance to shoot from distance which he did and he stung the hands of Bachmann.
The Brewers stopper McLaughlin kept the score at 1-0 after he tipped a fierce shot onto the bar from Kelvin
The big man Leon Clarke went to ground under a Mousinho challenge, it was a great challenge by the Albion skipper but the Bury fans weren't happy and they wanted a penalty.
Joachim was thrown on to try and replicate what he did for his country last week and score a late goal. Duffy whipped a corner in which the Luxembourg international met but his effort was cleared off the line.
