ACCRINGTON Stanley surrendered a two goal lead to bow out of the Checkatrade Trophy as Bury completed a second half comeback to secure a 4-2 win.

First half goals from Jordan Clark and Billy Kee had Stanley 2-0 up at the break.

But Bury scored four second half goals as substitute Dominic Telford netted twice with Danny Mayor and Nicky Maynard getting the others.

The Shakers created the first chance of the game in the sixth minute when Callum McFadzean played a low cross form the left across the face of goal but Stanley’s Will Wood cleared well.

Clark then brilliantly put the home side in front. Sean McConville’s low cross found the winger 20 yards from goal, he dropped a shoulder and fired into the top corner, leaving Bury goalkeeper Joe Murphy with no chance.

Bury looked for a leveller with Eoghan O’Connell firing a powerful volley just over Jonny Maxted’s crossbar before Ryan Cooney fired over from 10 yards when well placed.

And the Shakers were made to pay when Stanley doubled their lead through Billy Kee.

There was a lovely build up to the goal as McConville slipped a ball through for Clark who crossed for Kee to tap in.

Bury halved the deficit nine minutes after the break when Telford, on as a sub, fired home off the post.

And two minutes later Bury were level when another sub - Maynard - scored from 12 yards.

Mark Hughes should have restored Stanley’s lead on 66 minutes but the defender headed over.

With just 15 minutes to go Bury completed the turnaround as Telford netted his second.

Jay O’Shea slipped a lovely ball through to Maynard who found Telford to tap in.

Maxted made a smart save from O’Shea to keep Stanley in the contest but he was beaten by Mayor with six minutes to play.

The wideman drove forward and fired a powerful strike at goal from distance which flew in past the Reds keeper at his near post.
