After the break the Harriers continued to dominate the game and were looking good value for their lead.
The first chance of this half fell to Andy Bishop again when again the Bury defence was split but this time he hesitated too long and he was robbed superbly by Lee Unsworth. Minutes later the same kind of break happened again and this time Bishop made amends.
Again Sean Flynn split the Bury defence open to allow Bishop a clear run on goal and unleash a shot from the right hand side of the area which flew past Garner in the Bury goal.
We looked to be cruising it then and it seemed only a matter of time before a fourth goal would be added but we hadn't banked on a double substitution by the Bury manager. He bought on Nugent and O'Shaughnessy for Clegg and Woodthorpe in an effort to stop the rampant Harriers forwards.
The move seemed to spur Bury into action and us into making silly mistakes. Our passing had gone back to it's first half state and it was us that now found ourselves under pressure.
The pay off came in the 80th minute when the visitors pulled a goal back just after the arrival of the Shakers third substitution. Ian Lawson for Terry Dunfield.
Adie Smith was judged to have fouled Colin Cramb on the edge of the area and the ensuing free kick rebounded off the wall. After a bit of a scramble it fell to Lawson who slotted it home from six yards out.
Soon after they had pulled another goal back through another free kick on the edge of the area.
The free kick was taken quickly at first but the ball struck the referee on the back. He then booked Dean Bennett for an infringement and told them to take it again ten yards nearer to the goal. Redmond took the kick and his low drive went through the wall and into the back of the net.
Bury had been given renewed hope and that was given further encouragement when the referee inexplicably added on an extra 4 minutes of added time.
In that time they could have drawn themselves level when Cramb wasted a glorious chance to equalise but his shot almost hit the scoreboard.
In the very last seconds of the game Ian Foster
missed his chance of glory when he shot into the side netting after Danny Williams first shot was well saved by Garner.
Although we scored three goals and the two we let through couldn't really be avoided it would be nice to see some of our passing improved in time for the visit of Oxford Utd this Tuesday.
