The game was memorable for the two goalscorers.
Bury gave a debut to a young 17 year old called Colin Bell and 'Nijinsky' as he was to be known to all City fans, scored to put the Shakers 1-0 up.
City's custodian Harry Dowd, then broke a finger in a challenge and couldn't continue between the sticks. Blues forward Matt Gray replaced Harry in nets and Harry took up a Centre Forward position.
Amazingly Dowd was the hero as he set Derek Kevan up for a shot which hit the bar, and then Harry, using his cat-like reactions pounced on the rebound to force the ball over the line for City's equaliser.
