Bury claim unlikely draw against Doncaster

Relegated Bury ended their run of defeats in a brilliantly unpredictable 3-3 draw at Doncaster.
Ryan Lowe's side came from 2-0 down to lead before Doncaster equalised, which ultimately gave the Shakers their first point since March 10.
Few would have predicted such a scoreline as Doncaster dominated the opening half hour against a deflated Bury side
Andy Butler headed the hosts in front from a James Coppinger cross after just two minutes and John Marquis clipped past the on-rushing Joe Murphy to double the lead from a sweeping one-touch passing move in the 35th minute.
Just as Rovers looked to have turned their comfort in play to that on the scoreline, Niall Mason headed into his own goal from Callum Styles' testing free kick in the 38th minute.
Bury were buoyed at the start of the second half and Jay O'Shea equalised from the penalty spot in the 51st minute after Matty Blair tripped Phil Edwards.
Unbelievably, the visitors went ahead nine minutes later when George Miller slotted home from close range after Zeli Ismail broke clear.
Doncaster found parity in the 65th minute when Boyle headed in a Coppinger corner.
