Jack Marriott stuns Bury as Peterborough move into play-off places

Peterborough claimed a stoppage-time winner at Bury to snatch a 1-0 victory and move into the League One play-off places.
Posh had the better of the first half while rock-bottom Bury dominated proceedings after the break.
But Jack Marriott stunned the hosts at the death to give Steve Evans his second win in two games as Posh boss.
Bury's Jay O'Shea fired wide early on but Posh replied with Marriott having a shot saved by Connor Ripley.
George Miller then tested visiting keeper Jonathan Bond but Posh finished the half strongly.
Marriott's goal-bound strike was blocked by Peter Clarke before Ripley kept out a Danny Lloyd shot.
Bury regrouped at half-time and within three minutes of the restart Greg Leigh crossed for Neil Danns and his close-range header was gathered by Bond at the second attempt.
The Shakers remained on top, with Danny Mayor and Rohan Ince firing wide before Bond denied O'Shea and Clarke.
But Marcus Maddison played in Marriott, who lobbed Ripley to leave Bury nine points from safety.
