In the 21st minute, Alex Pritchard slotted home from 15 yards out as midfielder Phillip Billing played him through on goal. This opened up the game massively and forced Bury to play out more. Bury got into the game more following this goal and had a few good chances that they failed to take. Bury 0-1 Huddersfield Town is how the first half ended.

Shortly after the second half began Chris Lowe fired an excellent ball in to the area which picked out Rajiv Van La Parra. The Dutchman took a first time shot which saw the ball rocket down off the crossbar and bounce down into the goal.
Just before the hour mark is was 3-0. Abdelhamid Sabiri bulleted a header past the helpless Bury keeper following an excellent cross from full-back Chris Lowe. This was Chris Lowe’s second assist of the game.
Youngster Matty Dally made it 4-0 with ten minutes to go. Colin Quaner powered down the right wing leaving the defenders chasing shadows before finding Dally at the back post who tapped the ball home.
