Bury Town manager Ben Chenery, whose side have today been drawn at home to National League South side Hemel Hempstead Town in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup on September 26, said he was just relieved to get through after Saturday’s come-from-behind 2-1 win against lower-league Cockfosters.

The Blues had fallen behind after a lapse of concentration at the back allowed Sivi Bao a simple finish in the second minute of the game.

But the man who held his hands up to the mistake, veteran centre-back Justin Miller, headed in the equaliser on the half-hour mark.

The second half saw both chances exchange good chances before Miller popped up with what proved to be the winner in the 76th minute, swivelling to convert a loose ball following a Bradley Barber corner.

Cockfosters were reduced to 10 men when substitute Jacob Kalonda lashed out at Miller as the game entered injury-time.

* Meanwhile, Needham Market, who were held to 1-1 at home to lower-league Stanway Rovers on Saturday with Sam Newson equalising in the first half, would host either Staines Town (Ryman Premier) or Faversham Town (Ryman One South), should they win their replay in Essex on Tuesday.
