Joe Whight kept his cool to convert a late penalty as Bury Town came from behind to record back-to-back victories in the Ryman League Premier Division.

The defender slotted home a 93rd-minute penalty to record a smash-and-grab success in a match the Blues otherwise dominated.

They hit the crossbar three times in the first half — twice through Nathan Clarke and once from Jack Brame — but Met Police took the lead 13 minutes from time when Bradley Hudson-Odoi won and converted a spot-kick.

However, with Danny Cunningham again playing the role of chief creator, Brame bundled in a free-kick from the former Leiston man to draw Bury level.

The hosts were not done there and were awarded their own penalty three minutes into added time when substitute Tanner Call was pulled back and Whight coolly slotted home.
