Jake Cole produced a string of fine saves as Barnet held promotion-chasing Bury to a 0-0 draw at Underhill.
The Bees were on the back foot for the majority of the game, but Cole's efforts ensured honours were even.
The hosts were quick out of the blocks and inside the first 10 minutes both John O'Flynn and Albert Adomah forced Bury keeper Wayne Brown into fine saves.
But after that the visitors took control, David Worrall wasting Bury's best opening, dragging his shot wide after being released by Andy Morrell.
The closest the visitors came to a goal was after 22 minutes, Michael Jones' quick free-kick setting up Ryan Lowe, whose close-range effort struck the foot of the post.
The game really opened up after the interval with both sides looking to attack, Adomah again going close for the Bees.
As the half wore on though the Shakers looked the side most likely to win it, substitute Andy Bishop seeing his close-range effort blocked by Cole.
And it was Cole who was the hero again late on, parrying Jones' header.
