Bury captain Ryan Lowe headed a last-gasp equaliser to salvage a 1-1 draw at home to Hereford.
Andy Bishop had a first-half penalty saved by Adam Bartlett before Guillem Bauza gave Hereford the lead with a 46th-minute penalty of his own.
The Bulls then had captain Kenny Lunt sent off in the 74th minute and Lowe headed home at the death to give the Shakers a deserved point.
Bury had the better of the first half with Bishop and Mike Jones testing Bartlett early on.
Bauza then fired over while Lowe hit a free-kick narrowly over before scuffing a close-range shot from Phil Picken's low cross.
Lowe was then bundled over by Michael Townsend but Bartlett dived to his left to save Bishop's poor spot-kick.
Bishop would rue that miss as Picken brought down Joe Colbeck and Bauza side-footed home for the Bulls' first goal since the opening day.
Bury replied with Andy Haworth testing Bartlett before Lunt was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
The Shakers then laid siege on the Hereford goal, with Peter Sweeney hitting the crossbar and Lowe having a goal disallowed before heading home from Sweeney's cross.
