The Shakers were going for the elusive seventh away win on the bounce for the first time since 1961, and started well with Nicky Ajose narrowly missing within the first ten minutes. Bury should have gone in ahead at half time, but Schumacher steered a header narrowly wide from inside the box.
Shakers keeper Williams kept the Shakers hopes alive with a smart save from a Stuart Beavon header just minutes into the second half, but had no chance with Wycombe's only goal when Bloomfield raced into the Bury box and pulled the ball back for Rendell to tap home.
On loan defender Gavin Gunning shot wide later in the game when Bury attempted a fightback, but Wanderers finished stronger and closed the gap between the clubs with only three points between them. The Shakers however stay within the automatic promotion positions.
Manager Alan Knill sounded disappointed when he stated that Bury were the better team in the first half, but Wycombe were the better team in the second half. He thought a draw the likely result.
He remains upbeat seeing no reason why Bury shouldn't get three points from Saturday's home game against Stevenage. He proudly proclaimed that he sees the encounter as a probable win for Bury but good steady preparation and raised heads would be needed.
