Joe Jacobson celebrated a second month on loan at Accrington by scoring the winning goal in Stanley's 1-0 win over promotion-chasing Bury.

The Oldham defender leapt above the Shakers defence to head home a Sean McConville corner in the 77th minute - his first goal for the Reds.

Up until that point Bury keeper Cameron Belford had single-handedly kept out Stanley who are looking to climb out of the bottom half of the table.

McConville was the first to test the visiting keeper on nine minutes with a long range effort which the stopper managed to hold onto.

The Stanley midfielder then sent striker Terry Gornell free on 17 minutes and he got the better of the Bury defence before forcing another good save out of Belford.

From the resulting corner, Jimmy Ryan struck from six yards out with the Shakers keeper again coming to their rescue, diving low to scrape it off the line.

It was a series of Stanley attacks as the visitors struggled to get going with Phil Edwards sending through McConville whose scuffed effort was collected by Belford and Ryan curling a strike wide.

Just before the break the Bury keeper kept out McConville and, immediately after, he superbly pushed out a Ryan free kick before Jacobson finally found a way past him.

Bury are now winless in four league games, having slipped out of the automatic promotion slots.
