The week produced a full set of close games with two draws and six games ending in one goal wins, and one of those wins was Bury's as they continued their terrific season with a 2-1 home victory over Bury.

Wigan are in second place and could only draw at Walsall, whilst Burnley in third place suffered a fifth defeat of the season, and a third in four games, which has left us seven points behind the leaders and now down in seventh place.

Biggest winners this weekend were Morecambe who beat Shrewsbury 3-1 at home. That win has lifted them off the bottom of the table. They've gone above Rochdale who were beaten at Carlisle, and Accrington whose 3-2 defeat at Blackpool has seen them once again drop into bottom place.

It is cup action this coming weekend, the second round of the Youth Alliance Cup. Having beaten York City away in the first round the Clarets have been rewarded with a home tie against Shrewsbury which will be played at Gawthorpe. The game kicks off at 11:00 a.m.

We are next in league action on the following Saturday 1st December when we play Rochdale away.
