BURY Amateurs suffered their second defeat of the season when they went down 2-0 to a well-organised Stockport Georgians.

Unconvincing defending allowed the home side to take the lead on 30 minutes, but Ammies stepped up a gear and an equaliser looked on the cards.

Lee Bruce and Pete Hickford had chances and impressive winger Steve Simms, who caused plenty of problems getting on the end of John Maylon’s raking passes, was denied by an excellent save with one opportunity as Ammies got on top.

Georgians, however, tightened their grip as the game wore on and sealed the game with the killer second goal.

The two teams meet again on Saturday at Cams Lane.
