Last Updated: 03/11/18 8:48pm
Bury heaped further misery on Macclesfield as they strolled to a 4-1 win at League Two's bottom team.
Shakers captain Neil Danns struck twice inside the first 20 minutes to put the visitors firmly in control and, although Ben Stephens halved the deficit for Macclesfield, Jay O'Shea's well-struck free kick restored Bury's two-goal lead moments before half time.
Bury had threatened to run away with it and the lead would have been greater had Dom Telford's thunderous first-minute effort not crashed off the underside of Rhys Taylor's crossbar and out to safety.
Scott Wilson blew a terrific chance for the hosts in the second half, blazing over from six yards.
And Bury made them pay as they added a fourth on the hour mark, Nicky Maynard turning in Callum McFadzean's low ball from the left wing.
That was that for the game as a contest with the struggling Silkmen, who remain rooted to bottom spot, unable to muster any meaningful response.
