Dereham Town moved back to the top of the Bostik North League after beating 10-man Bury Town 2-0 at Aldiss Park.

Bradley Barber was dismissed for a poor tackle on Matt Castellan after just four minutes and the Magpies took full advantage of having an extra man.

They went in front in the 17th minute when Rhys Logan's chip into the box fell to Jamie Forshaw and he skilfully volleyed home from 14 yards.

Dereham nearly increased their lead when Logan put Forshaw through but this time his shot went past the far post.

Dereham continued to press after the break and they added to their tally in the 59th minute. Forshaw lifted the ball over the visiting defence into the path of Toby Hilliard who showed great composure to run on and slot home.
