Barking had to settle for a point against 10-man Bury at Ram Meadow on Saturday.

Blues applied prlenty of pressure in the final stages, after Darcy Death was given his marching orders for the home side on 62 minutes.

But Justin Gardner’s men could not force a winner as they extended their unbeaten league run to 10 matches.

Ollie Bowles got down well to smother from Ryan Jolland on three minutes, while Abs Seymour had Barking’s first sight of goal midway through the half but could not capitalise.

The visitors went close to breaking the deadlock on 37 minutes when Dan Gilchrist hit the crossbar, but Bury then saw Cemal Ramadan’s first-time effort force a superb save from Bowles just before the break.

Barking should have taken the lead four minutes after the restart, but Seymour headed wide from close range.

And Bowles made a good save with his feet to keep out Ramadan’s far-post effort from Death’s long throw-in on 55 minutes.

Death was shown a red card for a dangerous two-footed tackle and Bury were almost made to pay four minutes from time when Ben O’Brien blasted wide.

Substitute Ryan Reed’s low drive looked to be heading for the bottom corner of the net in the last minute, but Luis Tibbles saved well as Bury held on despite their numerical disadvantage.

Barking dropped one place to sixth, after Potters Bar beat Mildenhall to climb above them, and return to home turf to play host to Brentwood Town at Mayesbrook Park on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Barking: Bowles, Tarbard, Marfo, O’Brien, Jaffa, Da Cruz, Jones, Seymour, Gilchrist (Reed 68), Hughes-Mason (Shaban 83), Taylor. Unused subs: Reynolds, Tuohy, Adeyemi.

Attendance: 234.
