Martin McIntosh gave first starts to two trialists, former Doncaster Rovers and Bradford City midfielder Ricky Ravenhill and centre-back Billy Priestley who is on a two match trial from Bradford PA.

Jerome Wright gave the visitors a 10th minute lead from the penalty spot following a foul by Priestley on Greaves.

The lead was doubled on 52 minutes when substitute Sean Cooke smashed home from the edge of the area.

Priestley got one back for the Bucks when he headed home a corner but McIntosh’s side couldn’t force a leveller.
