Clinical Bury moved into fourth spot in League Two despite conceding two goals in 60 seconds in a pulsating first half as they beat Macclesfield 4-2.
The Shakers raced into a three-goal lead with Michael Jones finding the far corner with a powerful low drive in the seventh minute.
Star striker Ryan Lowe then saw a 15-yard shot deflect past Jose Veiga in the 33rd minute and Veiga then left himself stranded as Nicky Ajose raced past him outside the box to slot into the empty net.
But the hosts, who have now taken only two points in the last eight games, bounced back with two goals in 60 seconds.
Ross Draper sliced through the defence to find the far corner on 38 minutes before Tyrone Barnett headed home his seventh of the season from eight yards out.
After the break ex-Mac man Efe Sodje cleared a Ricky Sappleton shot off the line before Lowe sealed the result with a superb half volley into the top corner for his 17th of the campaign.
