Match Preview: Bury vs Northampton Town

21 April 2019

Ryan Lowe and his side conclude their Easter Weekend when they host Keith Curle’s Northampton Town on Monday.

The Shakers will look to bounce back to winning ways, after a Good Friday defeat at Newport County, saw them drop to fourth in the league table. However, other fixtures mean that it is still in Bury’s hands. 

The last time the sides met, it was Curle’s first game in charge of the Cobblers, and since his appointment, only seven teams have better records, one of those being Bury. 

Nicky Maynard hit the back of the net for the twenty-first time this season last time out, putting Ryan Lowe’s side on ninety-nine goals for the campaign, one off the century! 

The Gaffer spoke to iFollow Bury following the Newport County game on Friday, looking ahead to Monday’s clash he had this to say: “We’ve got to keep pushing and plugging away, I said it’s going to be tough, the league can change up and down. We’ve got to be ready to pounce now. MK Dons and Mansfield have pounced on us today because we’ve missed out. We now have to wait to pounce on one of their results, and hopefully, we can do that." 

Jordan Rossiter also previewed the game on Monday, “We just need to recover well. The good thing about playing again Monday is we can get this out of our systems, and I think that’s what we need to do and as I say, three huge games to come and the lads are going to put everything into it.”

Michael Salisbury will take charge of his fortieth game of the campaign on Monday, and his first Shakers game of the season. He has taken charge of the one Northampton game previously, their 1-1 draw at Lincoln in February. 

In his thirty-nine previous games this season, the official has reached to his pocket for a yellow card one-hundred-fifteen times, while producing four red cards.

We’ve Met Before

The two sides have met before on sixty-four occasions. The Shakers edge the head-to-head slightly, winning twenty-four times compared to the twenty-three wins Northampton have. Bury and Northampton have drawn on seventeen occasions, including the most recent meeting back in October last year. 

The last thirteen meetings read favourable for the Shakers, having only suffered two defeats in the games dating back to 2009. 

Form Guide

Bury sit eleventh in the table after their last ten games, winning four, losing four and drawing two on their way to collecting fourteen points. The Shakers have managed to score in eight from the ten games, hitting the back of the net fourteen times. 

In contrast, Keith Curle’s side are fifth in the table, winning five, losing two and drawing three as they have managed to get eighteen points from a possible thirty. However, they have only won one of their last six games, which was last time out as they were 3-1 victors over Sol Campbell’s Macclesfield Town.

Match Report: Bury 3-1 Northampton Town

22 April 2019

Bury reclaimed their grip of the automatic promotion spots after coming from behind to beat Northampton Town. Goals from Chris Stokes, Danny Mayor and Nicky Maynard cancelled out Andy Williams' 27th-minute header, as the Shakers went back to second in the table, with just two games remaining.

Ryan Lowe made just one change to Friday's team, bringing Adam Thompson back into the starting eleven at the expense of Byron Moore, who dropped to the bench. He was joined by Eoghan O'Connell, who was back in the squad following an injury.

The visitors were close to opening the scoring after seven minutes through Andy Williams. Northampton set a counter-attack off after dispossessing Danny Mayor, working the ball into the path of Williams, who was denied a brilliant chance after a fantastic last-ditch challenge from Will Aimson.

Bury were looking dangerous on the attack. Nicky Adams whipped a very good ball into the box, but it was just out of reach of Dom Telford in the middle and Northampton had a goal-kick.

The Shakers continued to apply the pressure, with Northampton having to put a handful of blocks in, with the final one coming as Jay O'Shea almost found the top corner with a curled effort.

Today's Skipper Nicky Adams was looking menacing, delivering another brilliant delivery into the middle. On this occasion, it was into the path of Chris Stokes, who was inches away from making contact to take the ball goal wards.

Just before the half-hour mark, the visitors took the lead through Andy Williams. Sam Foley found himself in space on the right-hand-side, delivering a great ball into the middle. Williams stooped low to turn the ball home with his head.

The response for the Shakers came from Chris Stokes! Bury's number three surged into the area to get onto the end of a delightful cross from Nicky Adams, directing the ball into the top corner on the half-volley with his first touch. The strike brought up the one-hundredth Bury goal of the season!

Bury continued to push for the goal that would put them into the lead. Nicky Adams delivered a corner deep into the area, finding Will Aimson who met the ball, but David Cornell was able to catch the ball with ease.

HALF-TIME: Bury 1-1 Northampton Town

The second period got off to a tight start with neither side fashioning a clear-cut chance. The Shakers had a penalty appeal waved away when Maynard was taken to the ground.

Dom Telford went close, working David Cornell in the Northampton goal. He struck a low effort on target, but the 'keeper was down low to stop the forward bagging from outside the area.

After getting an earlier sighter in, Danny Mayor made no mistake second time round. He cut in from the left, curling an emphatic finish into the far corner after selling the defender with a drop of the shoulder!

The Shakers kept the pressure on the visitors, looking to increase their advantage after taking the lead, to help them secure what would be a massive three points.

Northampton still looked dangerous when they got forward themselves. Former Shaker David Buchanan whipped a good ball into the box, finding Northampton Skipper Aaron Pierre, who couldn't find the target with his header.

There was a scare for the Shakers with five minutes remaining. Andy Williams was slipped through and dinked the ball over Joe Murphy, who was racing off his line. Thankfully for Ryan Lowe and his side, the ball was just wide of the mark as Williams couldn't double his tally for the afternoon.

Nicky Maynard wrapped the game up in stoppage time, getting onto the end of a sumptuous Nicky Adams cross. He poked the ball beyond David Cornell with a fantastic finish, the 'keeper had no chance at his near post.
