Match Preview: Stevenage vs Bury

8 March 2019

The Shakers head south this weekend for a Sky Bet League Two encounter with Dino Maamria’s Stevenage FC.

Ryan Lowe was coming into the game in high spirits after winning his third Manager of the Month award of the season, but he still knows it’ll be a tough game and nothing can be taken for granted: “They’re not a pushover for anyone, they’re a good team on their day and they’re effective in what they do. Yes, they’ve had some inconsistencies in their results, but that doesn’t mean anything. We don’t look at the form guide.” 

Eoghan O’Connell also spoke to the press ahead of the game, “They’re kind of in the mix for the Play-Offs, they’re challenging so they’re going to be well up for it. Every game away from home is tough and I think if we can replicate Tuesday night’s performance and maybe take our chances, we’ll be alright.”

John Busby will take charge of his thirty-fifth game this season, having previously brandished eighty-two yellow cards and five red ones. 

One of those dismissals was in his only previous Bury game of the season, when Will Aimson’s dramatic stoppage-time equaliser salvaged a point at home to Forest Green Rovers.  He has also covered one Stevenage game as he officiated their 1-0 win at the LAMEX Stadium against Yeovil Town. 

The Official has so far had four cardless games. 

We’ve Met Before 

Saturday will be the tenth time the Shakers and the Boro will meet, with the Shakers only losing on two occasions, winning four times and drawing three. 

Bury haven’t lost against Saturday’s opponents since 2012, going unbeaten in the last five. 

Form Guide 

The Shakers are top of the form guide for the last ten games, winning seven and drawing three. They’re the only team in the division to bag over twenty times in the ten games with twenty-two. In contrast, Stevenage are twelfth, winning four and losing four, drawing the other two. The Boro have conceded more than they’ve scored in the period, having a minus three goal difference.

Match Report: Stevenage 0-1 Bury

9 March 2019

The Shakers left it late to grab maximum points at the LAMEX Stadium as Nicky Maynard’s ninety-fourth minute header broke the deadlock to secure a 1-0 win for Bury!

Ryan Lowe named three changes to Tuesday’s team as Telford, Mayor and Moore made way for Skipper Neil Danns, Lavery and Maynard.

Moses Makasi had a brilliant chance to give his side the lead after just three minutes. The ball was cut back to him from the left, finding Makasi in plenty of space, his first touch was woeful, and Adam Thompson was on hand to clear.

A brilliant, quick Shakers move presented a brilliant chance to Maynard. McFadzean played a long ball up to Lavery, who used his chest to get the ball to Maynard, but his effort was wide from just inside the area.

Another chance fell the way of Nicky Maynard. Adams squared the ball to Lavery, who poked the ball into the path of Maynard. The forward struck a low effort on goal, but nothing that was too troubling to Farman who collected the ball low.

The opening quarter produced very little in the way of opportunities, however, a low ball in from the left found Makasi in the Bury box, this time he could only fire wide of Murphy’s post.

Neil Danns was the next Bury player to have an effort on goal.  A smart free-kick found him on the edge of the area, before he curled an effort goal wards, forcing Farman into a save.

It was a half of little chances, with the biggest cheer before the forty-second minute coming when the Assistant Referee had to be changed.

Makasi was the man who was getting the chances for the hosts. He looked to profit from a defensive mishap, but his low strike when one-on-one with Murphy was expertly stopped by the ‘keeper with his legs.

There was almost late drama in the four added minutes at the end of the first period. Nicky Adams delivered a cross into the path of Lavery, who just couldn’t sort his legs out to make contact, allowing the hosts to clear.

HALF-TIME: Stevenage 0-0 Bury

Just over two minutes into the second half, O’Connell looked to replicate his heroics from the first fixture as O’Shea laid the ball off to him. He struck it sweetly, but unfortunately beyond the upright as the ball was always rising from twenty yards.

Alex Revell came close to breaking the deadlock when he met a ball into the middle. He powered a header towards goal, but Murphy was able to palm the ball into the floor and catch it to bring an end to the attack.

Another game and another brilliant defensive display from Jordan Rossiter. The midfielder was always on hand to clear the ball from dangerous areas, cutting out a reverse ball to John Hunt, and with it, any threat to the Shakers goal.

Nicky Maynard released Lavery down the channel, the latter tried to force his way infield after breaking beyond the back line, but Scott Cuthbert recovered well to marshal Lavery out of play.

It was a tight, scrappy affair, neither side were able to create many decent opportunities throughout as it was a day for the defenders, with the game finely poised entering the final fifteen minutes.

With just ten minutes remaining, the hosts should have been ahead. Jordan Gibson was slipped through into plenty of space inside the Bury area. Murphy raced off his line and the Stevenage man dinked the ball over the ‘keeper, but also over the bar.

There were incredible scenes with just sixty seconds remaining on the clock! Jordan Rossiter drilled a cross into the middle, Telford’s header looped to Adam Thompson who nodded back across goal into the path of Nicky Maynard who scored his nineteenth goal of the season, powering a header beyond a helpless Farman to collect all three points for Ryan Lowe’s side.
