Match Preview: Crewe Alexandra (A)

21 August 2015

The Shakers take on Crewe Alexandra at the Alexandra Stadium on Saturday in Sky Bet League One, kick-off 3pm.

Bury will head to the Alexandra Stadium tomorrow afternoon looking for their first three points in the League since promotion last season.


Their hosts Crewe Alexandra are also still searching for their first win in the League after two defeats at the hands of Scunthorpe United and Coventry City after an opening day draw with local rivals Port Vale.


The Railwaymen are 8/11 favourites for relegation after struggling to stay in the League during the past two seasons, but they will not be easy opposition for David Flitcroft’s men having only narrowly seen defeat in their last two games.


Bury have recently had injuries to their experienced players in Daniel Nardiello, Ryan Lowe and Craig Jones, but Flitcroft has stated that they are now on the road to recovery and should all be back training full-time with the rest of the squad next week.


This news will be a relief to the Bury Manager whose side have looked low on numbers in certain positions so far this season and the Shakers boss has spoken of his need to add additions to shore up the numbers.


Speaking ahead of the match, David Flitcroft said “We have an extensive meeting this afternoon where the football decision makers will sit down and go through each option and how each one would fit in here.


“We need to make sure that we come out of that with some targets, because the squad is light.”


Crewe Manager Steve Davis has also recently admitted that he feels his side need new additions after starting the season with 3 defeats out of four games. However, they may be buoyed by the return of skipper Harry Davis who has been out with a knee injury although it will be touch and go.


Another player the Railwaymen will be without is 19 year old midfielder James Jones, who is suffering from a shoulder injury. The youngster broke into the First Team last season after graduating from the Club’s successful Academy system, and will be missed by Steve Davis.
