A preview of Bury v Mansfield Town...
Bury are looking to bounce back after Saturday's defeat to Oxford United. The Shakers had won four games in succession before the scrappy 1-0 defeat at the JD Stadium. A win at Mansfield could potentially take Bury to 4th position in Sky Bet League 2, if other results go their way on Saturday afternoon.
The Stags go into tomorrow's fixture unbeaten in their last three Sky Bet League 2 outings, and their last five matches at home at One Call Stadium.
Bury are without solid, centre-back Adam El-Abd, who is suspended following Saturday's game against Oxford United. Hallam Hope looks set to return, after being sidelined recently due to a hip injury. Danny Nardiello is yet to return to full fitness with a hamstring problem, and is set to miss out.
Mansfield winger Junior Brown will miss the game with a hamstring injury, with loanee Jeffrey Monakana set to take his place in the starting line-up. This may be the only change made by Adam Murray, although Matt Rhead and Rakish Bingham featured in the Stags' reserve game midweek, and both found the back of the net.
Defender Michael Raynes is now ready to make a return after recovering from a hamstring injury.
*Please note that this is an ALL ticket game and no tickets will be sold on the day of the game at Mansfield. Bury fans are advised not to travel if you are not in possession of a ticket.
