Match Preview: Shrewsbury Town (H)

18 March 2016

Bury take on Shrewsbury Town this Saturday on 19th March 2016, 3pm kick-off, looking to extend their unbeaten home run to seven games.

The Shakers take on Shrewsbury Town tomorrow looking to extend their fantastic run of form at Gigg Lane to seven games without a defeat.


Tomorrow’s opponents are currently two places and four points below the Shakers sitting 17th in Sky Bet League One having had a relatively inconsistent season, however they are currently on an unbeaten run of 5 games.


This run coincides with their fantastic FA Cup run which ended with a 3-0 Fifth Round defeat to Manchester United at Greenhouse Meadow at the end of last month. They had beaten Championship clubs Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday to get to the last 16 of the competition.


The Shakers are looking a lot like Jekyll and Hyde with their recent form, having only won one away game so far in 2016 which is a stark contrast to their fantastic run of six games unbeaten at home.


However, with five home games left, if this form carries on they could potentially notch up their target of 52 points in no time which will ensure their place in Sky Bet League One next season.


David Flitcroft has admitted that before they look further, they will need to reach this target first and ensure that they are safe from relegation.


Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon is expecting Dominic Brown, Zak Whitbread, James Wallace, Jayson Leutwiler, Jermaine Grandison to be available for tomorrow’s after all getting through this week’s training regime.


Bury will still be without Leon Clarke, Tom Pope, George Miller, Kelvin Etuhu and Nathan Cameron due to injury. Joe Riley is also expected to miss out.


Tickets for the match are priced at Category C.
