Match preview:Doncaster Rovers vs Bury

17 April 2018

Bury and Doncaster Rovers will face each other on Tuesday evening after both sides had conflicting fortunes on Saturday.

The hosts mathematically confirmed their stay in League One for at least one more season, after coming from behind at MK Dons to secure a 2-1 victory.

Meanwhile, the Shakers confirmed their return to League Two after a 3-2 loss to Northampton Town at the Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane.  The hosts had twice fought back from behind but with 4 games of the season still to be played, the return to the fourth tier was confirmed.

Manager Ryan Lowe is still undecided about what team to put out at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday: “That’s something I’ll have to think about.  They’ll be in tomorrow (Sunday) at 4 o’clock ‘cos they’ll work round me.  I’ll be in an hour and a half before them and we’ll address a few things.  Ultimately we’ve already started planning for next season but on the other hand it’s a case of planning for a team that I feel is going to give us 100% commitment and effort at Doncaster on Tuesday night”.
