Match preview: Shrewsbury Town vs Bury

20 April 2018

Bury will head to the Montgomery Waters Meadow to face Shrewsbury Town on Saturday on the back of an improved performance on Tuesday evening against Doncaster Rovers

The Shakers fought back from 2-0 down to earn a creditable 3-3 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Shakers boss Ryan Lowe had said he was only going to pick a side that would give him ‘100% effort and commitment’ – something he felt his side gave him: “Yeah, definitely, certainly.  Every one of the squad had a go tonight and we’ve got a just deserved point”.

Bury beat the then League leaders earlier in the season, under Lowe when he was Caretaker Manager, and he thinks that could prove to be an advantage this weekend “We’ve got one over on them already this season and I think that might be in the back of their minds.  We’ll respect Shrewsbury, we’ve got a lot of time for them, we’ll respect them but we’ll ultimately go there and look to put on a show like what we’ve done tonight and if we can get a point or 3 points, then that’s what we’ll be looking to do”.
