Match Preview: Bury v Huddersfield Town

10 July 2018

Tonight's game against Huddersfield Town will be Bury's first home game in a run of tough pre-season fixtures taking place at The Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane. Fellow top flighters Liverpool FC and Everton will also be visiting on the 14th and 18th of July respectively.

It will be David Wagner’s side’s first pre-season game ahead of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

According to Town's website, “It could be the first chance for Town supporters to get a glimpse of the new signings in action, although the quartet of players – including Ramadan Sobhi - who featured at the FIFA World Cup in Russia have not yet returned.”

For the Premier League side, it is their first game since they faced Arsenal on 13th May when Arsène Wenger ended his reign as Arsenal Manager by watching his side come away with a 1-0 victory at the John Smith's Stadium.

The game will be the second in the space of a few days where Ryan Lowe's side will be pitting themselves against a team at a higher level, after facing Rangers at Ibrox on Friday in Steven Gerrard’s first game in charge of the Scottish side.

Though it will be a scoreline that Ryan Lowe's Shakers will probably want to forget, it certainly won't be an occasion that they will forget any time soon; playing in front of 41,000 fans at one of the most famous stadiums in the country.

As with Friday's game, Shakers fans could see a team made up of some of last season's regulars, latest additions and trialists.

For boss Ryan Lowe, at this stage of pre-season, it will be less about the results and more about getting the squad off to a good start as they prep for the start of their 2018/19 league campaign. Ryan will be expecting a good workout for his side, as he looks to continue to build on their fitness levels.

 

We've Met Before

Bury faced Huddersfield Town in a pre-season friendly last summer, with the visitors leaving as 3-1 victors. Goals from Steve Mounié, Tom Ince and Elias Kachunga secured Town's victory. Bury's goal was scored by Jermaine Beckford after a back-pass from Jack Payne was taken advantage of by the striker who slotted home for the opening goal of the game.
