Match preview: MK Dons vs Bury

16 March 2018

Bury will travel to Milton Keynes on Saturday knowing that returning home with all three points is crucial in the battle to beat the drop.

The Shakers have been left feeling frustrated after only collecting one point from the last two games, despite dominating both matches and creating enough chances to pick up the maximum available.

Ryan Lowe will take his team to one of his former haunts knowing it will be an entertaining but difficult game “They’ll be on a high after beating Rotherham, who are a good team.  Taking 3 points off Rotherham is a big plus for them.  We know what’s expected, they’re in a similar situation to us in terms of they need as many points as they possibly can, so it’s going to make for an interesting game.  We’ve got to go there and look to get 3 points.  If we can carry on with the performances that we’ve been doing but ultimately put the ball in the back of the net then hopefully we’ll be OK”.

On-loan Brighton midfielder Rohan Ince also stressed the importance of picking up the win: “It would be massive, massive 3 points.  I think every game now we need to win, so every game we’ve got to go with the same attitude no matter who we’re playing – it’s an important game”.
