Match Preview for Bury v Cheltenham Town

27 November 2018

Bury host Cheltenham Town at the Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane this evening looking to get on the winning trail.

Goals in quick succession by Jay O'Shea and Will Aimson in Saturday's draw at Cambridge United secured their 12th away point from a possible 21, from their latest outings. Just the one loss mars an otherwise impressive away record of late, with 3 wins and 3 draws the other results.

The Shakers will be looking to take advantage of being back on home soil. A third of the Shakers' home League games this season have ended in convincing 4-0 wins and Ryan Lowe will no doubt be wanting to see his side pick-up maximum points again.

The Bury boss was frustrated with settling for the one point on Saturday, and was keen for his side to learn from their downfalls: "This game has gone now, but we won't dismiss the mistakes and the other areas we should have done better in.

"We'll always highlight them, because we've become a good team, but we want to be a very good team, then a brilliant team. To get to where we want to get to, we've got to make sure we analyse what we do, whether it's mistakes or not keeping the ball as well as we should or headers – everything.

"We'll make sure we eradicate that and move onto Cheltenham".

Will Aimson, who scored on Saturday and was named in the Football League Paper's Team of the Week, was in full agreement when it was suggested that a home game was a good opportunity to get back to winning ways: "Yeah, 100%. No games are easy in this league, we've seen that today. We'll be expecting a tough game on Tuesday night back at home, but hopefully we'll re-group and hopefully take the win".
