Match Preview: Bury vs Fleetwood Town

13 November 2018

The Shakers face Fleetwood Town in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday evening, knowing that avoiding defeat will be enough to secure their passage to the knockout stages of the competition.

A brace from Dominic Telford last time out against Leicester City U21's was enough to secure all three points for ten-man Bury, following Callum McFadzean's 15th minute dismissal.

That result saw Ryan Lowe's side move to third in the table, just one point behind Leicester but with a better goal difference and with a game in hand. Should Bury draw tonight's game, then they would progress on goal difference at the expense of the Foxes – regardless of the result of the penalty shoot-out that would then follow.

Speaking after the 5-0 win over Dover Athletic in the FA Cup, Lowe's attention was immediately turned to Tuesday's game: "We've just said to the lads in there, get your preparations right tonight and tomorrow, and come in expecting to play when we name the team on Monday.

"We want to win every game, we know it's going to be tough along the way. For us, Dover's gone, the FA Cup's gone and we move onto the Checkatrade and we want to win as many games as we possibly can."
