Match Preview: Bury v Mansfield Town

5 October 2018

Bury will face Mansfield Town on Saturday looking to get back to winning ways at the Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane, after slipping to a narrow defeat against Carlisle United two weeks ago.

The Shakers were dominant, but couldn't find a way past a resolute Carlisle defence.

In the last week, Ryan Lowe's side have covered almost 800 miles as they picked up a win and a draw against Colchester United and Northampton Town respectively.

Lowe knows that there are no easy games, and this weekend is no exception: "Flitcroft will have his team ready, he'll have them fired up for it, same way we'll have ours.

"It's another good team, another good manager, another set of good players. We know every game we're playing is a tough ask, but, if we can do what we've been doing of late and put more of our chances away, then hopefully we can come away with all three points".
