Match Preview: Crewe Alexandra v Bury

12 October 2018

Ryan Lowe’s side head to Cheshire on Saturday looking to continue their recent good form.

With just one defeat from the last seven League outings, the Shakers go into the weekend's game 5th in the form table after a string of good performances.

Bury head into the game having not lost on their travels in the League since the opening month of the season, and have picked up 7 points from a possible 9 over recent matches on the road.

Lowe takes his side to a former stomping ground but wants the focus to be on the players: "I look forward to every Saturday now that it's my team and I've put my stamp on it. I chomp at the bit – I can't wait for Fridays and Saturdays because I love it!

"I'm going back to an old club who I have massive respect for, and everyone associated with the football club. The players, the current staff; I've had three good spells there and I always want them to do well.

"It's not about Ryan Lowe going back to his former club, it's about two teams looking to get three points. That's the way we'll look at it and after Crewe we'll chalk that off and move on to Leicester and after that we'll move on to Notts County."
