Match Preview: Port Vale vs Bury

26 October 2018

Bury will head to Burslem on Saturday looking to further extend their impressive away record.

Ryan Lowe's side haven't lost on their travels since the opening month of the season, and have picked up eight points from the twelve available in their last four outings.

The Shakers are currently unbeaten in six League games – seven including the Checkatrade win over Leicester City - and arguably boast the most exciting players currently in League Two.

Danny Mayor has picked up the Goal of the Month trophy for his second goal against Grimsby – although either of his efforts could have been nominated. Nicky Maynard has signed a contract extension after a blistering start to his Shakers' career, with five goals in as many starts.

Lowe knows that Port Vale will provide a test for his side: "You can't take them lightly. They've gone to Stevenage and played really well and got a good point on the road there.

"I went and watched them in the Checkatrade against Burton and they've got some good players, so we won't take anything for granted.

"We'll go to Port Vale and show them respect as we do with every team. Again, it's two football clubs locking horns, two sets of players trying to get points and two managers trying to get points. We'll do our homework, but we'll just worry about us".
