Match Preview: Swindon Town vs Bury

14 September 2018

Bury will take on Swindon Town in Wiltshire this weekend, looking to extend their recent record over the Robins.

The Shakers have won four out of the last five games between the two sides. The last game at the County Ground finished in a 2-1 win, with Hallam Hope grabbing both Bury goals.

Manager Ryan Lowe said that regardless of the opposition, if his side play their own game then they are a match for anyone: "I'm expecting a good game. Phil Brown is an experienced manager, he's got them where he wants them at the moment – I'm sure they're going to be there at the end of the season.

"It's a great club and a great proven manager, so we'll go there and respect them as we do everyone.

"Again, we'll worry about us and we'll totally focus on ourselves and what we can do. It's just another game; whether it's Swindon Town, MK Dons, Lincoln City, Morecambe; we'll do what we need to do and go about our own business".

Skipper Neil Danns added: "We've got to take every game as it comes. We can't dwell on the last 2 games, just like we didn't dwell on the Crawley game.
"We just have to go into every game believing in ourselves and the work that we're doing in training. Hopefully that will stand us in good stead and give us the foundations to keep building".
