Match Preview: Yeovil Town vs Bury

4 January 2019

Bury make the long trip to Somerset this weekend for their first away encounter of 2019.

Ryan Lowe's side came from behind to secure a 3-1 victory over Crewe Alexandra on New Year's Day, a result that leaves the Shakers on the verge of the automatic places in Sky Bet League Two.

The Shakers have picked up seven points from the festive period to leave them within just four points of second place in the Sky Bet League Two table.

When asked about tomorrow's opponents being bottom of the home form table, Callum McFadzean said: "Yes it does make the game harder, but it's pressure that we've got to deal with. It's one of those games that we've got to go into and not really think about their home form - it's something that they'll be thinking about themselves. We just need to go there and play our best and take it from there.

"The fans have been excellent all season. I know that it's been a bit frustrating for them over the last few games but hopefully, we can put in performances like we have been doing and get cracking again. It's a new month, and it's a new year, and we've given the fans a great start, so hopefully, we can continue that."

Manager Ryan Lowe said that despite Yeovil's current form, it's just another game for his side: "They're going through a bit of a sticky patch at the moment, but Darren is a good manager, he's well-known in this league; the sticky patch doesn't mean anything. They're down at the wrong end of the table for me, as they've got some good players, a good young manager, and great support.

"We've done our homework on them and we know what to expect, but as I always say, regardless of whether a team is at the top end of the table or the bottom end of the table, every game is a tough game, and that's not going to be any different against Yeovil.

"We're going about our work and what we need to do and I'm sure that Yeovil will do the same; the manager will make sure of that. 8 wins out of 11 games against them is a good stat or a good omen, whatever you call them, but you know me by now, I don't take anything for granted and I certainly don't let my players do that either.

"I'm looking forward to it. It's another game, and I'm looking forward to the next twenty now to see where we can go to."
