Match Preview: Bury v Cambridge United

15 March 2019

The Shakers are back in home action as we take on Cambridge United at the Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane.

Going into tomorrow's game Ryan Lowe knows that it won't be a walk in the park: "There are nine tough games to go. Cambridge are in good form, as they've had some good results. They're nowhere near finished and they'll want to keep working hard.

"They've got a good manager in place who'll make sure that they don't just think that they're on the beach already, as it's coming to that time of the season when there's not long left. For us, we can't take anything for granted.

"We should have won at their place, they went down to 10 men and they came back with some real fighting spirit, as we were 2-0 up. The lads were disappointed that they let the two goals in. We have made home into a bit of a fortress this season and hopefully that will continue."

Danny Mayor also spoke to the press ahead of the game: "It's just nine games to go and we can see the finishing line now. You won't always pass teams off the park, especially in this type of weather at the moment.

"Everyone thinks League Two is an easy division, but it isn't. Saturday will be a tough game as they're a team fighting for their lives. It's just about winning!"

Referee

Antony Coggins will take charge of his thirty-second game of the season. He has given out one-hundred-thirteen yellow cards along with three red ones to date.

He has taken charge of one previous game for both sides this season. He oversaw Bury's late defeat to MK Dons in August. As well as Cambridge United's 3-1 home win against Colchester.

The Official isn't scared of a card, producing eight yellows and a red in a goalless draw at Swindon when they hosted Mansfield. This season, he has produced at least one card in every game he's officiated.

We've Met Before

Bury have squared off with Cambridge United on twenty-eight occasions so far, the Shakers have been victorious on twelve of these compared to Cambridge who have nine wins against Saturday's hosts. This means that there has been seven draws between the sides.
