Match Preview: Cheltenham Town vs Bury

5 March 2019

Bury will play their last scheduled Tuesday night game of the season on Tuesday as they make their way to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium to play Cheltenham Town.

The Shakers head into the game on the back of a run of four consecutive away wins, and know that a win over the Robins will see them claim top spot in Sky Bet League Two.

Manager Ryan Lowe knows there are no easy games, and says Tuesday's will be no different: "We're expecting another tough game. We've analysed them and will have a plan to execute.

"Hopefully we'll do that, but it's a 90-minute battle for us and it's one we'll relish".

After scoring his eighteenth goal of the season in Saturday's 3-0 win over Macclesfield Town, Nicky Maynard was looking forward to another game coming along so soon afterwards: "When you win it's good to get a game as quickly as possible because you can keep the momentum going.

"Hopefully we can get another three points that will see us go top of the league".
