MATCH PREVIEW: BURY vs BRISTOL ROVERS

14 March 2017

We take a look at Tuesday's opponents in SkyBet League One, Bury.

Team News: Rovers are without defender Peter Hartley, who remains sidelined with a long-term injury.


Darrell’s View: “It’s just another game for me [regardless of league position], we know there will be challenges, we respect them fully but it feels like I’m doing the same interview every week - it’s going to be a tough game. 


“We’re playing a team that have a lot to play for but it’s 11 men vs 11 men out there and we obviously want to come out on top.”


Opposition: Bury find themselves in 19th place in SkyBet League One, with a points tally of forty-one from thirty-seven games so far this campaign. In their last ten outings, Bury have picked up four wins, four draws and two defeats, which included a three-game winning streak with victories over Chesterfield, Charlton and Coventry.


:#12 - James Vaughan - Striker The twenty-eight-year-old striker is Bury's leading goalscorer this campaign, with twenty goals to his name in all competitions.


The forward arrived at Gigg Lane on a free transfer in the summer and was quick to open his account for the Shakers, with his first goal for the club coming in his first league game of the season against Walsall. Vaughan bagged four goals in Bury's victory over Peterborough United back in January, scoring an impressive seven goals in three games that month.


Since the start of 2017 Vaughan has found the net on ten occasions, including goals against Coventry and Gillingham in recent weeks.


Last Time Out: Rovers secured an impressive 4-2 win against the Shakers at the Memorial Stadium in December 2016 with Rory Gaffney, Ollie Clarke and Peter Hartley on the scoresheet.
