THREE TO WATCH: BURY F.C

14 March 2017

Take a look at the potential threats in the ranks of Tuesday's opponents, Bury F.C.

#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. 

The forward 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.

#29 - George Miller - Striker
A product of the youth setup at Bury, the eighteen-year-old was drafted into the first-team during October and to date has scored five league goals.

With just the four starts, the striker has made a habit of scoring from the bench, scoring in consecutive fixtures against Scunthorpe United and Northampton Town in January.

The striker scored a 90th-minute winner against Chesterfield in February, after being introduced as a replacement for Tom Pope.

#11 - Tom Pope - Striker 
Now in his second season at Gigg Lane, the six-foot-three forward has been a regular feature this season, scoring seven goals in all competitions.

Since arriving from Port Vale in June 2015, Pope has played sixty games for Bury and is a regular partner to twenty-goal James Vaughan in attack. 

The striker found form quickly this season, scoring five goals in eleven games. More recently the striker was on the scoresheet in Bury's win over Coventry City.
