Cameron Burgess returns to boost Bury against Bradford

Bury are boosted by the return of Cameron Burgess for the home clash with Bradford.

The on-loan Fulham defender has been away with Australia's Under-23 squad, missing the goalless draw with Fleetwood and the heavy 5-1 defeat to Oxford last time out.

Midfielder Reece Brown and full-back Craig Jones (hamstring) are back in training after injury but Saturday's game is likely to come too soon for the pair.

Goalkeeper Joe Murphy, the club's current number one, agreed a one-year deal with the Shakers this week to make his loan move from Huddersfield permanent.

Stuart McCall has been handed a double injury boost ahead of the trip to Gigg Lane.

The Bantams scraped past Walsall last time out to retain a spot in the top six, and have been boosted by the continued recoveries of Matthew Kilgallon and Alex Gilliead.

While neither player is expected to be fit to face Bury, both have stepped up their recovery plans and are expected to return before the end of the season.

Nicky Law made his return from a knee injury on Saturday, and could return to the starting line-up, while Nathaniel Knight-Percival also came through the game unscathed.
