Match Preview

Bishop missing for Bury Bury boss Alan Knill will again be without striker Andy Bishop for the home clash with Bradford. The highly-rated forward has been struggling with tendonitis in recent weeks and has missed the Shakers' last seven games. Midfielder Damien Mozika is rated as 50-50 following a challenge by Marvin Morgan during Saturday`s 3-1 win at Aldershot which saw the Shots man red carded. Knill has an otherwise full-strength squad and looks set to continue with on-loan Stockport goalkeeper Owain fon Williams between the posts. The Wales international made his debut in Saturday`s win and Knill said: "Owain Fon Williams only came in on Thursday but he did okay. "He looked a little rusty because he's not played a competitive game for a while, but it's to be expected." Bradford could be without striker James Hanson if their appeal against his dismissal on Saturday is unsuccessful. Hanson was sent off following an altercation in Saturday's home win over Oxford with visiting defender Jake Wright and could start a three-match ban, so Jason Price, on loan from Carlisle, is on stand-by to partner Omar Daley, currently operating in a central role, if the appeal fails. Centre-half Shane Duff is still out with an Achilles problem, but manager Peter Taylor does not have any other new injury or suspension problems following his side's biggest win of the season on Saturday, 5-0 against Oxford. David Syers and Louis Moult both staked their claim for a return to the starting line-up with late goals, but Taylor is not expected to make any unforced changes as his side chase a fourth win in five league matches. Lenny Pidgeley will continue in goal after making his debut last weekend, while Michael Flynn (hernia), Simon Ramsden (calf), Gareth Evans (fractured wrist) and Robbie Threlfall (back) remain sidelined.

Match Report

Spot-on Daley downs Shakers Resurgent Bradford hung on in atrocious conditions to beat Bury 1-0 and secure a fourth win in their last five games. Omar Daley scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot after 30 minutes. Bury keeper Owain Fon Williams brought down Jason Price and Daley converted the spot-kick for his third goal in two matches. Bury were dominant early on and Mike Jones drove a crisp shot inches over the crossbar. At the other end, Fon Williams was superb in beating away a point-blank header from Price. Lenny Pidgeley did well to save Steven Schumacher's free-kick as Bury responded to going behind. David Worrall went close for the hosts shortly after the restart before Ryan Lowe crashed in a low shot which hit the outside of a post in the 64th minute. Bradford almost made it 2-0 late on when substitute James Hanson was thwarted by a brilliant Fon Williams save.
