Match Preview

Barker waits before Picken squad Bury caretaker boss Richie Barker will assess the fitness of defender Phil Picken ahead of the home clash with Lincoln. The right-back succumbed to a hamstring injury and was substituted after just nine minutes of last weekend`s 2-0 home win over Barnet. He was replaced by Kyle Bennett, who could now earn a starting role should Picken fail to recover. Defender Efe Sodje and midfielder Damien Mozika both serve the second game of three-match bans, so Steven Schumacher and Ben Futcher should again start. Bury will again be without striker Andy Bishop, who has undergone surgery on his left knee and is not expected to return until pre-season. Bishop's absence aside, the Shakers have no other injury worries as they look to take another step towards automatic promotion. Defenders Adam Watts and Cian Hughton are expected to be fit for Lincoln. Watts missed the draw against Crewe due to a sickness bug while Hughton is also due to return to the squad after boss Steve Tilson described him as "not mentally right" to play at Gresty Road. The news is a welcome boost for Tilson after on-loan duo Stephen Hunt and Julian Kelly returned to their parent clubs. "Adam and Cian will be fine for this weekend, while Mustapha is also coming along nicely," said Tilson. "There's no doubt I need some extra bodies, especially after Julian and Stephen went back. "Defensively we are a bit short on numbers so to have them two available will help us out a great deal." Winger Mustapha Carayol could also come back into contention after missing the last two matches with a hamstring injury.

Match Report

Lees header enough for Shakers Tom Lees scored the only goal of the game as Bury moved a step closer towards automatic promotion to League One with victory over relegation-threatened Lincoln. The normally rampant Shakers attack fashioned just two clear-cut chances in a stilted first-half performance. The first came after 10 minutes when terrific skill from Kyle Bennett put in Nicky Ajose and his shot flew inches wide. The second, midway through the half, was a free-kick from Steven Schumacher that looked goalbound until it deflected off the Lincoln wall. Indeed, the Imps could and should have taken the lead themselves shortly afterwards when Tom Kilbey's shot was well saved by Cameron Belford. It was almost inevitable that the goal that gave Bury their victory - and consigned Lincoln to a sixth defeat in seven games - would come from an unusual source. And it was central defender Lees who provided it with a firm header past Elliott Parish from a Peter Sweeney corner 10 minutes after the break.
