Futcher doubtful for visit of Cobblers
Bury boss Alan Knill could again be without defender Ben Futcher when his side host npower League Two rivals Northampton.
The centre-back is rated as 50-50 after sustaining an ankle injury during pre-season which has forced him to miss the opening three games.
Knill is hoping to finally unveil former Chester midfielder Damien Mozika with international clearance expected to be granted ahead of the Cobblers clash.
Knill has no other new injury and suspension concerns and believes his side are heading in the right direction following last weekend`s 2-1 win at Oxford.
Knill presided over a major overhaul of his squad during the summer but he insisted: "We've only been together eight weeks now so it is work in progress and I am quite sure that we can get better."
Northampton manager Ian Sampson will name an unchanged side.
The Cobblers have yet to score in League Two this season but Sampson is poised to keep faith with the strike partnership of Billy McKay and Steve Guinan.
That means former Darlington striker Tadhg Purcell will again be left on the bench along with Courtney Herbert.
Goalkeeper Chris Dunn has returned to light training in the past few days but will not return from his ankle injury at Gigg Lane so on-loan Spurs keeper Oscar Jansson will keep his place.
Winger Liam Davis remains out with his ankle injury but should be back within 10 days but defender Craig Hinton is on the sidelines after a setback in his recovery from a knee problem.
Cobblers wait goes on
Northampton remain winless in League Two after Bury came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw at Gigg Lane.
Steve Guinan gave the visitors the lead with a 33rd-minute penalty but a point was the least Bury deserved and substitute David Worrall claimed a 69th-minute equaliser.
The Shakers looked sharp early on with Ryan Lowe testing Oscar Jansson while Mike Jones volleyed narrowly wide.
The visitors replied with Guinan volleying over from Billy McKay's cross before Ryan Gilligan fed Guinan, only for Cameron Belford to rush out and block his shot.
But Guinan then claimed his first goal in 19 games after Joe Skarz bundled the Cobblers striker over for a soft penalty.
Jansson denied Lowe a quick equaliser from Andy Bishop's through-ball while Bishop headed wide from Lowe's cross after the break.
But Bury then made a double substitution with Bishop and Jones coming off for Lenell John-Lewis, who soon fired wide, and Worrall, who levelled the scores moments later.
Haworth fed Lowe, who fired against a post after going round Jansson, but Worrall was there to put the rebound into an empty net.
Bury pushed for a winner but the nearest they went was when Lowe dragged a late effort wide.
