Match Preview


Knill to shake up squad

Bury boss Alan Knill could hand debuts to several players when his side begin their campaign at home to Port Vale.

The Shakers have enjoyed a profitable recruitment drive during the summer and this week added Tom Lees, Phil Picken, Kyle Bennett and Lenell John-Lewis to their squad.

Defender Lees, 20, arrived on a six-month loan deal from Leeds and will boost Knill`s options at centre-half and right-back.

Fellow defender Picken, promising attacking midfielder Bennett and striker John-Lewis have all signed 12-month contracts.

Joe Skarz, Peter Sweeney, Steven Schumacher, Andy Howarth, Andrai Jones, Krishnan Patel, Richie Branagan and Zach Rothwell could also make their debuts.

Knill's only serious injury concern surrounds defender Ben Futcher, who is rated as 50-50 after sustaining an ankle injury during pre-season.

Tommy Fraser is facing a battle to be fit for Vale.

The Vale captain is nursing a badly bruised shin picked up during pre-season and could well be forced to make his return in Tuesday`s Carling Cup tie at Championship side QPR.

Winger Lewis Haldane will definitely miss out having contracted blood poisoning following an infected insect bite to an ankle, ruling him out for a further couple of weeks.

Defender Ritchie Sutton will also miss the first six games of the new season due to a suspension which carries over from last term.

Sutton saw red for former club Nantwich in the final game of 2009/10 - his fourth dismissal of the campaign - and he will not be eligible to play until mid-September.

Summer signing Justin Richards is expected to line up alongside the prolific Marc Richards in attack, forming a partnership which could potentially strike gold in the fourth tier this term.

Match Report

Valiant effort earns points Port Vale showed their promotion credentials by kicking off their campaign with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Bury. The Valiants, looking to build on last season's 10th-placed finish, claimed a deserved victory through a rare goal by left-back Lee Collins in the 66th minute. Bury have undergone a summer overhaul after missing out on the play-offs last term and fielded six debutants, while summer signings Stuart Tomlinson, Gary Roberts and Justin Richards started for Vale. New Bury winger Andy Haworth scuffed an early shot before whipping in a fine cross for Andy Bishop, whose header struck Adam Yates before Gareth Owen cleared. A superb Richards then laid off for Sean Rigg, who released Roberts to fire over from a wide angle, before Bishop forced a fine low save from Tomlinson. A lively first half continued with Rigg and Anthony Griffith going close with long-range strikes, and Vale started the second half strongly, with Yates having a cross deflected against the crossbar. Doug Loft then turned a Rigg cross agonisingly wide and Vale broke the deadlock as Richards knocked down a Roberts corner for Collins to lash home from 10 yards. Richards then headed wide from a Yates cross and the closest Bury came to an equaliser was when Ryan Lowe headed wide from Bishop's cross.
