BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v BURY

19 April 2016

The Iron take on Bury on Tuesday and will hope to secure their third win on the bounce.

United beat already relegated Crewe at the weekend 3-2, with Luke Williams netting a brace and Hakeeb Adelakun also on target in the victory.

They will hope to extend their winning run against the Shakers.

The visitors won 1-0 against Swindon at the weekend and will be looking to finish the campaign strongly, following their promotion from League Two last season.

Graham Alexander will be hoping for another strong display.



The Iron will be without Jamie Ness for the visit of Bury after the midfielder sat out Saturday's game.

Luke Daniels returned to the squad at Crewe and will hope to be involved against Bury.

Scott Wiseman remains a long-term absentee and is out for the season, while Sean McAllister is stepping up his recovery from an ankle injury.



Striker Leon Clarke has been impressive since joining Bury at the start of the season, with his 18 goals making him the Shakers’ top scorer.

The 31-year-old will hope to continue his goal scoring form against one of his former clubs, having found the net recently against Doncaster.

Clarke had a spell with the Iron in 2012, scoring 11 goals in 15 appearances, just one of many prolific spells for the striker.

He started at Wolves, before joining Sheffield Wednesday, followed by a few brief spells at Queens Park Rangers, Swindon and Charlton.

After his spell at Charlton, he moved to Coventry where he enjoyed a prolific stint, finding the net 28 times in just 45 games.

That earned him a move to Wolves, where he helped them to the League One title, but he struggled to make the impact he would have hoped for.

He joined Bury in the summer following his release from Wolves and has recaptured the form that he has showed in previous spells in his career.



The two sides played out an entertaining 2-2 draw on Bury's last visit to Glanford Park in 2014.

The visitors came from behind twice to salvage a point as Tom Soares cancelled out Paddy Madden's opener.

Paul Hayes looked to have won it for the Iron, but Bury pounced late in injury time to salvage a point.

Danny Rose scored in the fifth minute of time added on to rescue a dramatic point in the League Two clash.

The Iron went on to get promoted in that campaign, finishing second, while Bury ended the season in mid-table.
