BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v BURY

6 January 2017

United play their second home match of 2017, when they take on Bury at Glanford Park this Saturday.

After picking up a point against Peterborough United on Monday, Graham Alexander’s side will be determined to take all three this time out.

However, the Shakers will be striving for the points too, as they look to climb the Sky Bet League One table.



Iron boss Alexander revealed that David Mirfin is getting closer to a return to action, with the defender now back out on the grass.

There was also positive news on Conor Townsend, who continues to make good strides after a recent operation.



The two teams met back in October at Gigg Lane, with the away side prevailing in a 2-1 victory.

Scott Wiseman had put the visitors ahead on the stroke of half-time, but Tom Soares levelled things up for Bury just before the hour mark.

Josh Morris settled matters though with another moment of brilliance, as he curled the ball home from distance.
