Manager Comments –
Justin Edinburgh - “I was critical of myself and the players of the way we approached the game [at Stevenage] and our attitude. That was corrected on Tuesday night, we addressed it and moved on and look forward to Bury."
David Flitcroft - "The lads believe they can beat any team we play. I send out that message to this group, to never feel the opposition is superior and to make sure they back each other up in everything they do."
The last time the two sides met was on February 19, 2011 when a 1-1 draw was played out at MEMS Priestfield Stadium. Curtis Weston put the hosts in front but Ryan Lowe grabbed an equaliser 12 minutes from time to share the points.
In total the teams have met on 50 occasions – Bury edge the head to head stats with 21 wins to 19.
