Match Preview – Bury vs Northampton

Last Updated: 21/04/19 3:46pm

Bury boss Ryan Lowe could be persuaded to make changes for the Sky Bet League Two clash with Northampton.

Callum McFadzean was unavailable for the 3-1 defeat at Newport and could miss out against on Monday. Neil Danns, Caolan Lavery and Gold Omotayo, who came off the bench during the 3-1 defeat at Newport on Friday, could be among the changes.

The promotion-chasing Shakers have recorded just one win in their last five matches and sit just outside the automatic places, one point behind MK Dons.

Northampton’s Shaun McWilliams could be set to make his return. The midfielder is back in training and was included in Friday’s match squad against Macclesfield, but has yet to feature following his minor hamstring injury.

Keith Curle could make changes to his starting line-up, with George Cox having only just returned following an ankle ligament injury he sustained in January, and two matches in four days could be too much for the on-loan left-back. The Cobblers boss has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Monday’s fixture.
