Preview: Bolton v Bury

Bolton Wanderers
vs.
Bury

Macron Stadium

18 April

8.00pm

Feeling nervous yet?

A massive game awaits tomorrow night as struggling Bury are in town for a local derby. We know two wins from three means we go up regardless of what others do. But Fleetwood's win mean they sit just one point behind us now, so we need to make sure we don't leave the Macron at 10pm dissecting a third game without a win.

Vital Quotes:

"There also appears to be some misapprehension that we don't win games without Gary Madine which I don't want to start having a psychological effect on the squad and supporters in the next few games"

Ken Anderson in what feels like his hourly programme notes. It already is affecting the fans.

Bolton Wanderers Team News:

Gary Madine is still doubtful, but Andy Taylor has been passed fit. Apart from those two it will largely be the same team. It's just a case of who drops out if midfield if we do have Madine.

Player to watch: Andy Taylor

It'll be good to have him back. Dean Moxey has been hit and miss at left back, and Taylor will provide extra defensive solidity.

Bury Team News:

Tom Walker will be unavailable, as he is ours. Bury are expected to play the same side that lost to Rochdale on Thursday night.

Player to watch: James Vaughan

Without his goals, the Shakers will be have been down a while ago. Simple as that.

Match Facts & Stats

Bolton won 2-0 at Gigg Lane in October, meaning victory would ensure a first league double in 91 years.

Bury have one goal in the last five games, which they have failed to win any of them

Match Prediction:

2-1 to Bolton. Please!
