Bury 0 Crawley Town 2
90+2 - SUB - David Hunt replaces Nicky Adams
88 - SUB - Aiden O'Brien replaces Jamie Procter
83 - Andy Bishop heads a cross over
84 – SUB - Sergio Torres on Mike Jones
80 - SUB - David Healy replaces Nicky Ajose
Other than a few scrambles from corners, Bury are failing to put any real pressure on the Crawley goal.
They are seeing more of the ball, but not managing to do a great deal with it.
62 - Craig Jones just fails to connect with an Ethan Ebanks-Landell flick-on from a Joe Skarz cross.
Bury go 4-4-2 - Andy Bishop joins Craig Fagan up front while Ajose goes to the left, Craig Jones to the right and Steven Scumacher partners Mark Carrington in centre midfield.
56 - Andy Bishop replaceds Zac Thompson
55 - SUB - Craig Jones replaces Tom Soares
Nightmare day fort Bury continues as Tom Soares pulls up grabbing his hamstring.
49 - Fagan fails to connect with the ball properly after a Crawley clearance lands at his feet in the box but the Bury striker could only hit the bouncing ball into the floor.
47 - GOAL - Bury 0 Crawley 2 - Jamie Procter plants a towering header past Carson after getting on the end of a Mike Jones cross following a Crawley corner.
Crawley get the second half underway
Bury 0 Crawley Town 1 - boos ring out at half time after Jamie Procter's 17th-minute scuffed effort sends Kevin Blackwell's men into the break with plenty to think about.
42 - Fagan's backpost header goes wide after a deep cross from Thompson.
40 - Mike Jones's bobbling shot is easy for Carson.
39 - Zac Thompson's volley from the edge of the box is well-held by Paul Jones in the Crawley goal after the Bury midfielder had seized on a half-cleared corner.
The dry bobbly surface isn't helping, as Bury look unable to control the ball, or they may just be nervous in possession.
It's hard to tell, but I think Bury are trying to play with three at the back when they have the ball, as Worrall is bombing forward at ever opportunity. Not a bad idea, but it's leaving them exposed when they inevitably lose the ball.
Bury look to be unsure of their positions, with Thompson and Carrington just getting in each other's way.
32- YELLOW - Craig Fagan booked for bringing down Nicky Adams after Crawley broke following a promising Bury attack.
33 - Hearts in mouth then as the referee looked to have pointed to the spot before it became clear the linesman had flagged for offside against Crawley, rather than a foul.
Disjointed performance from Bury so far and the natives are getting restless - not that there are too many here today!
26 - Claims for a penalty waved away by referee Richard Clark - Nicky Ajose was being held at the back post by Matt Sadler as he attempted to get on the end of a Tom Soares cross.
27 - Procter whizzes a cross-shot across goal from byline on the edge of the six yard box.
Ebanks-Landell has gone from rock-solid on Tuesday night to a jibbering wreck today. A wild attempted clearance that skewed off his left foot just produced mass groans from the crowd.
Needs a calm head in there today as Crawley control possession and pass round Bury at will.
17 - Bury 0 CRAWLEY TOWN 1 - Jamie Procter scuffs an effort past Trevor Carson and into the bottom corner of the Bury goal after riding a wild lunge from Ethan Ebanks-Landell before sailing into the box to get his shot off.

10 - Searching ball forward from Ebanks-Landell from the back had David Worrall on the move, but it was too close to the keeper.
Bury are looking decidedly nervous in defence, despite Barker only going with Procter up front. New signing Jake Taylor is in the centre of a midfield four, with captain Dannie Bulman playing a holding role in a 4-1-4-1 formation, matching up with Bury's 4-2-3-1 system.
11 - Curling effort from Procter was always going high from 25 yards.
6 - Jake Taylor breaks the off-side trap but his volley on the turn inside the box is palmed away by Trevor Carson - should have buried that one.
4 - Great turn by Tom Soares sets him clear, but the midfielder's ball for striker Craig Fagan is well over-cooked and goes out for a goal-kick.
1 - A mistake by Ethan Ebanks-Landell almost lets Jamie Procter in but his strike is blocked and Bury clear the danger.
Pre-match huddle for Bury - they wound up for this one - as captain Steven Schumacher gets the match underway...
Team news - Crawley Town
Richie Barker has admitted that he expects a hostile reception today after returning to Gigg Lane for the first time since walking out on Bury to take over at Crawley five days before the start of the season.
He also has three former Bury players in his ranks - Nicky Adams and Mike Jones start on the flanks, while Lateef Elford-Alliyu is on the bench.
Bury winger Nicky Ajose also has links with both sides after starting the season on loan at Crawley.
Barker will be hoping to repeat the victory Crawley had against Bury in the reverse fixture, winning 3-2 at the Broadfield Stadium. However, he will have to do that with two debutants in the ranks - centre-back Connor Essam and striker Jake Taylor, who was brought in on loan from Reading on Thursday.
Team news - Bury
Kevin Blackwell has the luxury of naming an unchanged side from Tuesday's shock win at Swindon.
The Bury boss has resisted any temptation to recall Efe Sodje from his loan at Barrow as cover for the injured Stephane Zubar.
Mark Hughes, who could also have been brought back from a loan spell at Accrington, picked up a torn calf muscle on Tuesday.
As a result, Blackwell is sticking with the partnersip of young loan defenders Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Ashley Eastham at centre-back, while winger David Worrall continues to fill in at right-back in preference to Carl Regan.
The only change on the bench is the return of Andy Bishop, after missing the trip to Swindon with flu.
