Bury 0 Stevenage 0
44 - YELLOW - Steve Beleck goes into the referee's notebook for a late challenge on Schumacher.
39 - Craig Jones skies a shot from eight yards out with the goal at his mercy. The ball bounced back to the midfielder after Bishop poked a shot against Arnold, the Stevenage keeper, from the six yard line. A horrible miss with Arnold on his backside.
Great charging down from Schumacher. Bury's top scorer for the season will have been gutted not to take his tally to 11 from the spot, but he's doing his best to make amends.
30 - Schumacher fires a volley just over from a bouncing ball 30 yards out after Andy Bishop had nodded the ball past the last defender Mark Roberts.
26 - Lopez tries his luck from range but Carson gets his body behind the bobbling 25-yard effort.
20 - SAVED - Schumacher's weak side foot shot is palmed away by Steve Arnold
18 - Penalty for Bury as Steven Schumacher is brought down in the box.
16 - Lucas Akins balloons a shot on the turn, just inside the Bury box.
One other bit of team news - there is no place in the squad for David Healy, who was roundly booed when he came on to replace Craig Jones late in the game on Saturday.
12 - Decent cross-field ball from Craig Fagan almost plays in David Worrall on the left, but David Gray just manages to cut out the danger.
Sodje fluffs a back header from just inside the Bury half, but Trevor Carson scampers out of goal to clear.
Bury's defence look understandably edgy, with both Ashley Eastham and Ethan Ebanks-Landell playing out of position.
Eastham has switched from the right to the left of the centre back pairing, while Ebanks-Landell, who has been playing on the left of central defence, is at right-back tonight.
5 - Dani Lopez wraps his foot round the loose ball in the box, but his shot hits the side netting.
Sodje is getting a cheer with every towering header and strong tackle he puts in. There's no doubting where the fans' loyalties lie.
Bury get the game underway...
Chants of "Sodje, Sodje" ring out from the sparse crowd here at Gigg Lane as the fans prepare for kick-off.
Let's hope his return brings about a change of fortune for the side after four straight defeats.
Kevin Blackwell has made one change from the side that lost 2-1 at home to Colchester United on Saturday - and it's a big one.
Shakers legend Efe Sodje, who has spent the last month on loan at Barrow, has been drafted into the starting line-up to partner Ashley Eastham in the centre of defence.
Right-back Carl Regan has dropped down to the bench, with centre-back Ethan Ebanks-Landell switching into his position.
