The game is under way here at the JD...

3:00pm

The players come out here at the JD for what is expected to  be a tough test.

Scunthorpe go into the game in third place in League Two - unbeaten in five matches since Russ Wilcox took over following the sacking of Brian Laws.

Wilcox was awarded the permanent job on Christmas Eve after guiding the Iron to four wins and a draw.

He goes into this game knowing that Scunthorpe could claim top spot with a win, although Bury did do the double over the Iron last season as both clubs were relegated from League One.  

2:29pm

Team news

None of Bury's three big injury doubts heading into this Boxing Day clash have made it, with Tom Soares (hamstring) missing his second consecutive match and Craig Jones (groin) and Shaun Beeley (hamstring) unable to recover from problems picked up in defeat at Plymouth on Saturday.

Former club captain Gareth Roberts comes in for Beeley, playing his first senior game for the Shakers since being dropped following a poor performance at Dagenham & Redbridge at the end of September.

Harrad returns up front instead of Jones as manager David Flitcroft reverts to a 4-4-2 formation after playing just one striker at Home Park.

Squad players Euan Holden and Richard Hinds return to the bench, while youngster Scott Harrison takes his place amongst the substitutes for his first taste of first-team action since joining on loan from Sunderland last month.

 

2:18pm

Full line-ups

BURY: Jensen; Roberts, Cameron, Edjenguele, Howell; Sedgwick, Procter, Miller, Mayor; Harrad, Nardiello.

Subs: Hinds, Forrester, Grimes, Holden, Harrison, Charles-Cook, Walker.

SCUNTHORPE UNITED: Slocombe; Ribiero, McAllister, Mirfin, Canavan, Burton, Hawkridge, Nolan, Syers, Winnall, Williams.

Subs: Iwelumo, Esajas, Severn, Waterfall, Adelakun, Godden, Boyce.

Nobody can question the fans for the last 30 or so minutes. We urged them on and we got a deserved draw. Having said that, the two goals given to Winall were very, very poor defending. The battling was impressive but certainly Messrs. Flits and Co have , I REPEAT have to bring in defenders who are not afraid to clear a ball and for god's sake put some their personal bodies at stake to defend.

Considering Scunny were third top and on a run.....hate to concede this but a decent point based upon where we though the game was going.

Let's knock York around on Sunday and get out of the belly of the beast.

Not a great deal of difference between the sides yesterday I thought and for the first time in ages, I actually saw some real positives. Sedgewick again, Mayor, both linking nicely with Miller and Nards up front. Keep that up against York and we shall be the victors.

Sadly easy life is correct. Although I thought Roberts played ok at right back for a left foooted player, the defenders cannot seem to defend. And as for Harrad up front, he proved yet again once and for all that he couldn't hit a barn door from 3 yards. Sad but true. Swap him for Nards or give him away. He is actually taking up a valuable space in the team when we need goals and 2 up front. I have yet to see what Harrad does. He can't pass it, shoot on target, has no speed, does no defending or chasing back....Apart from that...? Please help as I am at a loss to see what he contributes to this team. Central defenders are in the same boat for me too!

Shaun Harrad hasn't been a success at our club for three reasons, the constant conveyor belt of different managers who haven't fancied him.

He is not a team player never has been never will be,his style of play if you can call it that doesn't suit Bury fc's style of play.

He doesn't opperate in the same way as Nards by creating something from n othing,if the ball doewsn't come to him on a plate then he's not going to break sweat for the team.

If we can't win games at home we have got absolutely no chance of staying up.

Come January we will need to win 7/10 games at home if we have any chance of surviving and given our absymal away form the future looks grim in tetms of gaining much needed wins.

I'm sorry but to play a left footer at right back is complete madness and especially as the lad is not fit and has been inactive for over 3 months.

Only Sedgey,Miller & Nards came out with any credit after this result.
