One minute of added time

38 - GOAL - Bury 0 SCUNTHORPE UNTIED 1 - Sam Winnall taps in from close range after getting on the end of a low centre from Terry Hawkridge.

34 - Nolan cuts out a Mayor cross for a corner.
30 - Mayor goes on another mazy run but fails to come up with an end pass or shot. Story of his half.
24 - Terry Hawkridge sees his left-footed shot tipped on to the post by Brian Jensen after the right winger was given time and space to cut in from the flank.
21 - San Winnall curls a free-kick over.
20 - Chris Sedgwick gets under the ball to sky a shot at the back post following yet more good play from Danny Mayor.
12 - Fantastic interception from Iron left-back Eddie Nolan to flick the ball behind with Chris Sedgwick waiting to tap in Danny Nardiello's low cross at the back post.
11 - Surging run into the box from Danny Mayor, but his shot was blocked.
Gareth Roberts lines up in the unfamiliar position of right-back, with the left-sided player brought back as cover for the injured Shaun Beeley.
The game is under way here at the JD...
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.
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.
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.
