90+2 - Harewood loses his marker but loops a header tamely into the hands of Lainton.


Four minutes of added time to play


88 - Hussey heads behind to concede a corner.


73 - GOAL - Hartlepool 0 BURY 2 - Danny Rose scores just six minutes into his second debut for the club, bursting clear after a slip by Matthew Bates before calmly rounding the Pools keeper to slot home.

67 - SUB - Rose on for Lowe.


65 - Lowe slices a shot wide.

66 - James wins a corner after his shot is deflected wide.


62 - Franks looked to have brought Pools level with a looping header back across goal but Harewood inexplicably chested the ball into the net and the goal was disallowed for offside.


59 - Hartlepool looked odds on to equalise as James got in behind the defence attempted to roll a pass to the unmarked Harewood to strike it home but Mills popped up with a timely interception.

Attendance: 3,246 (244 visiting)



56 - Appeals for a Pools penalty after James hits a shot against Mills in the box.


54 - YELLOW - Etuhu - dragging back Walker as the Pools midfielder ran through.


52 - James flashes a low ball across the Bury six yard box.

52 - Lowe hits the stantion of post and crossbar with a curling right-foot shot.


51 - YELLOW - McNulty - charging down the keeper.


49 - Soares heads over from a Hussey cross.


Ryan Lowe ran his heart out on Tuesday night but is continuing that high intensity level today. Great energy from the 35-year-old front man.


Both sides unchanged with Bury hoping to pick up where they left off in the first half. Looked really comfortable and rarely threatened.

45+1 - YELLOW - Hussey for a strong challenge on James.


41 - Lowe complains to the ref after Franks charges down his set-piece, taking the edge off as it loops into the hands of the Pool keeper.


41 - Adams wins a free kick in a central area 25 yards out.


37 - Lainton does well to palm away a Parnaby shot but the ball goes straight to the feet of Harewood, who blazes over with the goal at his mercy.


34 - McNulty and Hussey deal well with a Hartlepool free-kick into the box, eventually heading it back to Lainton.


Harewood powers Mills off the ball but his cross only finds Cameron at the back post. 

Hartlepool have been in good position but their final delivery has made life easier for the Bury defence.

Holden was in behind with the Bury backline all calling for an offside flag that never came but his cross was straight at Mills.

The Shakers then broke down Holden's side and scored.  


18 - GOAL - Hartlepool 0 BURY 1 - Danny Nardiello heads home from close range after Ryan Lowe chipped a cross from the right to the back post.


14 - Cameron heads a Hussey cross wide.


9 - Nardiello heads wide from a Hussey cross



Team news

Kelvin Etuhu comes in for his competitive debut for the Shakers in one of only two changes from the starting line-up in Tuesday night's 3-2 extra time defeat at Bolton in the Capital One Cup.

Chris Sedgwick drops down to the bench to make way for Etuhu as Bury manager David Flitcroft sticks with the same 3-4-1-2 formation that bamboozled Wanderers.

The switch from 4-4-2 was forced on Flitcroft to a certain extent after he lost right-back Craig Jones to a sciatic nerve problem, and Jones remains sidelined today.

Danny Rose, however, has bolstered the Shakers' attacking options on the bench after signing from Barnsley on an emergency loan yesterday.

The 20-year-old striker joined with a view to a permanent move and is sure to see some game time today after both Ryan Lowe and Danny Nardiello ran their socks off in defeat at the Macron Stadium in midweek.

Forward James Poole, who signed last week after being released by Hartlepool in the summer, is also among the substitutes, as is first-choice keeper Shwan Jalal, who has made way for Rob Lainton in the starting line-up after picking up a groin strain at Bolton.

Tommy Miller is a familiar face in the Hartlepool starting XI, returning to his hometown club after being released by Bury in the summer.     


Full line-ups

BURY: Lainton; Cameron, Mills, McNulty; Soares, Etuhu, Tutte, Hussey; Adams; Nardiello, Lowe.

Subs: Jalal, Rose, Mayor, Sedgwick, Thompson, Widdowson, Poole.

HARTLEPOOL UNITED: Flinders, Duckworth, Bates, Austin, Holden, Parnaby, Miller, Walker, Franks, James, Harewood.

Subs: Dixon, Collins, Woods, Brobbel, Hawkins, Richards, Smith.


Good afternoon from Victoria Park.

We expect the teams in the next five minutes, but the latest news is that goalkeeper Shwan Jalal is currently undergoing a warm-up on the pitch.

Youth team keeper Jack Ruddy is also here, possibly as back-up if first choice stopper has not fully recovered from the groin strain that forced him off at half-time in Tuesday's Capital One Cup defeat at Bolton.

Rob Lainton may well start, whatever the outcome of Jalal's fitness test, although he looks to be fine.
