F/T: Bury 1 Southend 1
90- Timlin and then Corr hit the woodwork for Southend
85 - Sebastian Carole on for Troy Hewitt
78 - Barry Corr on for David Martin
76 - A Hewitt shot is deflected just wide, but the Bury striker would have done well to leave Gregg Wylde's pull-back as he had team-mates running in in a better position to bury the cross.
71 – Bury come under a sustained spell of pressure, but Southend fail to create a scoring a opportunity.
72 – At the other end, Smith gets down well to his right to hold on to a low, bobbling Wylde shot.
65 – Smith can only parry Wylde’s fiercely struck 30-yard strike, with Creswell covering to head the rebound behind for a corner.
Kevan Hurst then has an effort blocked at the other end and Micahel Timlim skies a shot over the bard from the resulting corner.
67 – Southend sub – Elliot Benyon replaces Freddy Eastwood
63 - Matt Doherty hits the side-netting with a neat strike from inside the Southend box, The Bury right-back had ventured forward from the back, sharing passes with winger Gregg Wylde.
57 – Sweeney curls the resulting free-kick straight at Smith.
56 - Mark Phillips is booked for a foul on Lenell John-Lewis as the Bury striker races towards the Southend box.
51 - Tomlin hits a weak bobbling shot straight at Carson from just inside the Bury box.
48 – Great instinctive finger-tip save from Paul Smith denies an acrobatic Troy Hewitt volley from close range.
46 - David Martin has the first chance of the second half, firing a 25-yard shot just wide.
K/O: Bury get the second half under way with no changes to either side...
H/T: Bury 1 Southend 1
43 – David Worrall is booked for a sliding challenge on Marc Laird.
41 - GOAL - Bury 1 SOUTHEND 1 - Gavin Tomlin made a mockery of Bury's defence to put the Shrimpers back level with a virtuoso goal. The young Southend striker went past two Shakers defenders after taking the ball to the byline before beating Carson at his near post with a low driven shot.
32 - GOAL - BURY 1 Southend 0 - Matt Doherty strokes home from the spot, sending Southend keeper Paul Smith the wrong way - rolling it right footed into the left-hand corner. Referee Andy Haines had a choice of two possible fouls, with both Lenell John-Lewis and then Troy Hewitt barged down in the box, by Ryan Cresswell and Sean Clohessy respectively, as they went to head home David Worrall's cross from the right wing.
27 - John-Lewis just fails to connect with a Hewitt flick on following a dinked cross from David Worrall on the right. The Shakers striker only needed to stretch out a leg and he would probably have found the back of the net, but the ball came to him too quickly at the back post.
25 – Carson does well to get his body behind a speculative Freddie Eastwood effort from 30 yards, which bounces just in front of the Bury keeper.
22 - Lenell John-Lewis takes out Southend centre-back Mark Phillips with a full swing of his right boot. It was an honest challenge, with the Bury striker fully concentrated on volleying Hewitt's cross from the right, only for Phillips to get their first. The Shrimpers defender gets up eventually, but he will have felt the knock on a bitterly cold afternoon at Gigg Lane.
17 - Gregg Wylde's first real act in a Bury shirt is a vicious driven cross from the left wing, midway into the Southend half, which Troy Hewitt just fails to get on the end of despite a despairing sliding lunge.
15 – Gavin Tomlin fires a 30-yard shot wide, with Bury keeper Trevor Carson never troubled.
Both sides are struggling to get the ball under control on a hard frosty pitch, but Southend have had the more telling possession, with Marc Laird just wasting a chance to shoot - choosing instead to aim a wayward pass back out wide after being sent through the middle by Kevan Hurst.
7 - Ryan Cresswell heads the first chance of the game wide from a corner.
K/O: Southend get the tie underway...
Gregg Wylde is thrown into the Bury side for his Gigg Lane debut after joining the Shakers on a month's loan from Bolton Wanderers.
Fellow loan signing Tom Hopper misses out after his parent club, Leicester, refused to give the striker permission to play in the FA Cup.
So in comes Lenell John-Lewis up front alongside Troy Hewitt as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.
Bury go into the game light on attacking choices, with both David Healy and Andy Bishop still missing through injury.
French winger Sebastian Carole has made it onto the bench though after signing non-contract terms this week.
