90 – Subs – Healy on for Hopper
84 – Sodje booked for rough aerial challenge on sub Clayton.

81 – Lenell John-Lewis on for Troy Hewitt
78 - Subs – Max Clayton on for Lauri Dalle Valle
70 - A Tootle cross dips quickly and almost deceives Carson, who claws his effort out.
73 - Hopper misses the chance of the match, putting a free header at the back post on to the roof of the net after Worrall picked out his run with a great dinked cross.
67 – Murphy drags a shot wide from outside the box after a good team build-up.
63 - Pogba heads well over after rising above the Bury defence.
64 - Martin pulls off a flying fingertip save to keep out a Hewitt header from a Doherty cross. The ball was arrowing into the top corner. The Crewe stopped then gathers a Schumacher shot from the edge of the box from the resulting corner.
61 - Carson gets down well to gather a stinging 30-yard shot from Crewe captain Luke Murphy. The chance followed a great saving tackle by Mark Hughes to cut out a Moore centre and a certain goal.

45 – Subs: Mark Carrington on for Ethan Ebanks-Landell
45 - Subs: Byron Moore on for Chuks Aneke
K/O: Crewe get the second half under way
H/T: Crewe 0 Bury 0
44 - A mis-hit cross from Worrall on the left sends Martin sprawling backwards, the Crewe keeper just managing to tip it over as he backpeddled.
The formations seem to be cancelling each other out. Neither side are playing with wingers and are struggling to get in behind the defence.
Crewe are playing with wing-backs, while Bury are 4-3-3.
Hopper, Hewitt and Worrall look lively up front together but the Shakers' biggest problem is linking their attacks, as most of their balls are coming from deep using full-backs Skarz and Doherty.
34 - Hopper heads the first real chance for the last 15 minutes straight at Crewe keeper Alan Martin. Matt Doherty put in the cross from the right.
21 - Bury were opened up by a great reverse ball from midfielder Chuks Aneke to Bradden Inman on the left. Carson stopped his shot well with his legs and Skarz put in a diving block as Pogba attempted to convert the rebound.
13 – Tom Hopper just fails to get over an attempted header after a great return ball from David Worral on the left.
10 - Mathias Pogba feeds the ball to midfielder Chuks Aneke who unloads a drilled shot from a tight angle straight down the throat of Bury keeper Trevor Carson. Did well to get down low and hold on to it.
7 – Wing-back Matt Tootle fires over after leaving Joe Skarz for dead and unleashing a shot following a run infield. A pass may have been a better option.
5 - Troy Hewitt volleys just wide after getting in front of his marker and on the end of a sweeping Matt Doherty cross.
Forgot to say that Bish has been dropped from the squad for today's match. He has been having injections in his problem heel just to play, so probably a wise move...
K/O: Bury get the game underway...
BURY: Carson; Doherty, Sodje, Hughes, Skarz; Ebanks-Landell; Schumacher, Thompson; Worrall, Hopper, Hewitt.

Bury continue with the new system that started Tuesday night's FA Cup replay at Southend, when Ethan Ebanks-Landell played just in front of the back four.
There is no place for Wanderers midfielder Gregg Wylde anywhere in the squad, with Kevin Blackwell plumping for Troy Hewitt as his fifth permitted loan signing.
He will line up in a possible forward three alongside winger David Worrall and the returning Tom Hopper, who was not permitted to play in the FA Cup by parent club Leicester.
