Bury 1 Northampton Town 1
Edjenguele fouls McLeod.
Chris Hackett blazes over the spot-kick. Think Chrissy Waddle. The ball is still rising...

43 - Northampton keeper comes out with the ball after a scramble following a Sedgwick free-kick into the box.

38 - Ian Morris checks back on his right foot but slices his shot wide from outside the box.

23 - GOAL - BURY 1 Northampton 0 - Danny Nardiello fires home the penalty straight down the middle. The spot kick came after Shaun Harrad crossed into the box and Paul Reid was ruled to have checked Craig Jones with his arm as he tried to jump for a header in the six-yard box.
Penalty for Bury - referee Nigel Miller blows for a check on Craig Jones
20 - First time ball from Soares well cleared with Nards hovvering.
15 - Brilliant break by Sedgwick down the right from a Northampton corner looked to have broken down as his raking crossfield ball had too much legs for Harrad but the ball rebounded off the onrushing keeper against the striker and rolled just wide of the empty net.
15 - Ian Morris's deflected shot goes wide for a corner.
Nards looks to be running more freely now. Game has gone into a bit of a lull.
Hush in the ground as Nardiello looks to be hobbling after a heavy fall.
8 - Nardiello runs into the right channel and drives a ball into the box which is eventually cleared after Milller's shot on the rebound is charged down.
6 - Soares has the first attempt on goal of the match, firing wide from 25 yards.
First impression - it looks as if Flickers is playing three in midfield - Sedgwick, Miller and Soares - with Craig Jones just behind the front two of Nardiello and Harrad.
Craig Jones wins the toss and elects to kick to the opposite end, towards the away fans.
Bury kick off...
Players are out.
Goalkeeper news: Fred Barber's son, Jonathan was in goal as David Flitcroft was putting his strikers through shooting practice.
Top rumour is that Mike Pollitt will be Barber's replacement as goalkeeping coach at Bury.

The boss is taking a bit of a gamble with selection of harrad and cameron though both players will want to have a good game against their former teams 'nice to see procter has been dropped who is our new captain?
Predictions for Flickers' first game as @buryfcofficial manager? Thoughts on team selection/Jones as captain?— @CraigNelsonBT 14 December 2013
New manager David Flitcroft makes three changes to the side that lost at Cambridge United in the FA Cup.
Danny Nardiello returns after being unavailable for that game, replacing fellow Rotherham loanee Danny Hylton, who loses his place in the squad altogether.
Tommy Miller takes captain Andy Procter's place in the centre of midfield, with the former Accrington skipper dropping down to the bench.
Winger Craig Jones takes the armband.
And Shaun Beeley makes a welcome return to the defence, allowing Nathan Cameron to switch back into the centre of the backline after covering for Beeley at right-back against Cambridge.
Euan Holden and Jessy Reindorf lose their places on the bench, while Richard Hinds drops out completely after starting the defeat at Cambridge.
In comes Ashley Grimes for his first involvement in a matchday squad since coming on as a sub in the 3-1 defeat at home to Torquay United on November 2.
