Second half under way
Bury 0 Burton Albion 0
45 +1 - Jensen is left scrambling again as Phillips' deflected shot loops just wide.
44 - McGurk is given the room to turn and his fierce left-foot shot from 30 yards flies past Jensen's despairing dive but also the far post.
41 - Another good run from Jones but his reverse ball, as he jinks inside off the right touchline, fails to find the run of Grimes.
42 - Sedgwick whips in an inviting ball that is just out of reach for Nardiello.
34 - The ball skims off the woodwork following a determined run and cross from Jones down the right.
28 - Ismail's low cross goes enticingly across goal but there are no Burton players on hands to put the ball home. Another lucky escape for Bury.
29 - Grimes gets into the box at the other end, but his curled effort is straight at Lyness.
25 - Ismail volleys across goal but his effort was always rising. The winger was in plenty of space inside the box at the back post.
23 - Jensen spills a long-range shot from Phillips bu gathers at the second attempt.
22 - Great ball out from the back from Mills is controlled by Nardiello and layed off to Grimes but the return ball is blocked off. Almost a good move.
20 - Anton Forrester has a low shot stopped by Burton keeper Lyness following a good run and cross from Jones.
19 - McGurk dances his way in from the left flank but his shot is easily gathered by Jensen.
16 - Instinctive save from Brian Jensen to deny Billy Kee from opening the scoring with a powerful header from a corner. The striker then put a follow-up shot just wide.
It's the same formation, just different faces. As expected, Mills is at the heart of three-man defence, with McNulty on his left and Veseli on his right.
Sedgwick is playing on the left of a four man midfield, but dropping back to help in defence when Bury don't have the ball.
Match under way
Today's pre-match build-up will be puncuated by what promises to be a very moving tribute for the fans to former player Bobby Collins and much-loved supporter Keith Freeman, who both died this week.
Both men had an impact on the club's rich history.
Collins helping Bury to promotion from Division Three in the middle of his three season with the club between 1967 and 1969.
While Keith, as landlord of the Golden Fleece and Waterloo pubs provided digs and a home from home to a generation of young Shakers players.
He was a second father to many of them, most recently Cameron Belford, who is in the ground today to pay his respects, along with Keith's daughter, Amanda, and son, Darren.
Please make yourselves heard in their support in a minute's applause before the game.
Just over-heard Colin Hendry getting a full pre-match de-brief about all of the Bury players in today's squad. Not sure in what capacity?
Flitcroft makes five changes to the team that lost 4-0 at Chesterfield last weekend.
Nathan Cameron drops out of the squad altogether, while Richard Hinds, James Burke and Andy Procter step down to the bench and Danny Mayor is suspended following his red card last Saturday.
In come Pablo Mills and Jim McNulty to make their debuts in a probable back three, which will also include Frederic Veseli.
Captain Craig Jones returns from a groin injury for his first start since before Christmas, and is expected to line up on the right of a midfield four that will also include Tom Soares alongside Tommy Miller in the centre.
Ashley Grimes is the other fresh face to the starting line-up, with the forward likely to play just behind strikers Daniel Nardiello and Anton Forrester.
Young striker Anthony Dudley is the notable introduction to the subs bench, promoted on the back of 10 goals in 12 games for the youth side.
BURY: Jensen; McNulty, Mills, Veseli; Jones, Miller, Soares, Sedgwick; Grimes; Nardiello, Forrester.
