Bury know they just need one more point to seal promotion back to League One when they travel to Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday night.

The game was originally due to be played on Saturday only for heavy rain to leave the Prenton Park pitch unplayable.

Defeats for Mansfield and MK Dons at the weekend mean that the Shakers know a draw will be enough on Merseyside as their two nearest rivals play each other on the final day.

Ryan Lowe’s side, second behind champions Lincoln, are set to be backed by 2,000 travelling fans who will have good memories of games at Tranmere having sealed promotion there back in 2015.

Success on the field has come amid a backdrop of serious financial problems. 

Bury are back in the High Court next month facing a winding up order with owner Steve Dale having put the club up for sale last week, indicating the club need £1.6 million just to cover bills until the end of May.
