Bury Vs Macclesfield Town, Tue 9 Feb 2010

Next Story

Bury boss Alan Knill has no fresh concerns ahead of his in-form side`s home clash with Macclesfield.

The Shakers won 1-0 at Bradford on Saturday to extend their fine run of form to just two defeats in 21 games.

Andy Morrell's second-half strike helped Knill`s men to their fifth successive victory, and the Gigg Lane boss will be reluctant to make any changes.

Striker Andy Bishop is easing his way back towards full fitness and made another substitute appearance at the weekend.

Fellow frontman Danny Carlton has been sidelined with a long-term Achilles injury but he is expected back in full training at the end of February.

And striker Tom Elliott is likely to resume his loan spell from Leeds this week after recovering from a hamstring strain.

Macclesfield boss Keith Alexander is hoping to bolster his squad with a loan signing ahead of the trip.

The Silkmen slumped to a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Shrewsbury on Saturday and are now without a win in four games.

Alexander said: "Hopefully we have a loan signing coming in in the next week or so who might liven us all up and we can continue pushing forward."

Macc could be without Paul Bolland for the game after he succumbed to injury on Saturday and was replaced by Shaun Brisley after just 36 minutes.

Alexander will again be without midfield duo Ross Draper and Hamza Bencherif, who remain sidelined with long-term injuries.
