Bury boss Alan Knill is again without striker Andy Bishop for the home clash with neighbours Accrington.

The highly-rated forward, who has been struggling with tendonitis, returned to training on Monday but suffered a reaction in his knees the following day.

That meant he missed out on Tuesday night's thrilling penalty shoot-out victory over Shrewsbury, but Knill has no other injury or suspension concerns.

Knill made a number of changes in midweek and could now recall key defender Efe Sodje, midfielder Steven Schumacher and striker Ryan Lowe to the starting line-up.

He said: "Accrington are a dangerous side, they have good players, they play good football and play with a freedom.

"We have to combat that and allow our qualities to come out."

Accrington boss John Coleman will be hoping to celebrate his new contract with a win.

Coleman and his assistant Jimmy Bell have been awarded new five-year deals at the Crown Ground and will be aiming for a win which would take Stanley above the Shakers in the table.

And Coleman has no fresh selection concerns to worry about for the Gigg Lane encounter, picking from the same squad that won an 11-goal thriller with Gillingham 7-4 last week.

Alan Burton is a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from a knee injury which has curtailed his involvement so far this season.

Ray Putterill will sit out the last match of the 42-day ban handed to him because of issues with his registration.
