Bury manager Alan Knill is not expected to make any changes when his side host play-off rivals Chesterfield.

Knill will again pair on-loan striker Daniel Nardiello with Andy Morrell in attack as a number of other forwards remain sidelined through injury.

Nardiello, who has joined the Shakers on a month's loan deal from Blackpool, has scored two goals in two games.

Knill said: "They are both quality players and I'm not that surprised at how well they work together. They look like a decent pair."

Andy Bishop is still two or three weeks away from returning to action, Ryan Lowe is expected to be out for another week while Danny Carlton is not expected to return until the new year.

Chesterfield manager John Sheridan will pick from the same squad.

The Spireites have no fresh injury concerns or suspensions after the weekend's 5-2 thumping of Darlington at Saltergate.

Sheridan can therefore name the same squad for the trip to Gigg Lane but he may consider reshuffling the forward line to include Scott Boden.

Boden came off the bench with nine minutes remaining and grabbed a quickfire brace in the defeat of the Quakers.

Chesterfield may have no new injuries but will be without three long-term casualties.

Gregor Robertson (broken leg) and Jamie Lowry (cruciate ligament) are out for the rest of the season, while Aaron Downes (cruciate ligament) is still not ready to return to the first-team despite beginning his comeback.
