SHAKERS DANGERMAN – TOM SOARES

Released by Premier League Stoke City in the summer, Soares joined Bury on non-contract terms earlier this month and is playing for nothing.

He began his career at Crystal Palace and made more than 100 appearances for the Eagles, including 22 in the Premier League in 2004-05.

The 26-year-old won four under-21 caps for England and remained at Selhust Park until the summer of 2008 when newly-promoted Stoke paid £1.25m for him.

However, his switch to the Britannia Stadium did not go as planned and, in a frustrating four-year spell with the Potters, he played just 12 times and was sent out on loan Charlton, Sheffield Wednesday and Hibernian.

The winger made his Bury debut in last Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Colchester and starred during the midweek win at Scunthorpe.

2:50pm

It's chilly but dry at Gigg Lane. Former Cherries ace John 'Willo' Williams is, however, still wearing shorts... and pink gloves.

2:48pm

Barnard drops to the bench where he is joined by new loan signing Brett Pitman.

2:48pm

Cherries make one change to their starting line-up with Matt Tubbs coming in for Lee Barnard.

2:48pm

MAN IN THE MIDDLE – CARL BOYESON

Learned his trade in the Hull Sunday League and UniBond League after taking up the whistle at 22 and has been on the National List of referees since 2002. He is a central heating technician who enjoys a round of golf and watching most sports.

HAVEN’T WE MET BEFORE?

Bury won 5-1 in the first league fixture between the teams in August 1958 before Cherries had to wait more than 42 years to put five past the Shakers at Gigg Lane – on James Hayter Day in October 2000.

Hayter added to Claus Jorgensen’s opener to make it 2-0 to Sean O’Driscoll’s side as Warren Cummings made his debut for the club following a loan move from Chelsea.

Although Steve Redmond pulled one back for the Shakers, Hayter then netted a second-half hat-trick to take to four his personal tally in the game. Andy Preece completed the scoring as Cherries ran out 5-2 victors.

Despite trying to put a spoke through Cherries’ chances of winning promotion by doing the double over them in 2002-03, Bury went on to lose the play-off semi-final against O’Driscoll’s men.

MANAGERS MUSINGS – EDDIE HOWE AND KEVIN BLACKWELL

 

Cherries boss Howe told the Daily Echo: “It would be wrong to look at the league table in this instance to gauge how hard this game is going to be because they have done extremely well recently.
“They have beaten some good teams and all the reports we have had have on them have been very positive.
“They have brought in some good loan players who have made a difference and have really improved their team and squad. Having been to Bury many times as both manager and player, I know it is a difficult place to go.
“When you put everything in the mix, it is going to be a tough examination for us and another good indicator to see how far we have come.
“Kevin Blackwell has done a great job in a short space of time. We have watched them so we know their strengths. We will prepare our players and make sure they are fully focused.”

Blackwell told the Bury official website: “It was a very good performance at Scunthorpe on Tuesday and it is nice to get a lot of praise from the pundits about how we played and what people were seeing. Now, we just have to keep it going.  Hopefully, it is the start of something good.
“It is fifth versus first in the form table. We need to be hitting championship-winning form to get out of this and both sides are in that at the moment. We need to stay in there a little bit longer to give us a platform to move away and keep away from the bottom of the table. 
“I think we can beat anybody, that’s what I want to do.  We are 14 points off the play-offs and are only still in the bottom four on goal difference.”

2:39pm

No as he's taken the QPR job today and so is at Old Trafford to see them play.
