Bury FC are our opponents as we look to grab a massive result.

The Opponents

The Shakers are currently sat second in the league.

David McNabb's side are looking to rise up the leagues for the foreseeable future making them a very tough opponent.

However Ashcroft's men managed to grab a point at Gigg Lane in September.

Jack Anderton got the Ridge off to a flyer when he ran onto Morgan Homson-Smith's long searching ball and lashed into the bottom corner after just two minutes.

Bury's Benito Lowe glanced Matty Williams' knockdown into the far corner of Kier Barry's goal to snatch a draw with just 5 minutes left to play.

Bury FC are not to be confused with the Bury AFC we faced last season as a merger vote confirmed that members of both Bury FC and Bury AFC voted to merge the two clubs.
