Bury vs Cambridge preview
Cambridge could be without captain Gary Deegan

Bury will be without midfielder Danny Mayor for Tuesday night's League Two clash with Cambridge at Gigg Lane.
Mayor is suspended after his sending-off in Saturday's 3-1 home defeat to Swindon which incurred the wrath of Shakers boss Ryan Lowe.
That defeat cost Bury their unbeaten 14-match league record and could prompt Lowe to make further changes to his starting line-up.
Byron Moore, Ryan Cooney and Gold Omotayo are all pushing for starting places after coming off the bench against the Robins.
Cambridge could be without captain Gary Deegan, who was forced off with a back spasm midway through Saturday's defeat to Colchester.
To compound boss Colin Calderwood's injury worries, Paul Lewis, who only lasted five minutes after replacing Deegan, is definitely ruled out.
Rushian Hepburn-Murphy and Liam O'Neil are both suffering from ankle injuries which will rule them out again. But on a brighter note Calderwood has indicated Reggie Lambe could come back into contention after his return from injury.
Bury are unbeaten in eight league meetings with Cambridge United (W6 D2), although the reverse meeting between the two in November 2018 was a 2-2 draw.
Cambridge United have lost each of their last three league trips to Bury since last beating them 1-0 in August 2002.
Bury were beaten for the first time in 15 league games last time out at home to Swindon (1-3) - they haven't lost consecutive league games since September; their fourth and fifth games of the season.
Cambridge are unbeaten in their last two league games on their travels (W1 D1), last earning points in three successive away trips in April 2018 (four games).
Bury have scored 46 goals after 19 home league games this season. Seven of the last eight fourth division sides to score as many goals after 19 home games have been promoted.
