Bury vs Cheltenham preview
Last Updated: 26/11/18 2:50pm
Neil Danns and Caolan Lavery will be pushing for a recall when Bury face Cheltenham on Tuesday night.
Ryan Lowe had named an unchanged team for Saturday's match against Cambridge, but it ended in a frustrating draw as Bury threw away a two-goal lead against 10 men.
That could open the door for Danns, who missed the match after returning late from international duty, and Lavery, back in training after a dislocated shoulder. Striker Jermaine Beckford (knee) remains the only long-term absentee.
Cheltenham boss Michael Duff is hopeful on-loan Chelsea midfielder Jacob Maddox will be fit for the match. The 20-year-old sat out the weekend clash against Newport with a hamstring injury but has been taking part in light training and could return.
Cheltenham did not miss him too much on Saturday though, as they beat Newport 2-0 for their first home league win of the season to continue a recent revival. Johnny Mullins was an unused substitute in the match, his first appearance in a matchday squad since he was knocked unconscious and suffered a broken nose in an FA Cup draw at Ebbsfleet earlier in the month.
Bury have lost four of their last five home league games against Cheltenham (W1), failing to score in three of those matches.
Cheltenham have failed to score in just one of their 14 Football League games against Bury, in a 0-2 loss in September 2010.
Bury have lost just one of their last 10 home games in the league (W6 D3), keeping five clean sheets.
Cheltenham have won their last two games, as many wins as they managed in their previous 20 league games (D5 L13).
Bury's Nicky Maynard has scored four goals in his three league games against Cheltenham, including a hat-trick in his last such appearance against them for Crewe in April 2008.
