Last Updated: 03/08/18 4:07pm
Bury could field virtually a whole new team against Yeovil at Gigg Lane.
Boss Ryan Lowe has made 11 signings since his caretaker role was turned into a permanent appointment in May. New boys Chris Dagnall, Dominic Telford, Gold Omotayo and Jordan Archer are challenging for forward spots, while midfielder Nicky Adams has returned for a third spell with the Shakers.
Will Aimson and Tom Miller could feature in defence after summer moves and Callum McFadzean will be included in the squad after signing a short-term contract this week.
