Bury v Accrington preview

Date published: Friday 16th August 2013 11:10

The Shakers hope to kickstart their season this weekend but will need to do so without the suspended Nathan Cameron.

The 21-year-old defender was shown a second yellow card last week for dissent and was duly fined two weeks wages by Shakers boss Kevin Blackwell.

The former Leeds manager will also be without Shane Byrne after the midfielder had his contract terminated by mutual consent on Wednesday having been dogged by injury and illness last term.

Loan signing Jordan Sinnott could be in line for his first start, though, after making an appearance from the bench at Oxford last week following his arrival from Huddersfield.

Danny Webber looks set to continue up front for Stanley when James Beattie’s men visit the North West.

The former Sheffield United striker recovered in time to face Portsmouth last week and will be looking to add to his goalscoring tally after opening his account for Stanley on the first day of the season during the 4-1 defeat at Newport.

With no fresh injury concerns Beattie may opt to keep the same starting XI that held Pompey last week, which would see Kal Naismith makes his second start for the club after joining from Rangers.

Stanley have won just once in their last five visits to Bury.

Bury boss Alan Knill is again without striker Andy Bishop for the home clash with neighbours Accrington.

The highly-rated forward, who has been struggling with tendonitis, returned to training on Monday but suffered a reaction in his knees the following day.

That meant he missed out on Tuesday night’s thrilling penalty shoot-out victory over Shrewsbury, but Knill has no other injury or suspension concerns.

Knill made a number of changes in midweek and could now recall key defender Efe Sodje, midfielder Steven Schumacher and striker Ryan Lowe to the starting line-up.

He said: “Accrington are a dangerous side, they have good players, they play good football and play with a freedom.

“We have to combat that and allow our qualities to come out.”

Accrington boss John Coleman will be hoping to celebrate his new contract with a win against local rivals Bury.

Coleman and his assistant Jimmy Bell have been awarded new five-year deals at the Crown Ground and will be aiming for a win which would take Stanley above the Shakers in the table.

And Coleman has no fresh selection concerns to worry about for the encounter, picking from the same squad that won an 11-goal thriller with Gillingham 7-4 last week.

Alan Burton is a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from a knee injury which has curtailed his involvement so far this season.

Ray Putterill will sit out the last match of the 42-day ban handed to him because of issues with his registration.
