Bury v Aldershot Town preview


Bury boss Alan Knill will have striker Ryan Lowe available.

Lowe has been nursing a dead leg but has been passed fit to to play against the Shots.

However, his strike partner Andy Bishop is still a couple of weeks away from a return to the starting line-up after complications in his recovery from tendonitis.

Winger David Worrall was hit by swine flu over the Christmas period and only returned to training at the end of last week.

He made a 10-minute substitute appearance during last weekend’s 1-0 defeat against Accrington, before admitting he is still a long way from peak fitness.

The Shakers have not won in five matches and put in a dismal display at Accrington.

Meanwhile, Peter Vincenti could make his Aldershot debut in Dean Holdsworth’s first game as a Football League manager.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder became former Newport County boss Holdsworth’s first signing for the club, arriving at the EBB Stadium on an 18-month contract from Stevenage.

Vincenti could go straight into the starting line-up as Holdsworth looks to halt the Shots’ slide down the npower League Two table following a run of just two wins in 10 league games.

On-loan Watford forward Liam Henderson made his debut in the 2-1 home defeat by Oxford last weekend and will hope to keep his place alongside Wade Small.

Defender Aaron Morris will also be confident of winning a recall to the starting line-up after being signed on loan by Holdsworth at Newport.

Striker Damian Spencer (knee ligament damage) and midfielder John Halls (groin) remain long-term absentees.
