History of the Gillingham v Bury fixture

Bury travel to take on Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Shakers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 14 and win only 4 of the 23 games.

The last time the two teams met at Gillingham was back in December 1999, over five years ago, the The Gills carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League Division Two match.
