History of the Morecambe v Bury fixture

Bury face a trip to Morecambe at Christie Park on Tuesday evening, looking to break their duck against the hosts. Most of the previous meetings have ended up in defeat for the The Shakers.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2009, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Two match.
