Bury V Notts County at Gigg Lane - Match Preview
Updated Friday, 31st August 2012
Duo back in Shakers squad
Caretaker Bury boss Peter Shirtliff welcomes Steven Schumacher and Efe Sodje back into his squad when they entertain Notts County.
Skipper Schumacher returns from suspension after being shown a second yellow card in last week's defeat to Doncaster.
Sodje is also available after a three-match ban, the defender was dismissed in the League Cup tie against Middlesbrough.
Midfielder David Worrall faces a late fitness test ahead of kick-off having only returned to training on Thursday morning.
Worrall missed last weekend's draw with Coventry after suffering leg muscle damage against Rovers the week before.
Midfielder Shane Byrne and former Fulham striker David Healy are expected to retain their places in Shirtliff's starting XI having impressed on their debuts against the Sky Blues.
Francois Zoko is still a doubt for Notts County.
Summer signing Zoko missed the defeat to Walsall last weekend with the injury that forced him off against Hartlepool 10 days ago. He will continue to be monitored by manager Keith Curle.
Fellow forward Yoann Arquin will sit out the final game of his three-match ban for the red card he received during the opening-day victory at Crewe.
Striker Enoch Showunmi will be pushing for a starting place after playing the final 30 minutes of the 1-0 home defeat to Walsall.
Defender Carl Regan and midfielders Gavin Mahon and Hamza Bencherif are also options for Curle.
Defenders Tom Williams and Manny Smith (knee) are expected to remain on the sidelines.
