Preview: Alex Welcome Ryan Lowe's Bury To Gresty Road

12 October 2018

Crewe Alex are looking to continue the fine home form against Bury this weekend, having conceded just one goal at Gresty Road this season.

The Alex have won three, drawn one & lost one of the five home games in League Two this season, scoring ten goals in the process.

Former Alex striker Ryan Lowe is now Manager of Bury & he brings his side to Gresty Road looking to seal all three points having only left the Alex as a player in January 2017. 


Date: Saturday 13 October 2018

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Alexandra Stadium

Previous Meeting At Host Club: Crewe 3-3 Bury (August 2015)

Referee: Graham Salisbury (P9, 29Y, 2R)


Crewe: Harry Pickering is in contention to start his first game since August after returning from injury as a substitute in the defeat to Lincoln last weekend.

Eddie Nolan is still a few weeks away, but the majority of the squad is fit & in consideration for selection to take on the Shakers.


Bury: Ryan Lowe played under Artell for Crewe during the first month of his reign, before re-joining Bury in January 2017.

The former Alex striker has taken on Chris Dagnall who enjoyed this last two seasons at Crewe, as well as former favourite Byron Moore & Nicky Maynard, who spent the summer training at Reaseheath.

Eoghan O'Connell (hamstring) will be monitored ahead of the game having missed the last two, with Callum McFadzean likely to continue in defence.

Dagnall, Maynard & Moore are all likely to start.
