F/T: Bury 1 Walsall 1

4:47pm

86 – Sub – Mark Carrington on for Peter Sweeney

4:42pm

81 – Sub - Craig Jones on for Poleon

4:41pm

79 – Poleon booked for kicking the ball away

4:38pm

76 – Efe Sodje misses a free header at the back post, but knew little about it as he was unsighted as the driven Schumacher corner came off him.

4:36pm

4:35pm

74 – Troy Hewitt heads a Schumacher free-kick across goal but Adam Lockwood just fails to get on the end of it to force the ball home.

4:33pm

71 – Hopper bursts into the box and goes down as the ball is played into his feet, but the referee rules that his momentum, rather than a foul, takes him over.

4:28pm

66 – Walsall sub - George Bowerman on for James Baxendale

4:26pm

64 - Sub – Troy Hewitt on for David Healy

4:15pm

52 – Tom Hopper strikes the far post with a shot from inside the Walsall box. The 18-year-old received the ball from David Healy with his back to goal, but turned sharply to hit it back across the keeper with his left foot.

4:12pm

48 – Jamie Paterson has the first effort on target of the second half, his right foot shot hitting Carson on the chest, before the Bury keeper plucks a longer range effort from Florent Cuvelier out of the air.

4:06pm

K/O: Bury kick off the second half with both sides unchanged...

3:51pm

H/T: Bury 1 Walsall 1

3:50pm

45 – Grof pokes out a leg to turn a Tom Hopper shot out for a corner. The on-loan Leicester striker, who has not had one of his better matches, controlled a Worrall cross from the right and swiveled to shoot low to the keeper’s left.

3:41pm

37 – Andy Butler makes a theatrical headed clearance off the line to deny Poleon his second of the day. The winger curled an effort over Grof after being teed up by David Worrall following a sweeping move across the park, but the covering Walsall captain dives to clear his looping goal-bound shot.

3:35pm

33 – Referee allows play to go on after an obvious handball by a Walsall defender, but David Healy sends his 20-yard shot wide.

3:29pm

27 – Grof makes a flying save to tip Schumacher’s driven 30-yard free-kick around the post.

3:28pm

Bury continue to look shaky at the heart of their defence, but Walsall have not been able to put them under serious pressure.

It looks like Walsall are being forced into an early switch, with James Chambers coming on for left-back Andy Taylor.

3:19pm

12 – Nicky Featherstone puts Carson in trouble with a stinging shot that the former Sunderland stopper can only parry. A combination of Lockwood and Sodje clear the danger, but the centre-back pairing are looking anything but assured.

3:13pm

11 – GOAL – BURY 1 Walsall 1 – Dominic Poleon bags his second goal in four games after joining Bury on loan from Leeds. After a bright start in the match, the 19-year-old forward shows more fleet of foot in the box to create space for a curling effort that he bent round the dive of Grof and into the bottom corner.

3:10pm

7 – GOAL – Bury 0 Walsall 1 – Will Grigg charges down a clearance from Bury goalkeeper Trevor Carson and pokes home after getting to the loose ball quickest. Carson had been put into trouble by a poor back-pass from Efe Sodje but should still have done better.

3:08pm

3:08pm

6 – Healy tests Grof after more good work from Poleon on the left – the winger then failed to hit the target with the follow-up.

3:04pm

1 – Walsall keeper David Grof palms away left-footed shot by Steven Schumacher after a strong run from Dominic Poleon .

3:01pm

K/O: Bury get the game under way...

Team news

Kevin Blackwell has been forced into making one change from the starting 11 that notched up Bury's first win of the season in midweek.

Andy Bishop makes way up front after failing to shake off a foot injury, with David Healy replacing him alongside Tom Hopper in attack.

Andrai Jones steps up to take Healy's seat on the bench after dropping out of the first-team squad following Blackwell's arrival as manager.

Well it looks like the strikers once again misfired in front of goal.
For me this was a gimme 3 points considering that they had their goalie on loan recalled and were missing their main centre half.We needed to build some momentum and keep the winning run going.These are the type of games that we need to win.Given the fact Walsall haven't won in 7 games we should have really taken advantage.I think Bish was a big miss today however as he can provide the right balls for Hopper to get on the end of.Our season could now depend on a couple of cup ties in the next 4 weeks.However i still think KB can turn things around.To a certain extent his hands are tied and he has to make do with the dregs he has at his disposal.4 points from 6 would normally be a good return but when you are desperate for points there is a marked contrast.

On the club official web official website our captain says that oponents don't relish playing at Gigg Lane,only one home win in eight attempts suggests that most of them do.He then bizarrely attempts to portray Healy in a more favourable goalscoring light than Ryan Lowe.For the record Schuey over the last four seasons Lowe has scores 73 goals in 161 league appearances while Healy has scored 8 goals in 52 league games.If you can't think of anything sensible to say,why not try keeping your mouth shut,because when you speak the stuff you come out with is about as accurate as your passing.

Well i wouldn't take too much notice of what Schuey has to say.He's obviously lost the respect of his fellow team-mates and this is why he is spouting all of this drivel.For me he would be at the top of my player's exit list.I can't understand why young Shane Byrne isn't given a run out.If he's injured or playing with an injury perhaps he might convince Big Kev to shuffle his pack.We should have taken 3 points against both Carlisle United & Walsall at home and 2 points from our trips to Crawley & Yeovil so we would then sit 1 point outside the relegation zone not 5 behind.I think Kev is doing all of the right things apart from addressing the defensive issues.If we had kept a clean sheet in all of his games think where we would be now.

Great insights. Yes, we should have beaten Carlisle and Walsall. We picked up 2 points. I look at as 2 pts we may well need at the end of the season. The question is does Kevin have the insights and experience to save the club, I say "yes".
He is not satisfied with performances where we are picking up points and continues to change-up to see what can come from it. With Barker, he was in neutral.
I honestly believe we will survive this even though it looks like a monster challange. I think we can beat Oldham and Pompey.
Let's see.... noticed that "Shifty" was fired today from Scunthorpe.
