4:32pm

64 - A storming Mayor run to the byline deserved better as his low cross fails to find a Bury player in the six-yard box. All it needed was a touch.

4:30pm

62 - Mayor drifts inside and lets fly from distance, but his shot was always rising.

Bury are rightly given a standing ovation as they go off for half time following a scintillating 45 minutes against a Pompey side that went into this match on the back of five straight victories.
Hallam Hope has been at the heart of everything, scoring two goals and creating a number of other scoring chances, both for himself and his team-mates.
The young Everton striker has doubled his tally for Bury, making it four goals now in seven appearances.
You wouldn't bet against him becoming the first Shaker to score a league hat-trick since Ian Lawson in August, 1999.

2:34pm

Team news

Clive Platt replaces the suspended Daniel Nardiello up front in the only change to Bury's starting line-up from the side that lost 1-0 at York City.

That result ended Bury's chances of making the League Two play-offs and heralded the recall of on-loan striker Danny Rose to parent club Barnsley.

The loss of Nardiello and Rose has opened up the way for two youth team players to take up a place on the bench, midfielder Anthony Burgess and full-back Marcus Poscha, who have both played every game for the Under-18s this season.

Ashley Grimes also comes in for Tommy Miller on the bench.

Bury fans may be surprised to see Shaker Trevor Carson in goal for Portsmouth today. His appearance is part of the agreement made between the two sides as part of his loan move to the South Coast.

According to Neil Allen, who follows Pompey for The Portsmouth News, the Northern Irishman has been a big hit and is odds on favourite to be named play of the season.  

2:14pm

Full line-ups 

BURY: Jensen; Jones, Mills, McNulty, Hussey; Soares, Tutte, Sedgwick, Mayor; Platt, Hope.

Subs: Cameron, Procter, Grimes, Charles-Cook, Burgess, Obadeyi, Poscha.

PORTSMOUTH: Carson; East, N'Gala, Corley, Shorey; Ertl, Hollands; Wallace, Fogden, Holmes; Taylor.

Subs: Smith, Devera, Bradley, Webster, Agyemang, Jervis, Whatmough.

Referee: Steven Rushton.

2:11pm

Poscha has played 28 times for the youth this season at full-back, as well as making a number of appearances for the reserves, including in their march to the Lancashire FA Senior Cup final.

Burgess has had a similarly successful season in midfield, also playing in every one of the Under-18s' 28 matches.

2:08pm

Team news 

We are just waiting for the full line-ups at the JD Stadium but Bury have confirmed that David Flitcroft will be handing squad numbers to two youth team players - Scott Burgess and Marcus Poscha.

What a last game of the season. Where did that come from? A very reliable and resolute defense fell apart within that last 10 mins. The first half was outstanding and when we went 3-0 up, I personally thought we would get 5.

Hallam is top drawer. This kid is top drawer, Wonder if David can work his magic and get him next season? He terrorized Pompey. Talking of Pompey, what support!!

I am thrilled for the fans, team, management and chairman that we have established ourselves as a force for the next season. A win next week at Morecombe and a BG show of fans will be just right for me. What a season...

Oh dear at 3-0 Pompey seemed to get some momentum and we got very shaky and scruffy in defence,this was exasserpated by Jensen having a nightmare in gathering the ball,most times Pompey came forward,the throw in's into the box and set pieces caused havoc,however,these things happen in football and if we had been 3-0 down and come back to 4-4 in the final minutes no one would be complaining,so the positives of other aspects of the game outweigh the negatives and the unbeaten home run continues into next season,bring it on.

Yes I agree with you,Pompey only started to get their game together once they realised they were in for a severe beating.
It's a pity about the dramatic collapse of our defence in those final few minutes and that the lads weren't canny enough to see the game out but I enjoyed the match as a spectacle.
The neutrals would have enjoyed it but from the managers point of view the defending would have been horrendous to witness from the touchline.
Jensen had one of his worst games for us in a Bury shirt but Hope was different class and I was thrilled to witness the first Bury player to score a hat-trick since Ian Lawson's against Colchester United back in 1999.I think that too was an 8 goal thriller finishing 5-3 to The Shakers.

Right, i still can't get over the way we capitulated in that 2nd half, to concede 4 goals at home against, what has to be said, was a pretty poor Pompey team was imo disgraceful. Having nothing to play for or not, i really hope DF laid down the law after the game, as that cannot be accepted going forward into next season. The defending for all 4 goals was absolutely appalling and what Jensen was doing for the last one i just don't know.....well atleast it'll give Flickers and Co something to work on this week. I still feel naffed off now. Anyway, rant over.lol

Overall, i think at the beginning of the season i think we would all agree that a mid table finish is what we all have settled for, to stabilize our very tough start to the season...and we've achieved that. Thanks to Mr Day and Flickers we now have a very steady footing going into next season and we all know that the ambition of both will be promotion.
With Hope, Mayor and Hussey all in talks to stay next season, couple this with a few more decent acquisitions, there really is no reason why we shouldn't do very well.

Onwards and upwards.

If you have any doubts about what we are to expect next season, have a listen to The Chairman's interview on shakers player. Here is a man who knows how to run a business and a football club. His insights and plans are progressive and exciting.
His choice of David is also brought up and this rubbish about monies being paid by other Managers is jealously. He is a Fan's fan. There is no doubt with Mr, Day at the helm and the support of the board and Flickers leading the way that we will succeed in league 2 and beyond.

What an incredible year for our club. This time last year we were wondering what the heck?.

Loved his comments about the pitch being the best in the league after the re-lay, the supporters interests are his interests and the whole interview was so uplifting.

Some may criticize for leaving KB at the helm. I say No. He gave KB the chance ( as loyalty is one of his biggest attributes), and predictably KB failed.

Well the future is looking bright, a really good game enjoyed by the majority of the supporters. Heard one or two people whinging just after pompeys equaliser that the team was crap, well I dont know who they was watching but it obviously was Bury. And for those of you who were moaning what the hell do you want, we are lucky to have a team, manager and director who want to go places.
