Notts have met Bury 118 times in their history.
Bury won the reverse fixture 4-0 at Gigg Lane in a match they dominated from start to finish.
It was a result that stopped Notts’ five game unbeaten run. It was this result that started the fall back down the table and eventually led to the sacking of Harry Kewell.
Notts have won 1 of their last 12 league games (a sequence which started with the 4-0 loss at Bury earlier in the season).
One positive (a rare thing at the moment) is that Notts have scored in both home games Neal Ardley has took charge of.
Whilst their home form has been brilliant with four successive wins at Gigg Lane, Bury have hit a bad patch away from home in which they are winless in three (2-2 vs Cambridge, 4-2 vs Oldham and 2-1 vs Mansfield).
Danger man Danny Mayor has completed the most successful dribbles this season in League Two with 128.
