Bury manager Richie Barker will look to name an unchanged side.

The Shakers eased their relegation worries with a convincing 4-1 win over Colchester on Easter Monday and are now just three points behind 12th-placed Hartlepool.

Strike duo Shaun Harrad and Mike Grella grabbed a goal apiece in the victory against the U's at Gigg Lane and they are likely to continue up front after replacing Lenell John-Lewis and Andy Bishop.

On-loan West Brom striker Lateef Elford-Alliyu has been restricted to substitute appearances in the last four games and he will again have to settle for a place on the bench.

Victory for Bury would see them safe for another season if Wycombe lose to Oldham.

Bournemouth will continue to be without Matt Tubbs.

The striker underwent an operation on his hamstring recently and, while the procedure was successful, the club's record signing was originally ruled out for the remainder of the current campaign.

Tubbs may now return before the season's end, but he will definitely not feature against the Shakers.

Caretaker-manager Paul Groves will also be unable to call on defender Charlie Daniels, whose recovery from a broken bone in his foot is progressing well but the clash with Bury comes too soon for him to make his comeback.

Charlie Sheringham (foot) will remain sidelined for the rest of the term while Stephen Purches (double leg break) is targeting a return to fitness in January next year.
