TEAM NEWS
United will wait on a couple of knocks but are expected to have a fully fit squad available as they travel to Bury in SkyBet League 2 on Saturday.

Strikers Danny Hylton and Patrick Hoban both picked up knocks in the 1-1 draw with Morecambe on Tuesday but are expected to be given the green light to continue at Gigg Lane.

Left back Joe Skarz won promotion from this division while playing for the Shakers and is looking forward to going back to the club where he mader over 150 appearances earlier in his career:

"I really enjoyed my time there," he told Yellow Player. "I took a gamble and dropped a couple of divisions from Huddersfield but it worked out really well and they are a very good club. They have done well again this season but we have worked hard this week, we are very together as a team and we will go there looking to win the game."

See Michael Appleton give his thoughts ahead of the game in Yellow Player, where the Preview Show features Skarz, Armand Gnanduillet and former United striker Jamie Cook, and we will also have full commentary on the whole game. 

THE OPPOSITION
There will be a familiar face in the Bury side, with Joe Riley up against the U's after spending the first half of the season at the Kassam Stadium.

“It’ll be nice to see some faces that were down there, but the main thing is that we win the game and get the three points," he said. "Come Saturday at 3 o’clock, there will be no friends in terms of me. I just want to get the win. When I was at Oxford, Bury were the team we were looking at thinking they have a very strong squad this year and since I’ve come here I’ve seen that day in, day out.”
