Head to head: Bury

29 December 2018

Ahead of this afternoon's Sky Bet League Two clash between Notts County and Bury, we recall some previous encounters between the two teams.

The sides have met 118 times over the years, with the Magpies winning on 43 occasions and 28 games being drawn.

There have been clashes in all four tiers of English football, as well as FA Cup, League Cup and Football League Trophy meetings since the first fixture in 1894.

Here's a Notts win, a Shakers victory and a draw that are worth reliving...

Notts 4-1 Bury

Friday 22 February 2013

Notts came from a goal down at half-time to record a comprehensive win against Bury the last time they visited Meadow Lane.

The Shakers took the lead 24 minutes in through Steven Schumacher and might have fancied their chances of earning just their second win in 16 games, but three goals around the hour-mark turned the match on its head.

Julian Kelly levelled on 58 minutes before a Francois Zoko brace put the Magpies two ahead with 25 to play.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce completed the scoring from the penalty spot and earned Chris Kiwomya his first win as caretaker boss.

Bury 2-2 Notts

Tuesday 25 October 2011

Notts came from behind twice to earn a point at Gigg Lane in the last meeting of the two sides to end level.

The hosts took a fifth-minute lead through Andy Bishop but parity was restored before half-time when Jeff Hughes slammed home a penalty.

Another spot-kick saw Bury regain their advantage as Giles Coke benefitted from Mike Edwards’ handball, before Hughes netted from 12 yards once again after Efe Sodje handled in the box.

The result extended Notts' unbeaten run in League Two to four matches.

The Shakers’ last win at Meadow Lane also came in a goalfest as Notts suffered a set-back in their quest for a League One play-off place.

David Worrall gave Bury the lead shortly before half-time but a Coke own-goal levelled things after the break.

Mike Grella quickly restored the advantage and added his second with 67 minutes on the clock before Edwards reduced the arrears.

Andrai Jones was dismissed for Bury and the Magpies pushed for an equaliser but Mark Carrington made sure of the points late on, securing the Shakers’ League One status.
