Injuries could hit Bury Town’s FA Cup clash

BURY Town will need no greater incentive to overcome Hampton and Richmond Borough at Ram Meadow than to be in the hat with several ex-Football League sides and the possibility of a lucrative draw in the Fourth Qualifying round of the FA Cup.

But first they have a difficult third round game which they will go into without defender Russell Short who is best man at his brother`s wedding.

In addition, injuries to Billy Clark, Jordan Patrick and Lee Reed could also deplete the squad, while Evan Key is playing for the county under-18s, though it is expected that Clark and Patrick will be fit.

Allicion Blake is cup-tied as are all the Team Bury players who played in the competition.

Defender Daniel Hitching is being recalled from his loan at Mildenhall to provide defensive cover.
