Vale are back on home soil this weekend following back-to-back away games as Bury make the journey to Burslem, but what happened when the two sides last faced each other?
It was January 2017 when Vale last played the Shakers, and it proved to be an entertaining afternoon of Sky Bet League One football at Vale Park.
Both teams had to settle for a point after sharing four goals, but it was the home side who were left more disappointed.
Tyler Walker put Vale ahead in his first appearance signing on loan from Nottingham Forest, crashing an effort beyond the goalkeeper from 20 yards with 20 minutes played.
James Vaughan then levelled proceedings on 40 minutes as he got on the end of Hope Akpan's cross, but the Valiants were back in front during first half stoppage time as Ryan Taylor struck from the penalty spot.
Despite going into the break with the lead, Michael Brown's men were unable to collect all three points as they conceded 10 minutes into the second half. Vaughan was the man to score again, and that proved to be the final goal of the affair.
When looking at the overall record between the two teams, it's Bury who edge it in terms of wins. Vale have faced the Shakers 79 times, winning 26, drawing 22 and losing 31 of those fixtures.
