Last Time We Met Bury

2 May 2019

John Askey and his Vale side will be in action for the final time this season when they make the trip to Bury on Saturday, but can you remember what happened last time the teams met?

It was back in October 2018 when the Shakers came to Vale Park, and it was expected to be a very difficult test against a side pushing for promotion out of Sky Bet League Two.

However, it was the Valiants who came out on top in a game where they also registered their fourth consecutive clean sheet, and Tom Pope fired home the winner against his former club.

The away side enjoyed more possession during the first half and they went close through Neil Danns and Nicky Maynard, but those missed opportunities came back to haunt them.

Just six minutes after the restart, Pope found the back of the net from 10 yards following some tidy work from Mitch Clark down the right-hand side.

Luke Hannant then almost doubled Vale's lead before Danny Mayor rattled the crossbar for Bury, but Neil Aspin's men hang on to secure all three points in front of the home support.
