Bury’s Nathan Cameron could sit out Gills clash


Bury defender Nathan Cameron could be rested again for the Shakers' Sky Bet League One clash with Gillingham.

Cameron’s long-standing knee problem makes it difficult for him to play twice in a week so, after 90 minutes against Blackburn on Monday, he could make way for Adam Thompson.

Danny Mayor and Neil Danns returned from injury and illness respectively against Rovers and played the full game.Craig Jones (thigh), Jermaine Beckford (knee) and Eoghan O’Connell (ruptured ligaments) remain long-term absentees.

Bury will to hope to get back on track after seeing their five-match unbeaten run come to an end at Ewood Park as they look to engineer a miraculous escape from relegation.

Gillingham captain Lee Martin will hope to return to the starting line-up.

The midfielder missed last weekend’s draw with Walsall because of a foot injury and then had to settle for a place on the bench against Shrewsbury in midweek, although he did come on for the final 21 minutes.

Gills boss Steve Lovell could stick with the same line-up for a third match but may feel he needs to freshen things up for the club’s fifth game in 15 days.

Scott Wagstaff and Conor Wilkinson are two players pushing for places in the starting XI but the game will come too soon for defender Alex Lacey (ankle).
