‘Winning ugly’ was the phrase uttered on Tuesday night as Millwall edged past Fleetwood Town by a single goal, courtesy of Steve Morison’s lob shortly into the second half. This Saturday, the Lions are on the road for their penultimate away game of the regular league season. A play-off place could be all but mathematically secured as Neil Harris’ men travel to Bury. Michael Fogg provides ‘The View From The Opposition’…
Name: Michael Fogg
First Bury game: Bury v Blackpool in 1953.
Greatest moment following Bury: Seeing the team come out of the tunnel at the old Wembley Stadium for the play-off final. We lost.
Bury’s season is over, with the club bobbing around in lower mid-table – is that what you expected in August?: It is more than I expected, to be honest.
On the contrary, Millwall are in the top six and can all but mathematically seal a play-off place on Saturday – how do you see their season finishing?: I will be surprised if Millwall do not make the play-off final.
Who are Bury’s ‘ones to watch’ on Saturday?: At the moment, on current form, Danny Mayor (number 10) and Craig Jones (number 14).
Which Millwall players do you think Bury will need to be wary of?: Steve Morison. After Tuesday night’s goal against Fleetwood Town, it is clear that he will have to be the one who needs closely marking.
Finally, how do you see the game going?: It’ll be a close encounter, with Bury playing a 4-4-2 formation.
Score Prediction: Bury 1-1 Millwall.
Michael’s Team Prediction: Neal; Jones, Hussey, P.Clarke, Bolger; Mayor, Soares, Gardner, O’Sullivan; L.Clarke, Pope.
Bury welcome Millwall to Gigg Lane on Saturday, April 23rd. Kick-off is at 3pm.
