Bury v Shrewsbury - Saturday 15:00
Bury bagged an overdue win last weekend, putting Port Vale to the sword in a manner that restored some faith in their impressive early-season performance data. With a 62.5 per cent shot ratio, the Shakers are currently the second-most dominant team in League One. Having found the net just three times in the first 395 minutes, they've now scored seven times in the last 135.
James Vaughan appears to have been the catalyst for the upsurge in cutting edge. The former Huddersfield and Birmingham striker netted on his debut in the three-goal fightback at Walsall then bagged a first-half brace against the Valiants before being substituted, with David Flitcroft is promising to manage the injury-prone centre forward properly.
All of which in mind, there's mileage in the 23/20 on the home win and it's worth backing up with a bet on the Bury/Bury half time/full time outcome at 5/2. Shrewsbury have been involved in some ding-dong encounters over the past few weeks, taking six points from three matches in which they've conceded one goal, on average, every 45 minutes.
But they've ultimately been dominated for the most part and have stayed in games by pouncing on lapses in concentration. If this follows a similar pattern, Bury could quickly put the contest to bed in a spell of rapid fire. Their three goals against the Saddlers were scored in the space of 19 minutes, while they were 3-0 up inside 30 against Vale.
