Bury St Edmunds are looking to pull off a shock and claim the scalp of league leaders Old Albanian tomorrow (3pm), writes Duncan Browne.

The high-flying Hertfordshire outfit will arrive at the Haberden on the back of an all-conquering 12-game winning run.

But Bury would love to be the team to stop their guests in their tracks and send out a message to the rest of National League Two South.

Bury currently sit in 10th in the standings, 41 points behind their oponents — a gap which is greater than the 36 points the hosts have accumulated so far this term.

But as well as claiming an impressive scalp, Gavin Hogg’s side will also want to record a positive result to put Saturday’s 22-8 defeat at Redruth behind them.

Bury will also be buoyed by the fact that they will be in action at home.

On familiar soil, the side have won three of their previous four league matches.

On the road, however, it is a different story with the past three contests all being defeats.

Old Albanian recorded a 46-11 victory when the two teams met in St Albans back in September.
