    FA Cup Preview. Do we stand a chance?


    by The Boy Holty

    Bury can surely look forward to a rest day on December 7th as it will be Cambridge United who will undoubtedly be taking part in the FA Cup second round.

    Go ahead and prove me wrong Bury, but I can't see much hope for the misfiring Shakers as Conference league leaders and defensive misers Cmabridge visit Gigg in what would be labelled as an 'upset', although they're probably better than most league two sides and this time next season will be in the top two or three in this league without a doubt.

    They have conceeded just 7 goals in their 17 games so far and looking at their results, you might be forgiven you were looking at Arsenal's results from 20 years ago: 1-0, 1-0, 1-0, 1-0 with the occasional 5 goal thrashing thrown in for good measure.

    Bury are going to need to put in their best performance of the season to get past this lot, and if they don't then we'll be bemoaning another home defeat and another early cup exit.
