Southend have scored 49 goals against Saturday’s opposition with Bury scoring 48 against us.

The only cup competition the two sides have met in was in the FA Cup in the 2012/13 season with both fixtures ending in a 1-1 draw, the second leg was held at Roots Hall and after the 1-1 draw and extra time the game went to penalties which saw Blues win 3-2.

Blues have only lost three times against the Shakers when at Roots Hall, with our last defeat at home being back in 2003.

Out of 15 draws against Bury four have been 0-0, eight have been 1-1, one has been 2-2 and two have been 3-3.
