Berrett on standby for Bury return

James Berrett is on standby for a possible return against Bury this afternoon with captain Paul Thirlwell doubtful with a calf injury.

Berrett has been out with a groin injury but could be plunged straight back into the side for the crunch basement clash at Brunton Park after fellow midfielder Thirlwell joined the crocked list.

The Blues skipper was subbed with a calf problem early in the first half of the 3-0 Boxing Day win over Hartlepool United, and underwent physio yesterday.

Left-back Chris Chantler, replaced in the closing stages, was also being assessed ahead of today’s game.

But striker Danny Cadamarteri faces two weeks on the sidelines with a calf injury he suffered in training.

Boss Greg Abbott will be reunited with his No2 Graham Kavanagh, who has returned to the club after missing Wednesday’s game with a virus.

Kavanagh had to banish himself from Brunton Park to avoid spreading the virus, with goalkeeper coach Tony Caig acting as Abbott’s No2 against Hartlepool and the Blues manager himself taking the pre-match warm-up.

Bury winger Gregg Wylde hopes to be back in contention after being ruled out for the 0-0 Boxing Day draw with Preston. The 21-year-old Scot extended his loan from Bolton for another month but was then struck by a stomach bug.

Wylde had been star man in the previous game against Shrewsbury, playing his best game yet in a Bury shirt.
