Football - Hylton set for Shakers bow

On-loan striker Danny Hylton could be in line for his debut as managerless Bury start life without Kevin Blackwell down at Fratton Park against Portsmouth.

PA Sport Report

The Shakers axed Blackwell on Monday morning after a run of seven games without a victory and, just 24 hours later, Hylton was brought in to Gigg Lane on a deal from Rotherham.

Ronnie Jepson will take charge on the south coast but he will be without midfielder Marco Navas, who will not travel due to a hamstring injury.

Jepson will run the rule over Craig Jones (groin) before determining if he can feature but striker Tope Obadeyi (groin) will return to contention.
