Football - Soares set to miss out for Shakers

Bury are likely to be without midfielder Tom Soares again when they visit Newport.

PA Sport Report

Soares came off against Torquay with a hamstring complaint and missed Saturday's home draw with Dagenham as a result.

Shakers boss David Flitcroft revealed the problem was only minor but was exercising caution for fears he could be out for longer. The ex-Barnsley manager added there is an outside chance that Soares could play in Wales, although a comeback against either Exeter or Scunthorpe looks more likely.

Brian Jensen will continue in goal after reprising his role between the sticks against Dagenham. The veteran had been dropped for teenager Reice Charles-Cook but Flitcroft does not think he is ready for Sky Bet League Two football just yet.
