Bury boss Alan Knill praised Accrington’s managerial duo ahead of the clash tomorrow.
Knill has helped to turn the Shakers from relegation candidates to promotion-chasers in the last three seasons and he has full respect for the job John Coleman and Jimmy Bell have done at the Crown Ground.
"It’s always a tough game as they are a really good side – especially playing them at Accrington.
"John and Jimmy have done an unbelievable job there.
"Every year they produce great footballing teams and this year is no different."
Bury beat Accrington 3-0 in the first fixture at Gigg Lane in October.
"We won the game 3-0 but it could have gone either way," Knill said.
"They had some chances early in the game and if they had taken them it would have been a different game.
"Luckily we took our chances when they came.
"I don’t take that as any indication of how tomorrow’s game will go."
Bury have just extended Nicky Ajose’s loan from Manchester United to the end of the season and ex-Red loanee Tom Lees has also signed up at Gigg Lane until the end of the campaign.
