History of the Notts. County v Bury fixture

Notts. County prepare to entertain Bury at Meadow Lane on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Magpies are clearly on top, having won 26 and lost only 11 of the 51 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Meadow Lane was less than a year ago, in May 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League Two match.
