Football - Shakers wait on Sodje

Efe Sodje is a doubt for Bury as they head to Bournemouth looking to record their second win of the week.

The veteran defender went straight into manager Kevin Blackwell's starting XI to face Stevenage on Tuesday night on his return from a loan spell at Barrow.

Sodje was unable to complete the full 90 minutes, however, after sustaining a knee injury and is rated 50/50 to keep his place in Blackwell's side.

Carl Regan dropped to the bench to make way for the 40-year-old and is on standby to deputise in central defence.

The Shakers earned a crucial three points with a 2-0 win at Gigg Lane, in front of their lowest home attendance since 1984, and will be brimming with confidence as they travel to the south coast.

Jonson Clarke-Harris came off the bench to wrap up the points against Boro and will be pushing for a start but Tom Soares (hamstring), Phil Picken (knee), Adam Lockwood (groin) and Shane Byrne (blood infection) all miss out.
