New boss David Flitcroft revealed he was hopeful Soares would play some part earlier in the week, but his hamstring injury is worse than first feared and the midfielder will be given plenty of time to rest with the Shakers in rude health elsewhere.
There are no other injury or suspension concerns for Flitcroft to worry about, although it was confirmed last weekend that on-loan striker Danny Hylton would go back to Rotherham after sustaining a groin injury.
One of the players who Bury will not come up against is striker Tope Obadeyi, who has been borrowed by the Pilgrims but is unable to play against his parent club.
