The Shrews head to Gigg Lane knowing they can move six points clear of Kevin Blackwell's fellow strugglers with a victory.

A run eight points from their last five games has seen Turner's men move out of the bottom four, but he is guarding against complacency.

He told the Shropshire Star: "On paper, these seem to be easier than games against Sheffield United and Milton Keynes Dons, but they can be the most difficult ones.

"Bury are fighting for their lives. We will have to be right at our best to get the points."

He added: "We have been embarrassed by the position we found ourselves in. We have got to build on this."
