We look at some of the potentially key players tonight

Here`s who to look out for when Bolton Wanderers face local rivals Bury in a highly anticipated Sky Bet League One match.

The goalkeepers: Mark Howard (Bolton) vs Ben Williams (Bury)

Two very experienced goalkeepers going head to head. More of you may know more about Mark, ex Sheffield United and has plenty of experience playing against teams like Bury. A good shot stopper and diverse in his play, Mark is a great goalkeeper at this level and hopefully he has a good game against a lively James Vaughan.

Ben Williams on the other hand also has tons of experience. Playing at Bradford with Phil Parkinson last season he also is known for his demanding presence in the goal. The 6`2 goalkeeper kept 25 clean sheets throughout Bradford`s campaign last season which shows his quality.

The defenders: Mark Beevers (Bolton) vs Niall Maher (Bury)

Two names that Bolton fans should know. Firstly, the versatile Mark Beevers. He has had a strong start to the campaign excelling in the last three matches which have all been clean sheets. Mark will have to be on top form to keep James Vaughan quiet.

Niall Maher, formerly of Bolton, should also be a familiar name. He was released by Bolton at the end of the season when his contract expired and was scouted by David Flitcroft. Many Bury fans have commented on his recent performances by how positive he is in the defensive third and cannot believe he`s only 21 with the quality he possesses.

The midfielders: Jay Spearing (Bolton) vs Neil Danns (Bury)

Another two names that Bolton fans should know. The ex Liverpool midfielder has also had a strong start to his league one campaign. Scoring twice already, Spearing won player of the month award in August for such positive performance. Bolton fans will be hoping he will be at his best tonight. On the other hand you have Neil Danns. The ex Bolton midfielder made the move across the A58 over the summer after three seasons at the Macron.

The forwards: Zach Clough and James Vaughan

In form strikers are the one area where Bury may have the upper hand. Vaughan is in decent form with five from his last eight.

Our strikers have struggled in front of goal, but Clough got off the mark with a brace last weekend and has a technical ability nobody on the pitch tonight can match
