They could conceivably draw the 90 minute match and both go through, as both teams will get at least a point whether they win or lose on penalties. Hope that makes sense!
Thanks we shall pass that on to Nigel and Matt. Maybe they haven't dialled in quite yet...
The two teams walk out onto the pitch now - kick off is almost upon us
Former Potter Tom Soares is amongst Bury's subsitutes tonight, who have a lively bunch of fans here in the Upper Tier of the Q-railing Stand
Peter Crouch gets the game underway with City shooting towards the Sharp Stand in this first half
A cold rainy night here at the bet365 Stadium
Edwards flights a ball into the box from the right hand side for Crouch but that one is easy enough for Ben Williams to claim
A rough challenge on Imbula near the halfway line there, that's two suffered by him now. Bury players looking to rough up our foreign selection of players, perhaps?
Ngoy puts Neil Danns under pressure and he has to rush a backpass to his keeper. That one was wayward and it's a Stoke corner
In it comes and Bury put it back behind for another. Crouch rises in a bid to get on the end of it but the referee penalises him for a foul and the free kick is awarded to the visitors
Edwards gets flattened on the flank in another tough tackle from Bury. That one looked a bit late too
Action at the other end and Bojan does well to feed Ngoy in on the left hand side. He turns inside his man and gets in the area but looks to turn inside another before shooting and is challenged. He's got his head in his hands there, he knows he should have taken a shot
A good interception by Taylor on the left and he sends Ngoy through on the counter. He takes on his man and seemingly wins a corner but the referee points for a goal kick
Bury free kick near the corner flag on the right wing
Banks rises to head clear before the flag goes up for offside when it's lifted back in
Edwards with a poor ball back inside and Bury have a man racing at goal. He shoots from the edge of the area where Haugaard tips it around the post for a corner. An effort goes wide from the ball in
Walker fires over the bar from 25 yards out
Ngoy threatens again at the other end and turns Danns well before approaching the goal from the flank. This time he does go for goal but he lifts his shot narrowly over the bar
Crouch wrestled down to the ground by Bury captain Kay. Referee Ben Toner eventually gives Stoke a free kick and action resumes from the middle of the visitors' half
Verlinden looks to get the better of his man and cross into the box. It takes a touch off the defender and drops onto the roof of the net for a corner. Bury clear their lines when the ball is delivered into the box, sadly.
Superb run from deep by Imbula, holding off his man and beating another before releasing Bojan with a ball into the box. He takes a touch before shooting but that one is saved by the keeper. The defender is quick to put it behind for a corner, another one which is eventually cleared
Edwards again gets forward on the overlap and puts a cross into the box for Crouch at the back post. That one is turned behind for yet another corner. And again Bury get it away
After a tricky start the Potters have begun to grow in this one and take the game to the opposition
Leycgne booked for a foul on the Bury right wing. A free kick here on the corner of the box for the Shakers and all 11 get back into the area for Stoke
Bojan slides to get a foot to the ball and hook it away
Bury corner now in the 32nd minute
Haugaard with an easy shot to save from James Vaughan. Still goalless here 35 minutes in
