WATCH: D-Day For Bury FC

Owner Steve Dale has until midnight to give the EFL guarantees that he can fund the club or they will be thrown out of the football league.

He says the potential investor has requested information from the league and hopes this means he will be given a new deadline from the EFL to secure a deal.

He's hopeful that an agreement could be reached if he is given that extension.

Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham was also down at Gigg Lane yesterday afternoon and he is urging the EFL to give the club more time:“The situation now at Bury is acute and that is why I am making a direct appeal to the EFL to step in and save a footballing institution with 134 years of proud history.

“I know I speak for each and every football fan here in Greater Manchester when I say we all stand in complete solidarity with Shakers supporters. Our city-region has done so much to build our great game over the decades and we are now all looking to those who run our game to intervene and secure the future of Bury football club.”

Bury North MP James Frith has been speaking to Sports Minister Nigel Adams, who has agreed to ask the English Football League to extend tonight's deadline.
