The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BURY cer­tainly showed why they were among the pre-sea­son favourites for pro­mo­tion with a dom­i­nant per­for­mance to leapfrog Bur­ton Al­bion at the top of the ta­ble.

Bur­ton showed glimpses of why they were at the sum­mit but lacked the fi­nal prod­uct for the majority of the game un­til Ja­cob Blyth headed a con­so­la­tion.

Su­per ban­tamweight world cham­pion Scott Quigg may have been the guest of hon­our at the JD Sta­dium but it was Bury sub­sti­tute Danny Nardiello who de­liv­ered the knock­out blow with two sec­ond-half goals to se­cure the three points for the Shak­ers.

The first half lacked qual­ity but Bury were ahead inside three min­utes of the restart with Nardiello fin­ish­ing off a flow­ing run from Danny Mayor be­fore a 50/50 ball spi­ralled into the air and into the net via the bot­tom of Ryan Lowe’s boot.

Bur­ton’s tor­tu­ous af­ter­noon was summed up by the third goal when mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tion at the back laid Nardiello’s sec­ond on a plate.
