SHAKERS FLEX THEIR MUSCLES WITH WIN
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.
