The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THIS was a big game for two sides des­per­ate to se­cure a play-off spot as the sea­son en­ters its de­ci­sive phase.

And there was no doubt­ing who came out on top. Daniel Nardiello has al­ways scored goals at this level and so it was a strange statis­tic to see he had notched only one goal away from the JD Sta­dium this sea­son.

Come May, David Fl­itcroft may look back on his pre-match chat with the big striker as one of the piv­otal mo­ments of the cam­paign if it in­spires Nardiello to go on a scor­ing spree away from home. As pleased as Bury will be, this was a shock to the sys­tem for Ply­mouth.

While Nardiello em­pha­sised how im­por­tant he can be to the vis­i­tors Reuben Reid looks an even more vi­tal cog in the Ply­mouth pro­mo­tion push in his ab­sence.

John Sheri­dan needs his other strik­ers to step up and fill Reid’s boots if his side are to bounce back from this de­feat and go on an­other run, with time tick­ing.
