I would bet my life on Danny Nardiello scoring, says Bury strike partner Danny Hylton

DANNY Hylton is relishing finally getting to play alongside fellow Rotherham United striker Danny Nardiello.

Both forwards started off the season at the New York Stadium but, after falling out of favour, find themselves leading the line for the Shakers.

On paper, it looks like a fantastic partnership, with the two frontmen banging in 31 goals in League Two last season between them.

Nardiello, aged 32, fired in 19 for the Millers as they won promotion to League One, while Hylton, aged 24, found the net 12 times in a struggling Aldershot side that was eventually relegated, before joining Rotherham in the summer.

They had little chance to play together this season before being shipped out on loan, but Hylton is now eager to make up for lost time.

“I played with him once, just a in a reserve game (at Rotherham),” said the young striker.

“But while I didn’t get to play with him much, I could see how good he was from when I watched him in training.”

Nardiello took his form from last season into League One, scoring five goals in his first four matches.

But while his matchwinner against Hartlepool on Tuesday was his first goal in nine matches, Nardiello’s new strike partner believes it is only a matter of time before he hits top form again.

“Nards is a brilliant player. Look at where he has played – Champions League and stuff,” he said.

“He’s a goal machine and he’s also a clever player who can make chances for himself, so it’s going to be great to play with him.

“You give him a chance and I would trust him with my life to score.”

While all eyes have been on Nardiello, Hylton has been quietly going about his business.

He opened his account for Bury at Bristol Rovers and added his first on home turf against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Hylton’s work rate, as well as his goals, has also caught the eye, with boss Ronnie Jepson as well as the fans.

“He’s a smashing lad, a lovely lad to have around the place,” beamed the caretaker manager.

“As you can see, he has got a great work ethic. He’s still learning the game in some respects but he just wants to play.

“He is a bit of a throwback. He’s proper. You can see he enjoys the game, like when you were a kid playing on the fields. He’s one of them. That’s the way he plays and it’s very refreshing.”

If these 2 show the same work ethic and desire as they did on Tuesday night, then we'll be fine....the goals will come.

I echo those sentiments too,probably the one thing that has been missing from our season a goal threat and now we have two hungry strikers who can provide us with that.

On another note it was good to see that Barks aka Shifty got the boot yesterday at Crawley, this week just gets better and better.

Nards has always been a goal scorer, in his blood. If you look back at Rotherham's promo season, he was on the card many, many times.
If Danny can step up as well and create a good partneership, who knows how quickly we can go up the league.

We could well bag another 3 points or at least 1 down in Devon.
