Bury striker Danny Nardiello targets old-boy double

FORMER Exeter striker Danny Nardiello is hoping to make it two in two when he re-visits the Devon club with Bury tomorrow.

The 31-year-old loan signing opened his account for the Shakers on Tuesday night against Hartlepool, another of his former clubs, and is eager to extend that record at St James’s Park.

“I scored against them (Exeter) last year, so it would be nice to score another and obviously get a win,” said Nardiello, who joined Bury from League One side Rotherham United two weeks ago.

He has started the last two league matches for the Shakers, forming a promising partnership with fellow Rotherham loanee Danny Hylton.

Hylton was on target in Bury’s 1-1 draw at home to AFC Wimbledon last Saturday before Nardiello bagged the only goal of the game against Hartlepool, securing the Shakers’ first win at home since August 31.

The victory moved the JD Stadium outfit up to 20th in the League Two table, still only three points above the drop zone.

But Nardiello, who started his career at Manchester United, promised much more to come from him and the team as a whole.

“Three points on Saturday is the main thing,” he said.

“I think we have only lost one in six now, so we are going places – moving forward and working as a team to get there.

“We could have scored more so we need to maybe put more of our chances away.”

Hylton believes that, when his strike partner hits top form, he will be very difficult to stop.

“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 great to play with him.

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

Caretaker boss Ronnie Jepson yesterday swooped to sign 20-year-old Sunderland defender Scott Harrison.

The centre-back, who has not yet played for his parent club after signing from Darlington in October 2012, has joined Bury on loan until January 1 and will go straight into the squad to face Exeter.

Captain Andy Procter is also available for the trip to Devon after being suspended for Tuesday’s match.

If Nardiello can do what a another veteran experienced striker did when Bury gave Lowe the chance to resurrect their career when Chester went out the league, all Bury fans will be delighted. Maybe also the wound of Lowe's departure can begin to finally heal. Bury FC fans have always had a special connection with their main gunslinger. From Derek Spence and Craig Madden, through to 'Bish' and 'Lowey'.

All Bury fans hope you can be the one to grab the crown now! It's been rolling around on the floor, getting kicked around like an old coke can since Lowe left. Nobody has had the talent or guts to pick it up and wear it since Lowe.

That's easy to say just put all of the pressure on Nards and say he is our new Ryan Lowe.It's a team game mate one player doesn't make a team.

Ryan was a natural born leader and with the help of other strong personalities like Schuey,Wozza and Skarz we got promoted."Get Real"

You didn't read closely what I said obviously Eileenshaker. I started with the word "If". Because who frankly knows. We as Shakers fans live in hope always more than anything else in recent years.
I remember when Knill picked up two experienced strikers on frees. Lowe and Carlton. He said then, "You can't have enough good experienced strikers". Nobody was to know when both were signed how different they were to turn out for Bury. How many fans knew much about either player before they were signed? Only through time did we learn what kind of player they were.
There was obviously other things going on behind the scenes at Rotherham with Nardiello we don't know about. The fans liked him. He scored goals. We should know first hand from our 'Blackwell experience' how a player can be disliked by a manager . My biggest fear when KB came in was he would gut and fillet that very promo heart and core. Which he did. We are back to square 1 again, at the wrong end of L2 as when Knill came in.
I'm quite sure Nardiello is both a big enough boy and experienced enough to handle any pressure my comment might put him under . More importantly I think he feels he has something to proove, and a hunger and desire to do it. Very happy to be at Bury to be given the chance to do it too. Lets just hope he can for our sake, and then it doesn't affect or stop us signing him. As a loanee, if he does well and Rotherham want him back or too much money or their manager changes. They might want him back. A lot of maybes......but at least we can start with a hope finally?
