Mansfield 1-4 Bury- Match Report

Last updated : 25 February 2014
Shakers east past sorry StagsDaniel Nardiello grabbed a crucial eight-minute brace as Bury made it six games unbeaten by powering to a 4-1 win at relegation rivals Mansfield.After a fine home win over Fleetwood on Saturday, the Stags produced a pale shadow of that display as they turned in one of their worst 90 minutes of the season.A scrappy first 25 minutes saw the deadlock broken when Mansfield paid the price for giving Danny Mayor too much time and space on the ball and he drilled a low finish across Alan Marriott and inside the far post from 20 yards.Nardiello almost doubled that advantage after 39 minutes as he turned a low Mayor cross at goal first time from six yards

Bury believed Marriott made a fine fingertip save as the ball threatened to fly under the crossbar, but the referee gave only a goal-kick.Andrew Tutte had already forced a low save from Marriott before Nardiello doubled Bury's lead after 56 minutes.Standing at the far post, his finish from Mayor's low ball from the right byline hit a post, rolled across the goal and over the line.Eight minutes later Nardiello controlled a long ball downfield and lobbed Marriott superbly from the right of the box to make it 3-0.Sam Clucas gave Mansfield faint hope when he netted off the underside of the bar after Brian Jensen had failed to properly deal with a Colin Daniel cross, palming the ball to him.But just a minute later at the other end, Marriott pushed a Craig Jones cross to Jake Carroll, who drilled high into the top corner from 14 yards
