Bury 3 Notts County 3. Whilst the focus of the National press may have been on the game involving the England team playing Brazil in the Middle East Bury were entertaining high flying Notts County who are now owned by a collection of Middle Eastern investors and whose Director of Football is none other than the former England Team Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.
Grey skies and heavy rain had left the pitch fairly sticky to say the least and I think it is a credit to both teams that they were able to serve up such an entertaining game. As viewers across the Country to the last night’s BBC League highlights show will have seen Bury were denied another goal when on loan debutant Danny Nardiello’s goal bound shot came to a halt in the goal mouth mud only inches from crossing the line.
I was glad I decided to brave the weather and go down to watch the game. Looking at my future diary I fear I may not be able to get to too many more games before Christmas – in fact there are only three home games left before Christmas! I urge any Shakers fans who have not been down to Gigg Lane recently to try and see the team because if yesterday’s game is anything to go by they will not be disappointed.
