Bury bounced back to winning ways with a thoroughly-deserved 2-0 home victory against Barnet.

Daniel Nardiello put the hosts in front with a 45th-minute penalty before David Worrall sealed victory eight minutes from time.

That sent the Shakers back up to eighth after they surrendered an 11-match unbeaten run at Morecambe on Tuesday.

Although winger Albert Adomah and striker Craig McAllister were busy for Barnet, the Bees failed to forge a clear opening throughout.

Bury striker Andy Morrell tested visiting keeper Jake Cole early on before the hosts gained the upper hand after the half-hour mark.

Cole made a fine reflex save to deny Nardiello and the Shakers took the lead as Nardiello sidefooted home with aplomb after Mark Hughes tripped Morrell in the box.

Barnet pegged Bury back after the break but the closest they went was John O'Flynn's shot beyond the far post.

The hosts remained in charge as Stephen Dawson and Worrall fired wide while Morrell blazed over after exchanging passes with Ryan Lowe.

Lowe then headed over from a cross by fellow substitute Richie Baker before Worrall nipped in to seal it eight minutes from the end, with Hughes shown a second yellow card at the death.
