Bury went down three nil on Friday evening to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.
It was a tough game as expected, and Danny Nardiello scored his first of our pre season campaign so far, but it was Wednesday who opened the scoring early on into the game and summer signing Shwan Jalal was the busier of the keepers and pulled off quite a few decent saves for us keeping the score respectable until we upped our own game.
With five minutes remaining of the opening period, Nardiello slotted home to level the scores after Chris Hussey sent in a free kick.
Nards almost gave us the advantage before the break as well, but forced the keeper into a great save instead.
Following the restart, Wednesday added a second within ten minutes and then manager David Flitcroft made his first change of the night, bringing on trialist and former Shaker Peter Sweeney in place of Chris Sedgwick, and this really kick started the changes for both teams.
Nicky Adams had a good chance to level again after this point, but his effort on 72 minutes sailed over the bar.
This left Wednesday open to get back in their rhythm and they sealed the victory with ten minutes remaining of normal time.
Flitcroft would've now doubt been happy with the workout for fitness purposes though against a good side, and we had enough moments in the game for him to be able to see the training pitch work coming together slowly as it does at this stage of the year.
