Match Preview: Newport County vs Bury

18 April 2019

The Shakers are back in action on Good Friday as they travel to Wales to take on Michael Flynn’s Newport County.

Ryan Lowe’s side will be in high spirits, coming into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Play-Off chasing Colchester United.

Saturday’s clean sheet was a big boost to the Shakers, who had previously shipped nine goals in the last three games.

Dom Telford comes into the game in good form, having scored a brace last time out to give his manager a selection headache ahead of the fixture. Ryan Lowe's choices will be bolstered as Danny Mayor is available following a three-match suspension.

The Gaffer knows Newport will be another tough test for his side, but insists the focus is on how his side go about their business, “They’ve got some great players, they’re effective in what they do, we know that. Ultimately, we’ve got to worry about ourselves, and that’s what we’ll certainly do.”

Defender Will Aimson, insisted that the group were grounded, “We’ve done nothing yet and it looks like it could go down to the final game. It’s a bit of a yo-yo at the moment, it’s a bit tight up there so we’ve just got to worry about ourselves. We can only win the next game and hopefully keep ourselves up there.”

Match Report: Newport County 3-1 Bury

19 April 2019

It was a tough afternoon on the Welsh coast for the Shakers, as they fell to defeat against Newport County. Nicky Maynard scored Bury’s 99th goal of the season, but it wasn’t enough as they slipped to defeat.

Ryan Lowe made two changes to his side that were 2-0 victors over Colchester United, as Danny Mayor returned from suspension to replace Neil Danns, with Byron Moore starting in place of the injured Callum McFadzean.

Newport took the lead inside the opening five minutes from a set-piece. Dolan whipped a delivery in from the right-hand-side, allowing Demetriou to steer a header into the back of the net.

The Shakers responded perfectly when Danny Mayor’s ball forward was deflected in such a way that Maynard was in behind. The experienced forward controlled the ball before slotting it into the bottom corner, sending Day the wrong way, taking his tally to twenty-one for the season.

With thirteen minutes on the clock, Jamille Matt put the hosts back ahead. He broke through the defence to get onto a through ball, before slamming a low effort beyond Murphy.

Padraig Amond then controlled a lofted ball beyond Wharton, opening his body up to shoot on goal. He did just that, but Murphy was down quickly to deny the forward.

After a crazy opening to the game, both sides seemed to settle down. The game still flowed end-to-end, but chances weren’t as frequently created as the first thirteen minutes.

There was almost an equaliser for the Shakers in added time of the opening period.  A Nicky Adams free-kick was deep to Will Aimson, who drilled a ball back into the middle. Unfortunately, Chris Stokes was unable to direct the ball towards goal, putting his right-footed effort just wide.

HALF-TIME: Newport County 1-2 Bury

The Shakers got off to a decent start in the second period, keeping the hosts penned in for the opening ten minutes. Ryan Lowe’s side were unable to fashion that clear-cut chance they were after to try and get back into the game.

Matty Dolan had a half chance for the hosts after the ball was played to him around 30-yards from goal. He looked to strike the ball on the bounce, however, he sliced his effort way wide of the mark.

Rangers loanee Jordan Rossiter wasn’t far from levelling the scores when he found himself 20-yards out with space for a shot. He got plenty of power on the ball, just not enough dip as his effort was just too high.

On his return to the side, Danny Mayor almost had the scores level after some trademark trickery! He sent the defender one way then another, creating space for a shot. The strike was a good one, beating Day all ends up, but unfortunately, he hit the bar.

The hosts then had a third, and Demetriou had a second when he fired an effort high beyond Murphy. The ball was played out to him on the left-hand-side of the box, giving him time and space to rifle his strike home.

Bury didn’t give up the fight, and quick link-up play between Maynard and Lavery allowed the latter to get a shot off.  It was blocked by a Newport arm, giving the Shakers a free-kick in a dangerous area. After winning the free-kick, Lavery stepped up to take it, curling an effort past the wall, but just wide of Day’s post.

Harry McKirdy almost added a fourth for the hosts when he was on the end of a long ball, however he was tracked by Rossiter who put enough pressure on him to force him to miss the target.
