Match Preview: Bury v Newport County

23 October 2018

The Shakers and the Exiles will meet at the Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane on Tuesday evening.

Bury will be looking to carry on where they left off, after a convincing 4-0 win over Notts County on Saturday.

Nicky Maynard started the scoring with his fourth goal in three games, before teeing up strike partner Dominic Telford to double the lead. Second-half goals from Jay O'Shea and Nicky Adams secured the points.

In contrast, Newport suffered a heavy 4-1 loss at Crawley Town for their second away defeat of the season.

When asked if a repeat of Saturday's result would be nice, Ryan Lowe was cautiously optimistic of his side's chances: "The same again would be nice, yeah, but we're not taking anything for granted. Nothing's certain in this game, there's plenty more games to play ad we'll just move onto the next one now.

"It's great winning 4-0, but it's not going to happen every week. Any win's a win, but we'll respect Newport County. They've got a good, young manager who's on the up and they're doing really well.

"We'll lock horns on Tuesday night for another three points, but they'll be in the same position".
