Match ends, Newport County 3, Bury 1.
Newport County moved to within two points of the League Two play-off places with victory over Bury, who dropped out of the automatic promotion spots.

Jamille Matt then fired Newport into a 2-1 lead after 13 minutes.
Demetriou struck his second after the break to seal an important win.
Newport climb up to 11th place in the League Two table, two points adrift of the play-off spots and with a game in hand on Exeter, who occupy the last of those four places.
