45 - Flynn fires a volley over from 25 yards.
40 - Newport keeper is out quickly to block a Jones break.
39 - Ball breaks to Wilmott on the right of the Bury box and Jensen shows strong hands to block a thunderous shot.
32 - Platt misses the chance of the half, putting a free header in a central position wide of the near post following a clever dinked cross from Hussey.
30 - Good saving tackle by McNulty on Crow after a flick-on into the six-yard box from Minshull.
28 - Weak shot from Tutte drifts wide.
25 – Zebrowski gets in behind the Bury defence but his shot back across goal is well stopped by Jensen.
24 - Great one-handed save low to his right from the Newport keeper after Mayor cut inside and curled one with his right foot towards the bottom corner.
20 - YELLOW - Minshull - shocking studds-up challenge on Jones.
10 - Same tactic almost worked a treat. This time Mayor's cross finds Jones just outside the right edge of the six yard bos, but the ball bobbles awkwardly on the turf off the midfielder and goes out for a goal kick. Great chance.
9 - Jones drags a shot wide of the post after a Mayor cross finds him on the right inside the Newport box.
A noticeable change in tactics from Bury in the opening five minutes here. They are launching it long at every opportunity. Possibly due to the fact that Newport share their pitch with rugby union side Gwent Dragons.
Players are out here at Rodney Parade for a match that looks set to be played in front of a pretty sparse crowd. But the Newport fans around us are making a big enough din. Lets hope they won't have too much reason to cheer during the game. UTS!
Bury field an unchanged starting line-up from the side that held Dagenham & Redbridge to a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
The only change is on the bench, where Nathan Cameron returns in place of Jake Carroll.
