Two goals just before half time were enough as Bournemouth beat Newport 2-0 in a home league fixture at Canford Arena.
Brennan Camp got the scoring started with a header before Jordan Green claimed a second ahead of half time.
The Cherries dominated the ball throughout but despite a host of efforts were unable to add to their tally after the break.
The first major chance came when Mihai Dobre acrobatically met a cross into the box, his bicycle kick flying over the bar.
Mikael Ndjoli's slick ball across the face of goal couldn't be converted while Green smuggled a shot narrowly wide when taking a through ball into the box.
Ten minutes before the break the Cherries finally turned their domination of possession into a goal; Camp left in too much space from a Kyle Taylor corner to head home.
A second soon followed as Green took advantage of some hesitant defending to control a Nnamdi Ofoborh pass and rifle home.
The second half began and within two minutes Dobre threatened a third, the attacker stabbing wide when a free kick broke to him in the box.
Ndjoli forced the County 'keeper into a low save, with Bournemouth looking to turn the screw on a side whose first team had played 24 hours earlier.
A Dobre firecracker fizzed just past the angle while Ndjoli dragged a 20-yarder wide, Newport continually stubborn defensively.
A magnificent save from the visiting 'keeper kept out Ndjoli's header as into the final minutes County began a rare series of attacks.
Lewis Collins saw a shot deflect wide for the Exiles though Callum Stanton's clean sheet rarely looked in doubt.
Ndjoli continued to hunt for a third late on, but fired over in injury time as he ran onto Keelan O'Connell's pass, the game finishing 2-0 in the home side's favour.
