Three goals in a scintillating first half helped Exeter to a 3-2 victory over Bury at St James' Park.

The hosts made a flying start and found themselves 2-0 up inside the opening nine minutes. The first goal came when Billy Jones' corner kick found its way to Troy Archibald-Henville and he headed home his second goal of the season.

Daniel Nardiello quickly made it 2-0 after Jake Taylor was fouled by Efe Sodje inside the box and the former Manchester United trainee coolly dispatched the penalty into the bottom corner.

Liam Sercombe saw his shot hit the underside of the crossbar for Exeter before Bury pulled a goal back when David Amoo finished from close range after a goalmouth scramble.

Richard Logan made it 3-1 just before half-time when he nodded in at the back post after a brilliant run and cross by Taylor.

After the excitement of the first half, the second was much quieter with chances few and far between. Bury had the better of it and substitute Ashley Eastham capitalised on some shoddy defending by Exeter at a corner, but his goal came too late in the day for the visitors.
