Port Vale’s League 1 season continued with a win against Fleetwood at the Highbury Stadium on Saturday.

A win, with Port Vale coming from behind to win two-one at Fleetwood, ended a run of successive defeat for the Valiants.

Fleetwood went ahead through Grant (14) early on, with the Cod Army taking this into the break but the changes made, and the word Page had, made a difference with Daniel (56) coming off the bench to fire Port Vale level.

Daniel, with him fouled by Fleetwood’s Nirennold, was also involved in the winner with him brought down in the box. Foley (65) took this to get the goal, not quite the hat-trick though, he wanted that he had spoken about ahead of the game to win it for the Valiants!

These were the match highlights.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 26th September 2015
Barnsley 2-0 Gillingham
Bradford 0-2 Peterborough
Bury 2-1 Coventry
Chesterfield 1-2 Burton
Fleetwood 1-2 Port Vale
Millwall 3-1 Rochdale
Oldham 1-1 Wigan
Sheff Utd 3-1 Doncaster
Shrewsbury 2-0 Blackpool
Southend 2-1 Scunthorpe
Swindon 1-2 Colchester
Walsall 1-1 Crewe

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Peterborough and Colchester, a few others make you sit up and take interest – even these two weren’t overly surprising as such – but there weren’t really any major surprises as such really?

Graham Westley, who will be under pressure to do a job as his appointment appears to have been made to a ‘mixed response’ at Peterborough, started with a win for Posh! A two-nil win at Bradford saw the home sides unbeaten run ended and not only got Westley off to a winning start but also kept an unbeaten run that Posh had been on going!

I’m not sure we should be ‘surprised’ by another Colchester win really! This win at Swindon makes it three in a row after wins at Sheffield United and the win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against previously unbeaten Gillingham last weekend. This time the U’s saw off the Robins two-one to continue the unbeaten run, which extends to four-matches now.

Port Vale are back in action this midweek with another League 1 game against Oldham at Vale Park on Tuesday.
