Port Vale’s League 1 season continued with a draw against Coventry at Vale Park on Sunday.

A late second half equaliser secured Vale a point against Coventry, who saw their own promotion hopes damaged with the Valiants’ own top six hopes perhaps boosted by this point.

Jacob Murphy, after Coventry ‘keeper Reice Charles-Cook had denied Vale several times, put the Sky Blues ahead just before the break with Sam Kelly rescuing a point on 84-minutes to extend the unbeaten home run to 10-matches.

These were the other results.

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Wigan (two-nil), Millwall (three-nil) and Barnsley (three-nil) for me.

Wigan are looking a good bet for a top two automatic place and at this stage you wouldn’t bet against them coming through to win the title with the two-nil win at Sheffield United leaving them well placed but the Bramall Lane defeat was a setback for the Blades’ own hopes.

Another side, perhaps not looking like they’ll challenge for automatic (unless the impressive run continues), that looks good for a top six finish and a play-off place is Millwall with them going away from second place Walsall with a three-nil win at the Banks’ Stadium.

Barnsley recovered from the loss of boss Lee Johnson, who opted to leave for former club Bristol City, in positive fashion with a three-nil win over Bury at Oakwell to keep the winning run going to leave them looking for to come from relegation trouble to a play-off place perhaps!

Not only do we want you looking, as you are now, we’re also looking for your thoughts and views on this result, so do share some of those with your comments below.
