Port Vale: Fans' views
ANOTHER valuable three points gained from a poor game played in difficult conditions.
It was a good finish from Ben Williamson which seemed to take an age to cross the line.
Their equaliser came as Adam Yates got sucked into the middle, leaving their winger plenty of time to put in a pin-point cross.
Vale got back in front early in the second half with a good header from Tom Pope for Ryan Burge to tap in.

Vale still seem to be losing too much possession in all areas of the pitch, but the third goal from a well-taken penalty killed it.
It was a good win, but we need to sharpen up, keep possession better and shut down the opposition more if we're going to get anything out of the cup game at Sheffield United.

WHAT a cracking week! New owners, two wins and we didn't sign Lee Hughes – please, Micky, can't you find somebody else?
The game was never going to be a classic in such wet conditions, but the pitch held up well and only cut up in the deep end, at the bottom of the slope.
Williamson's goal was well-worked, but came against the run of play with Vale struggling to make headway upstream.
We could have been in serious trouble had an official spotted Chris Neal's angry reaction to a late Aldershot challenge.
His mask bears testimony to him being on the end of rough treatment already this season, but he could have been sent off and with no keeper on the bench we might have been in trouble.
Still, another hard-won three points and we remain second at the end of November.
ROB RHEAD, May Bank
IT wasn't the most spectacular victory, but we made our quality count in the end. It was a heavy pitch and conditions were terrible, but these are the games where you have to grind it out and we did that effectively all afternoon.
I was surprised that Micky Adams was going for Lee Hughes, I would have thought we could have done better, but it has been a great week and we can now look forward to an exciting cup game at Sheffield United.
