Port Vale 0-1 Stockport

Luke Beckett struck in the 17th minute to give Stockport a much-needed victory away at struggling Port Vale.

The result leaves Vale bottom of the table and Brian Horton's side are still to earn a point as their miserable start continues.

Striker Beckett picked up John Hardiker's pass and made no mistake with a deadly right-foot finish from the corner of the area, giving goalkeeper Mark Goodlad no chance.

County player-boss Carlton Palmer could have extended his side's lead but his header from six yards flew woefully wide of the upright.

The Hatters managed to cling on to claim three valuable points.


Port Vale: Goodlad, Ingram, Rowland, Walsh, Collins, McCarthy, Armstrong, Durnin, Brisco, McPhee, Angell. Subs: Delaney, Cummins, Bridge-Wilkinson, Paynter, Charnock.

Stockport: Jones, Challinor, Palmer, Clare, Gibb, Clark, Hardiker, Lambert, Briggs, Beckett, Burgess. Subs: Ingham, Goodwin, Daly, Lescott, Ellison.

Referee: H Webb (S Yorkshire).
