Port Vale   1 - 1   Rochdale

A controversial handball decision against Nathan Stanton handed Port Vale a scrappy opening-day draw.

Marc Richards calmly slotted home the subsequent penalty to secure a point his side had looked unlikely to claim.

Joe Thompson saw a header cleared off the line for the visitors before Chris Martin saved Chris Dagnall's shot.

Thompson nodded in a cross from Will Buckley to open the scoring but a Lee Collins centre struck Stanton's arm to hand the hosts a lifeline.


Port Vale manager Micky Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:
"Was there a gulf between the teams? I think so.

"You saw a Rochdale side that have been put together by Keith [Hill] and come together very nicely.

"But we hung in there, we had to at times, and generally I'm very pleased with everybody."
