Port Vale   4 - 0   Grimsby

Port Vale romped to victory over 10-man Grimsby with goals from Louis Dodds, Marc Richards, Gareth Owen and Lee Collins while also missing a penalty.

Dodds opened the scoring just before the break with a left-foot volley from six yards before Richards got a touch on Tommy Fraser's floated free-kick.

Danny Boshell's foul on Lewis Haldane saw him sent off but Marc Richards's spot kick was well saved by Lillis.

Owen headed home Fraser's corner for 3-0, with Collins completing the rout.


Port Vale manager Micky Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:

"The goal just before half time meant that Grimsby had to change their tactics slightly.

"Getting that first goal was really important to us, as it settled us down.

"It's a great feeling winning any game of football and at the minute we're on a bit of a run and confidence is high."
