Port Vale   0 - 0   Bournemouth

Port Vale 0-0 Bournemouth

Port Vale 0-0 Bournemouth

League Two leaders Bournemouth were made to fight hard for their point at Port Vale, who extended their winless run to five games.

Although Bournemouth dominated early on, they were lucky that Marc Richards' 36th-minute header and a curling shot from Kris Taylor both hit the woodwork.

Brett Pitman's glancing header then hit the Vale post in the second half.

Vale keeper Chris Martin also denied Pitman, stretching out a leg to deny him after good work by Steve Fletcher.

Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell has confirmed to BBC Radio Solent that the club have been permitted a second emergency loan signing by the Football League to counter their injury problem.


Port Vale manager Micky Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:

"I thought we started very tentatively against a good side.

"We should have capitalised on good chances before the half-time break, so I was disappointed still to be at 0-0 at half-time.

"I thought we should have had a penalty in the second half, but I was pleased for the players that they managed to get something out of the game."

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told BBC Radio Solent:

"I thought for the first half an hour it was probably as good as we've played all season.

"It's always a tough place to come but I thought we played some excellent football and perhaps we were unlucky not to get the points.

"Our back four were excellent and our goalkeeper solid. We're pleased to keep our good defensive run going."
