Accrington Stanley   1 - 2   Port Vale

Accrington 1-2 Port Vale

Accrington 1-2 Port Vale

Kris Taylor kept Port Vale's play-off charge on track with a 40-yard stunner to secure victory at Accrington.

Valiants striker Craig Davies opened the scoring with a solo effort when he raced on to Doug Loft's ball and finished into the top corner.

Seven minutes after the break, Bobby Grant received the ball 30 yards out and volleyed in the hosts' equaliser.

But then came the spectacular winner with Taylor rifling the ball into the roof of the net after 65 minutes.


Port Vale manager Micky Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:
"I thought it was a terrific performance, we rolled our sleeves up. We adapted well to the conditions and the pitch and we've won ugly, which is great.

"This is a tough place to come and we've had to grind it out.

"I'd also like to thank all of the Vale fans for all the wishes, emails and cards that I've had regarding my dad (who died on Thursday). It's much appreciated by the family."
