Bury v Port Vale

Bury 0-1 Port Vale

Bury   0 - 1   Port Vale

Port Vale showed their promotion credentials by kicking off the season with a hard-fought win at Bury.

The visitors came close to breaking the deadlock in the first half with Gary Roberts, Sean Rigg and Anthony Griffith all going close.

The Valiants took the lead midway through the second-half, full-back Lee Collins lashing home from 10 yards.

Bury rarely threatened, their best chance coming when Ryan Lowe headed wide from an Andy Haworth cross.


Bury manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"Obviously we're disappointed but it was quite a good game and we played well.

"Yes, we've lost the first game but I thought there were quite a few positives to take out of it like we've let 12 players out and brought whatever in so it's going to take a while.

"I'm just disappointed with the goal but overall I'm quite happy with the performance."

Port Vale manager Micky Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:
"We hadn't won in at Bury in 23 years so it's good to put that record straight and we did it by putting in a good team performance.

"The lads all did as I asked them to and I can't fault the effort and spirit they gave for the full 90 minutes.

"Now we will keep our feet on the ground and look to build on what was a great opening day result."
