Port Vale   0 - 1   Cheltenham

Port Vale v Cheltenham

Port Vale 0-1 Cheltenham

Cheltenham sealed a shock away win against Port Vale thanks to a single Jeff Goulding goal.

The home side were reduced to 10-men when Vale captain Gareth Owen was dismissed for a professional foul on Wes Thomas moments before half-time.

Cheltenham secured the points when former Vale defender Keith Lowe's cross fell for Goulding to net his ninth goal of the season.

Vale came closest to an equaliser when Kayleden Brown headed over the bar.


Cheltenham Town assistant manager Neil Howarth told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"Two bits of great quality made the goal; a great cross from Keith Low and a great header form Jeff Goulding.

"I was pretty relaxed in the dug out today, I felt like we were in control of the game.

"We did everything but get a second goal, we controlled the game and had all of the possession. We just weren't quite able to cut them open at times but because we were pushing forward they were on the back foot so not causing us problems defensively."

Port Vale manager Jim Gannon told BBC Radio Stoke:
"It's always going to be an uphill battle when you're down to 10-men.

"I really liked how we went about the second half. I liked the shape that we used and gave ourselves an opportunity to win the game."

"He was clean through on goal and it's a foul to deny him a goal scoring opportunity."
