One of Vale’s finest cup performances away from home as they defeat First Division Derby County at the Baseball Ground.
Port Vale recorded another famous FA Cup victory under the managership of John Rudge as they defeated top flight Derby County in a replay.
The first leg, at Vale Park, had finished 1-1 after Darren Beckford’s strike had beaten legendary keeper Peter Shilton. But in the replay, Vale went one better.
In front of a crowd of 21,389, Vale’s goals were scored by Derby defender Rob Hindmarch, Ray Walker and a stunning winning strike from Nicky Cross, who capitalised on a surging run from left-back Darren Hughes.
