A toothless Port Vale side scraped a goalless draw against Morecambe at the Globe Arena on Saturday.
Micky Adams made one change with youngster Joe Davis replacing Clayton McDonald at the back.
Vale were second-best for much of the first-half with Morecambe unable to make the most of their possession.
Vale’s efforts were few and far apart with Barry Roche rarely troubled in the home goal.
Morecambe spurned numerous chances to open the scoring with the Vale defence leading a charmed life at times.
But nevertheless Vale somehow managed to hold out to record their fourth away draw of the season.
Vale: Tomlinson, Yates, McCombe, Davis, Loft, Rigg (Shuker), Griffith, Marshall (Morsy), Dodds, Pope, Richards
Subs: Roe, James, Williamson
