Defender Chris Robertson says that the side’s clean sheet against rivals Walsall was “very important” after Vale won 1-0 on Saturday.
A solitary strike from Tom Pope was enough to win the game but more significantly was Vale’s first clean sheet since November.
It was achieved thanks to the pairing of Robertson with newcomer Ryan Inniss in central defence and Robertson told the official Port Vale website: “A one-nil win away from home. It shoots us up the table a bit as well so we’re very very pleased. The clean sheet is very important, we made their play predictable and won the game.”
