Manager Rob Page says he was delighted that Vale were able to secure a win and a clean-sheet at Blackpool.
Vale won the game 1-0 thanks to an AJ Leitch-Smith goal but Page was most pleased about the way the Vale closed out the game in the final stages.
He told the media: “That has been the problem for us in the first half of the season and thankfully they have taken on board what we have said. It is just managing the game and seeing games out.
“We had to dig deep in the last five minutes and to a man everyone stood up to be counted today. “
