Two-goal scorer Louis Dodds says the team were “delighted” to get three points against local rivals Crewe.
Dodds told the Port Vale website: “We’re delighted because we set out to get three points and I think we had the majority of the play and we had the best chances.
“Sometimes you get that in derby games where it’s very scrappy but we would have been delighted with a one-nil off someone’ backside but to get three-nil in a local derby, we’re absolutely delighted with it.
“It’s fantastic for everyone connected with it, you could feel the passion from the fans before the game.
“It was nice to get on the score sheet and send them home happy and hopefully they’ll come back next week.”
