Manager Neil Aspin says Port Vale “deserved to win the match” against Grimsby Town on Saturday.
Vale were denied a win of 2018 after Michael Tone missed a penalty and then the side conceded a late Grimsby equaliser.
The manager told the official Port Vale website: “You’ve asked me across the last few weeks where we haven’t deserved to get anything from the game, but today we deserved to win the match.
“If it hadn’t have been for their goalkeeper, who had an inspired game today, we would have come back with the three points.
“I have seen enough from the players today which shows me that we can pick up the necessary points.”
