We take a look back to 1989 and a crucial play-off semi-final second-leg encounter with Preston North End.

See our complete coverage of the 1989 promotion
One of the most important seasons in the club’s recent history as they won promotion under John Rudge, our special section includes coverage of the play-off final plus reports on the rest of the season.
Vale had drawn the first-leg 1-1 in a game somewhat overshadowed by a fire under the wooden away end.
But they clinched a place in the final with a 3-1 win thanks to another hat-trick by striker Darren Beckford.
