Port Vale had just lost a promotion-winning manager (sound familiar?) and a rookie was in charge for the home game against Wimbledon. We leaf through the matchday programme…
The Valiants won the game 2-0 thanks to goals from Eamon O’Keefe and Mark Bright who presciently were both featured (along with midfielder Terry Armstrong) on the programme front cover. It was Bright’s first goal of the season and he would go on to score ten from just 31 starts.
