Manager Rob Page has praised his Vale squad after their dramatic victory over Gillingham on Saturday.
Page commented: “It is fantastic start to the year for us . I told the lads the importance of the game when they came in. I said that, at 10 past five, I want to be stood in the changing room putting the TV on looking at the table with us in eighth spot, as opposed to getting a defeat, staying where we are and teams around us having games in hand.
“They have reacted in such a positive manner that overall I thought we thoroughly deserved the three points.
“Everyone put an absolute shift in and it’s going to be a squad effort, not just the eleven that go out there.
“We proved that today with a couple of subs who came on and had an impact.”
