Port Vale 3-0 Doncaster

Port Vale 3-0 Doncaster

Byron Moore and Freddie Veseli scored their first senior goals as Vale cruised past Doncaster Rovers at Vale Park.

The Valiants got off to a good start with Mark Marshall set up by a great Tom Pope pass to open the scoring on five minutes.

As the heavens opened, Freddie Veseli took advantage of the conditions to score with a low drive from thirty yards which Rovers keeper Bywater should have saved.

The visitors’ defence was looking under some pressure but they were helped by some poor refereeing with the officials missing numerous fouls. However, the visitors rallied after the break but despite a period of possession, there was only one save of note for Neal to save.

Vale were looking comfortable with Michael O’Connor bossing the midfield and the pace of Williamson, Marshall and Moore causing the Doncaster backline all sorts of problems.

Dodds came on for Williamson and produced some nice touches before Moore gave Vale the icing on the cake with the third goal and his first for the club. The entire Vale side went to celebrate with the winger who had endured a torrid time since joining the Valiants.

The Vale even managed to keep their second successive cleansheet – for which credit was due to newcomer Inniss who looked solid at the back.

With two wins in a row, the Vale can now look forward to their next fixture with confidence.
