Here’s how Port Vale could reach the Football League Trophy next round

Here’s how Port Vale could reach the Football League Trophy next round

It’s complex but we hope our guide gives an indication of what Vale need to do on Tuesday night. Let’s hope it’s not a draw as that’s when it gets complicated…

If Vale win…

  • Vale will qualify if they win unless Mansfield Town beat Derby County B by a bigger margin.

If Vale draw…

  • If Vale draw and Mansfield win Vale will not qualify.
  • If Vale draw and win the resulting penalty shootout, Vale will qualify unless Mansfield win their game in 90 minutes.
  • If Vale draw and lose the resulting penalty shootout, Vale will qualify if Mansfield also lose their penalty shootout.
  • If Port Vale draw by a score of 2-2 or higher and match Derby County’s goal tally (e.g. a 2-2 draw and 1-0 Derby win) then Vale will qualify.

If Vale lose…

  • They will not qualify for the next round.
