About the 1971-72 season
This match ended in a 2-1 win to Port Vale thanks to strikes from John Brodie and Brian Horton. The season ended in a mid-table finish for the Valiants but events on the pitch were overshadowed by events off them as there were a number of boardroom changes. Bobby Gough finished as top-scorer with ten goals as Vale finished the season in fifteenth place.
