About the match
Like the Arsenal and Everton games, the precursor to the performance was a fine away performance. In this case, Vale secured a fine 1-1 draw thanks to a strike by Andy Porter. The replay was notable for the poor weather, the Hamil End being open for home fans and a winner from veteran Bernie Slaven.
