Youtube highlights. Wilson's goal is worth a watch.

I'm not a fan of Vale playing 3 at the back. Chesterfield seemed prepared for it and even from the highlights attacking the space behind the wing backs looked a common theme to their attacking plans, also a common out ball for the Spireites was the long ball played behind the wing backs.

The other side of the coin is Benning put a couple of absolute pearlers in for attacking players.  One hit the bar and the other could easily of gone in .

Yes he did but he could also do the same if he was playing left back. Remember Alf Ramsey's over lapping full backs, in that system the left (or right) sided midfield player would usually drop back and cover for the up-field full back.

Four at the back is just more of a stable base for me than three.
