Vale cruising to victory till last 5 minute madness. 2 points lost.
Vale in away Red shirts, white shorts and Navy socks.
0-1. Vale go 1 up. Jordan Holmes.
On 15 minutes a mix up with AFC Haye’s advancing ‘keeper and centre back allows the ball to roll back to Jordan Holmes who carefully right side foot lobs it over the ‘keeper who is stranded on the edge of the penalty area. The ball arcs over the keeper and into the open net. A shot from our right winger Jordan from between 25 and 30 yards. No assist. A very well taken goal of which the execution takes good technique.
Half time 0-1 to RPV.
0-2. 71 minutes. Jack Williamson. Assist from Seanan Mckillop. Seanan Mckillop does great work in a right-wing position where he takes the ball to the edge of the byeline where he is being marked and harried by the Hayes left back but he manages to put in a great low cross where lone striker Jack Williamson is running into the 6 yard area. The ball is travelling across the 6 yard area and Jack has to slide and stretch his left boot high to meet the ball while still in the action of sliding in. He makes contact with the crossedball and scores from 4 yards out. It is an excellent goal and one that is made slightly against the run of play in the second half.
The bit where we chuck 2 points away.
So up until this point we have the game in control and we have defended really well, centre backs Marcus Dowdeswell and James Curran are heading away balls, breaking down attacks with ease. Fullbacks Joe Bell and Charlie Marus have had a great game, tackling and passing down the channels all day.
