Live blog from Port Vales League Two home game against Leyton Orient. We have all the requirements, team messages, actions and reactions
The Vale are back in action – kicking off today at 1:00 p.m. – as they face a team from Leyton Orient looking for a third win in a row.
It was a different story for the Vale, who lost four league games in spin. The worst of these was Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to Stevenage.
John Askey has options with Luke Joyce and Leon Legge after suspension and Tom Pope after completing an isolation period after a family member tests positive for coronavirus.
I’m the Port Vale reporter for The Sentinel and StokeonTrentLive, Mike Baggaley, and I’m blogging LIVE from the game. So, follow me for all of the build, action, and reaction.
Oyeleke wins a corner – or at least I thought he did. The assistant registers for a goalkick.
The ball splashes across the area to Montano, but its low shot at the back post is blocked.
Worrall’s flank is blocked by Brophy right in the area, but the Vale man’s furious appeals to handball are denied.
Orient reveals they are still a threat when Dennis pounces on Legge’s header and plays in Johnson. But Smith would do really well to force the striker far and then block the cross-shot.
Smith competes with the giant bite for Conlon’s ball. Smith has his shirt over his head but the referee says no foul.
But this is a decent pressure, Vales best game yet.
Worrall’s outswinging corner is hit on the back post by Montano and played across the region. Rodney turns and shoots a shot where he thinks the target is, but that’s only far.
Worrall’s corner is hit by Legge right before Happe. But the captain had to stretch and the ball flies well.
Johnson becomes free in the area on the right, but his shot is blocked by Legge.
Oyeleke gets on the ball and tries to get between two defenders. It goes down, but there is no foul. No arguments as the ref waves continue playing.
Rodney wins a corner. Worrall tries to play it low up to the near post. This is blocked and Worrall’s ball from the rebound is claimed by the goalkeeper.
Danny Johnson leveled in two minutes, Vales attack was blunted by David Amoo’s injury, and Orient looked like the better team.
Wilkinson gave them the lead and while Vale caught up a bit in the closing stages of half time, the visitors were undoubtedly the better team.
Happe goes into the book to confront Oyeleke with a flawed challenge. He slips on the tukline after the midfielder stole the ball first. 45 min.
Montano picks up the ball on the far left and drives into the area between two defenders. But he may just have slipped when he shoots. The result is that the ball spins far on the near post.
Orient looks a lot better. Vale cannot get the ball down or build movement.
That should have been 3-1. Brophy’s cross from the left was deflected by Wilkinson and fell perfectly on Johnson. He turned and fired from 12 yards – but stranded far with Brown. 38 minutes
Vale hit back immediately but the ball won’t quite break for Rodney as it flashes over the area.
Oh my word. Dennis shot at Johnson eight yards from target, but his shot was blocked by Smith. Vale tried to clear, but the ball ricocheted off a defender, passed Brown and looked inside before Leon Legge was really good at sliding in and clearing the line. However, the ball broke to Wilkinson, who hit it from eight meters into the roof of the net.
So Worrall has switched to the right while Montano is playing to the left of the first three.
Rodney is expropriated by Wilkinson directly in the Middle East. Wilkinson looks up and tries to hit Brown from a long distance, but shoots far.
An excellent Crossfield pass from Worrall frees Amoo on the right. He gets to the area but his low hit is held up well by Vigouroux at his close post.
Louis Dennis sent a large cross to the front right and looked for Danny Johnson’s run, who skilfully passed Scott Brown into the near upper corner.
Dave Worrall sends a corner to the back post, where Leon Legge climbs the highest and sends a header down into the goal. It was hacked, but the assistant holds up his flag to indicate the ball has crossed the line. ,
Amoo runs to the defense and comes into the area on the right before his cross is directly behind Worrall.
Mitch Clark walks to the right and pulls the ball back where Conlon controls the near post. He spins and gets a shot off, but he hits the top of the bar and does a goalkick. Conlon hits the lawn in frustration.
This break from the Orient was an early warning for the valley. You are back in front when Amoo comes down to the right, but crosses his cross.
Vale on the forefoot, but Orient breaks through McAnuff and then Brophy in the lower left. The ball is played across the area to top scorer Johnson, but ricochets off him and scores a goal kick.
