What a game even at 0-0 it was a great game to watch City should have had at least 2/3 in the first half but Vale defended well, and the crowd were great 90 min of backing even got to the ref he totally lost it in the second half, but a well deserved win for City let's bag another 3points on Sat that should lift the gloom about relegation.

Deserved 3 points but after 70 mins I thought it just wasn't going to happen for us. Great team performance and plenty of positives to take into Saturday's game. One swallow doesn't make a summer but hopefully we can build on this and secure our league status in the next few games.

3 massive points. Puts 8 points between us and relegation. Still a long way to go but the monkey should now be off the teams back.
If we can follow this up with at least a draw on Saturday then we can hit the Stevenage game full of confidence and be looking up rather than down in March.

Another team trying to frustrate city at VP got wat they deserved. Well played city domination n patience paid off. I am so happy we punished their time wasting and horrible attempts for a point!

Well done city. Great team performance but especially liked Bennett in the first half and Jones in the second. Thought we saw a lot more of the Doyle of old too.

They should be ashamed of coming for a point after our recent run of results. So pleased we punished them.

An excellent team effort tht threatened more frustration but wow what a relesese when McHugh's header hit the net. I thought the fans deserved it as much as the players; positivity all round. Those clamouring for PP's head will no doubt be quiet for a few days.

It's mentioned above but Port Vale got what they deserved too. Pathetic tactics to frustrate, foul and time-waste...it was hilarious to see their players whinging about how slowly McLean left the pitch wen he was subbed.

Lots of encouraging performances but Reach is a quality player and really impressed. Doyle looked up for it from the word go and Jones really put himself about trying to make things happen.

The only negative was the utter DH in the Kop upper tier who seems to have made Kyle Bennett his new scapegoat...this "gent" really needs to do one and go "support" someone else. I am pretty sure that Bates' absence was significant but the list of players that he seems to hate is endless. You know who you are you ageing pr!ck but please will you FOAD. Funnily enough, he had left before we scored...he also got what he deserved.

Finally, I would just like to add; do City fans understand the irony of singing a line "we don't care about Huddersfield, We don't care about Leeds"....seriously, if you don't care then why are are you mentioning them?

I was also wondering if it is a little insensitive to sing "Reach will tear you apart"....Kyel was there you know!

Are you confusing Bennett with Reach? I thought Reach stole the show in the first half. Bennett clearly has talent and will prove to be a valuable player over the next few months. Tommo did proper job when he came on though.

We might have been on a bad run, but I don't think we have played like a side that had only won one of their last 20, and this was again in evidence tonight.

We might have lacked a cutting edge at times, but it was a reasonable performance, like so many in this spell; difference was we got the break tonight, which we haven't had previously. In a tight division this can often be the difference between winning and drawing a game.

Thought Hanson was immense, and won a number of what seemed lost causes.

Aussie Bantam 4:54am Wed 19 Feb 14

anyone noted that City would be joint bottom of the league over the last 10 games. Sounds ridiculous given the start of the campaign . Hopefully this win to "break the ice", will be a turning point for the rest of the year. Lots of new blood so I suppose it takes time to blend. So good to have Davies back on the paddock. looking forward to Maclean breaking the ice now, come on City. ra ra ra

No, in the first half I thought Bennett was excellent. He was cool on the ball and his movement off it was great to.
