Match Reports

Report: Port Vale 2-0 Stevenage

26 February 2022

A disappointing afternoon in Burslem as two first-half goals for Port Vale make the difference…

Stevenage looked to get back to winning ways in the league against a Port Vale side unbeaten in seven games. Paul Tisdale named four changes from defeat last weekend as Luther James-Wildin, Luke Prosser, Elliott List and Zain Westbrooke returned to the starting eleven.

Boro lined up with a back three of Scott Cuthbert, Luke Prosser and Terence Vancooten with Luke O’Neill and Luther James-Wildin as the full-backs. In front of the defence was a midfield duo of Zain Westbrooke and Ed Upson behind a front three of Jake Taylor, Luke Norris and Elliott List.

The Valiants were immediately on the front foot and broke the deadlock just six minutes in. James Gibbons whipped in his free kick from the left hand side over to the back post as the ball was flicked on and found its way into the back of the net.

Just six minutes later, Port Vale doubled their lead. James Gibbons eased past Luke O’Neill before squaring it to Ryan Edmondson who fired low and hard past Christy Pym.

Over the next ten minutes, Stevenage began to find more of the ball but ultimately the Valiants remained strong and didn’t allow Tisdale’s men to create any threatening chances.

On the half hour mark, Vale came close to getting a third. Ben Garrity managed to leap above everyone else to nod on a corner, but Christy Pym did well to get two safe hands on the ball. This turned out to be the final real chance of the half as Boro went into the break two goals down.

At half-time Paul Tisdale introduced two substitutions as Charlie Carter and Brad Barry replaced Scott Cuthbert and Luke O’Neill respectively. The Boro backline changed back to a traditional back four with Barry slotting in at right back.

Charlie Carter almost impacted the game immediately as he picked up the ball on the edge of the box, but his effort flew just high of the crossbar. Soon after Boro were on the front foot once again but despite a promising move in and around the Vale area, no shot was able to come from it as the danger was cleared.

With just over twenty minutes to go, Arthur Read was brought on for Elliott List who is yet to play a full ninety minutes since returning from injury. Read slotted into an attacking midfield position alongside Zain Westbrooke.

The Valiants almost got their third goal of the game as the ball was delivered into the box from the left-hand side with David Amoo on the end of it, heading inches wide of the post.

Stevenage attempted to halve the deficit with just under ten to go as Zain Westbrooke laid the ball off to Jake Taylor whose effort was blocked. Boro then earned a free kick on the edge of the area, but the cross was headed out and eventually cleared.

Stevenage certainly looked the brighter side in the second half but ultimately Port Vale’s two first-half goals made the difference. The referee soon blew for full-time as Boro walked away from Vale Park disappointed. Now onto next weekend as Tisdale’s men take the short trip to East London to face Leyton Orient.
