Crewe 1-2 Port Vale: Derby Day Delight For Valients

Jennison Myrie-Williams’ late strike handed Port Vale derby day delight as they beat bitter rivals Crewe 2-1, whilst Alex extended their winless run to seven.

Winger Myrie-Williams was left unmarked and nipped in to stab home at the back post after a cross had drifted right along the Alex six-yard box.

And that sent a travelling army of over 2,000 Vale fans home happy after they had witnessed their side fall behind to George Evans’ stunning strike.

The Manchester City loanee had handed Crewe the lead on 34-minutes with a superb volley, dipping the ball over Vale ‘keeper Chris Neal from 25-yards.

That lead was no more than Alex deserved as Evans and Byron Moore had already come close.

But it seemed to spark Micky Adams’ side into life, and on 43-minutes Rob Taylor equalized for the visitors, squirming the ball under debutant Neil Etheridge in the Alex goal.

And after the home side had had the best of the second half chances, Myrie-Williams struck to give Vale the three points.
