LAST VISIT THERE:

Our last visit to Ashton Gate will probably be best remembered for the horrific looking injury suffered by goalkeeper Mark Goodlad in the fourth minute of the game.

There had been heavy rain before kick-off and most people expected the match to be called off, but the ground staff were called in to attempt to sweep the water from the playing surface

Unfortunately, Goodlad attempted a kick in his area but slipped and the severity of his injury was immediately apparent, so on came Joe Anyon for his League debut. 

minute, but former Vale favourite Steve Brooker levelled within a minute and Scott Murray netted the winner for the home side.thVale got their noses in front through Jeff Smith in the 68

Mark Goodlad (Joe Anyon, 4), George Abbey, Colin Miles (Mark McGregor, 17 (Richard Walker, 75)), George Pilkington, Clayton Fortune, Paul Harsley, Ross Gardner, Jeff Smith, Danny Whitaker, Robin Hulbert, Akpo Sodje
