Vale made it ten points out of twelve at home since Rob Page took over as interim manager, keeping a clean sheet for the first time since the season began as they saw off ten-man Leyton Orient.
The visitors had Darius Henderson sent off in the first half, but that can't be described as a turning point in the game as Vale had already been the better of the two sides in the opening half hour.
Vale's three goals all came in the second half, with Adam Yates lifting the ball into the roof of the net for the opener, and Ben Williamson doubled the advantage just three minutes later.
