Vale host Cambridge United at Vale Park in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon, but what happened the last time the two teams came up against each other?
You have to go back 15 years to find the last meeting between the two sides. The Valiants travelled south to face the U’s on the 13th of February 2002 in the Football League Second Division.
Buoyed by the fact that the reverse fixture saw Vale run out 5-0 victors, Brian Horton’s men went into the game in high spirits, particularly as the Valiants’ previous fixture saw them beat Stoke City.
That confidence paid dividends as Vale secured an important win away from home. Stephen McPhee scored the only goal of the afternoon on 37 minutes to inflict defeat on Cambridge who sat bottom of the division.
