Vale host Yeovil Town in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon and the game will mark the fourth meeting between the two sides this season, but how did things play out last time?
Back in December, Neil Aspin’s men made the long journey to Huish Park in an Emirates FA Cup Second Round replay, and it was quite an entertaining evening.
Cristian Montano was sent off for a foul inside the box during first-half stoppage time, with the resulting penalty converted by Yeovil’s Otis Khan.
Following the restart, James Gibbons was then dismissed for a late challenge and the Valiants had to contend with a two-man deficit.
Despite that, Marcus Harness curled an effort into the top corner with 83 minutes on the clock to ensure the tie would go into extra-time.
Five minutes into that period, Khan doubled his own tally to pull the Glovers back in front, but Vale wouldn’t lie down and Antony Kay scored an incredible goal to level it up once more on 108 minutes.
But, despite battling bravely, Vale conceded what proved to be the decisive goal just one minute later as Francios Zoko sealed Yeovil’s passage into the next stage of the competition.
