Last Time We Met Yeovil Town

11 March 2019

Port Vale face Yeovil Town this Tuesday evening as they look to distance themselves from the dreaded relegation zone, but can you remember what happened last time the two sides met?

Vale travelled to Huish Park in 17th place looking to end a run of two games without a win, whilst the hosts sat just one place behind Vale heading into the clash and would leapfrog the Valiants with a win.

Cristian Montano proved the hero on the day as his brace helped Port Vale on their way to a convincing 3-0 at Huish Park. Connell Rawlinson also scored his first ever league goal as he hammered home a corner-kick.

Vale dominated the proceedings from start to finish and hit the lead with just 13 minutes on the clock. A neat team move found Manny Oyeleke bearing down on goal, before he cut back to Monty, who made no mistake to direct past Stuart Nelson in the Yeovil net.

Just 20 minutes later, Rawlinson found the net to double the travelling Valiants' lead as he slammed home a header from Tom Conlon's whipped set-piece. His goal proved to be his first ever league goal following his move to Vale Park last summer.

Heading into the tunnel two goals to the good, the Valiants looked to continue the second-half in the same fashion as they ended the first, and to the travelling fans delight, Monty bagged his second merely minutes into the second period to put the game well and truly beyond the Glovers.

Luke Hannant, similarly to Vale's first goal of the day, was at the heart of the action again as he cut back to Monty on the edge of the box, who impressively slotted into the far corner.

Despite continuing to press, the fourth goal eluded the Vale as they eventually ran out 3-0 winners on the day. The win lifted Vale to 16th place, whilst Yeovil dropped one place to 19th.
