It took only seven minutes for Vale to take the lead as Jennison Myrie-Williams was given time and space down the left side before dispatching a low effort past Michael Ingham into the far corner.

Midway through the first half Vale missed a crucial chance to double their lead as Myrie-Williams saw his tame penalty easily saved by Ingham down to his left.

That miss seemed to lift the home side and Scott Kerr almost restored parity with a rare goal but Chris Neal clawed his effort away from the top corner.

Three minutes after the restart the visitors finally managed to get a second as Lee Hughes turned home an inch-perfect cross from the left by Myrie-Williams.

York pushed on as they looked to get back into the game but the closest they came was when Chris Smith headed high over the bar in the closing stages.

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
