GOAL FLASH!

Colchester United 0-1 Port Vale

(19′ mins): Opening exchanges were frantic and untidy, almost suggesting a ‘man the lifeboats’ approach from both sides. A calm head was required – Devante Rodney provided it, sending a crisp, right-footed strike high beyond Shamal George to give Vale the lead after Tom Conlon had fashioned an opening.
