Port Vale 3-2 Albion

Port Vale 3-2 Albion

Youngsters Kemar Roofe and Bradley Garmston both found the net in yesterday's game against Port Vale, but the hosts won the game thanks to a bizarre and unfortunate Craig Dawson own goal five minutes from full time.

Albion broke the deadlock through Roofe after only five minutes of the game, but Vale rallied and took control of the game with two goals inside of nine minutes. The first from Ben Williamson on 18 before Tom Pope put Micky Adams' side ahead in the 27 minute.

Four minutes ahead of the half time break, Albion were back in it as Garmston found the net with a strike from outside the box.

The second half was fairly level and both teams looked to have settled for the draw in reality, and the benefits of another run out, but a miscued header from our England U21 looped the ball over Boaz Myhill and Vale found themselves having a very lucky break indeed.

Head coach Alan Irvine selected a mixed side for our penultimate friendly of the season build up, so the test posed by Vale would've been good for them, but the game did come too soon for Joleon Lescott, Sebastien Pocognoli, Gareth McAuley and James Morrison who all continue their rehab from injuries.
