Vale crush Macc: Match Review

Port Vale cruised to a club-record fourth successive away win with a clinical display at Derby rivals Macclesfield as they emerged 3-0 victors.

Micky Adams' team looked muscular and methodical in defence and midfield and full of invention up front.

However it was Macclesfield who had the best two early chances, with Emile Sinclair seeing a 25-yard drive deflected wide in the 10th minute and Colin Daniel blasting a volley from the angle over the bar in the 18th minute.

Port Vale took the lead of the half-hour when man of the man Sean Rigg jinked in off the left flank before picking out striker Marc Richards for a simple close-range finish.

They might have made to two after the break when skipper Tommy Fraser broke past the cover but was thwarted by keeper goalkeeper Jose Veiga.

They did not have long to wait before sealing the match in the 71st minute, though, when Rigg ran onto a long ball deep from defence before hooking home a left-foot shot in off the far post.

Veiga stopped the haemorrhaging on 84 minutes with a brilliant save to deny mark Richards but he could do nothing a minute later when Justin Richards picked out his namesake 15 yards out for a simple finish past the stranded Macc keeper.
