Tom Pope spot on as Port Vale earn late draw

Posted Sunday, January 14, 2018 by PA

Tom Pope's penalty five minutes from time earned Port Vale a 1-1 Sky Bet League Two draw with Yeovil.

Pope's spot-kick cancelled out a first half Francois Zoko strike from 20 yards as the points were shared at Vale Park.

Yeovil had by far the better of the first half and started the game strongly when a long throw was headed away by the Vale defence and Jake Gray's volley hit the side netting on three minutes.

The Glovers took the lead less than eight minutes later when a long ball up field from Artur Krysiak found Otis Khan and he picked out Zoko who drove a left-footed shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

The hosts brought on Wolves loanee Donovan Wilson at half time but it was fellow substitute David Worrall who won a penalty on 85 minutes when he was fouled in the area by Nathan Smith.

Pope stepped up and placed his shot in the top left corner to record his 14th goal of the season as the match finished even.
