Salford City’s unbeaten start to the league season was ended after conceding another late goal, away at Port Vale.
Interim Head Coach Paul Scholes took to the dugout and said he wasn’t displeased with The Ammies’ performance.
Indeed it was the visitors who had the best of the chances, none more so than Ian Henderson. The top scorer won a penalty towards the end of the first half but was thwarted by Scott Brown before putting the re-bound over the bar.
James Wilson had some good opportunities in a second half marred by a nasty injury to Darron Gibson, who we wish a full and speedy recovery for. Brandon Thomas-Asante also went close with a spectacular effort which dropped just over the crossbar, with Brown beaten for a rare opportunity.
However The Valiants seized upon a late opportunity to secure a first win against Salford in four meetings. A cross to the back post was met by David Worrall who cushioned a header for Cristian Montano to slam home inside the area with three minutes to go.
Scholes wasn’t too downbeat, and said that Tuesday’s game against Southend United will be a good chance to put it right.
