Gary Roberts hit the winner as ten-man Chesterfield left Vale Park with three points in August in the reverse fixture.

Eoin Doyle had put the Spireites in to a ninth-minute lead before Mark Marshall levelled for Port Vale just before the break.

Chesterfield had to hold on at the death after skipper Ian Evatt picked up a second yellow and was subsequently dismissed.

Spireites duo Sam Morsy and Dan Jones lined up against their former club for the first time in a blue shirt that afternoon.
