Crawley Town 0-3 Port Vale

Port Vale powered their way to a first league win in four games with a routine victory over in-form Crawley.

Midfielder Louis Dodds put Vale ahead after 10 minutes, capitalising on a mix-up between Paul Jones and Joe Walsh to score from an acute angle.

Doug Loft grabbed the second with a fierce shot and Ben Williamson made sure of the points, running from the halfway line before beating the keeper.

Crawley offered little as their seven-game unbeaten run ended abruptly.
