Colchester United 1-2 Port Vale

Adam Yates
Full-back Yates has played over 180 matches for Port Vale since 2009

Strikes from Mark Marshall and Colin Daniel helped Port Vale secure their first away since August at Colchester.

After a goalless first half winger Marshall netted by meeting Adam Yates's cross before turning provider for substitute Daniel, who scored less than a minute after coming on.

Freddie Sears scored from two yards out for Colchester with 12 minutes to play to set up a nervy finale.

However, Vale held on to earn a second successive League One victory.
