Port Vale 1-1 Gillingham

Port Vale forward Louis Dodds helped his side fight back to earn a point against Gillingham at Vale Park.

The Gills had taken a 17th-minute lead when Vale goalkeeper Jak Alnwick was penalised for picking up the ball from Richard Duffy's back-pass.

Luke Norris touched the free-kick to Bradley Dack and he lashed a powerful shot into the roof of the net.

But Vale equalised just after the half hour when Dodds arrowed a low 18-yard shot past goalkeeper Stuart Nelson.

Vale defender Ryan Inniss struck the crossbar at the start of the second half, while Norris went close for the visitors but the points were shared.
