Port Vale 0-0 Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood climbed out of the League One relegation zone as they fought out a goalless draw at Port Vale.

A drab first half came to life late on when Fleetwood goalkeeper Chris Maxwell saved from Theo Robinson and Sam Foley.

Antoni Sarcevic hit the bar for Fleetwood early in the second half, and Vale keeper Jak Alnwick denied Robert Grant.

AJ Leitch-Smith was also thwarted by Maxwell, while Vale's Michael O'Connor curled a free-kick wide late on.
