Port Vale (home), won 3-1

What a contrast to the previous game. game. City showed a lot more aggression agains: Port Vale than they had done for some time, and this, combined with a lot of good football, brought us a well win and provided the deserved 3-1 supportersvith plenty of entertainment. It was all against the run of play when Port Vale took the lead five minutes before the interval, but in the injury time tacked on to the first half Johnny Kirkham got an equaliser when put through by Cec. Smyth. City caused a little anxiety early in the second half but they soon recaptured the form shown earlier in the game and two more goals by Alan Banks set the seal on our first win in 11 league games.

Shearing; Smyth, Blain; Kirk ham, Harvey, Balson; Corr, Banks, Bul lock, Mitten, Pleat.
