Port Vale hadn't run away since August; that was until Saturday afternoon when Rob Page marked his first game as permanent boss with a win at Colchester United.

The 2-1 win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium was the perfect way for Page to make his mark as the fulltime Vale boss, which was of course confirmed in the lead up to this game.

Freddie Sears almost scored early to give the host the lead before Colchester 'keeper Sam Walker saved well to deny Ben Williamson.

Mark Marshall would have done that had his effort not hit the post.

We had 'keeper Chris Neal to thank fro saving well from Gavin Massey, and again later on!

Richard Duffy brought down Massey in the area for a penalty, Sears stepped up but Neal saved his spot kick.

Marshall (56) wasn't denied in the second half as he converted Adam Yates' cross to give us a one-nil lead.

Four-minutes later Colin Daniel (60), who had come off the bench just a minute earlier, converted after Marshall turned provider.

The frame of the goal denied Colchester when Gavin Massey went close to reducing the deficit before Sears (79) did late on but we saw through the two-one win.
