Port Vale 3 Oldham Athletic 2

Last updated : 23 January 2002 By The Chairman
After some good build up play, Athletic left the field at half time two goals down against Port Vale. McClare and Brooker did the damage with a double hit.

The second half was a different story with the Latics soon pulling one back through Appleby. The goal was a 25 yard stunner into the top corner and then Corazzin hit the equaliser from close in to set up a grand finale.

Vale had the last laugh though when McPhee fired home the
winner from 12 yards in the 81st. minute
