Tom Elliott secures a point for Salford at Port Vale

Tom Elliott scored his first league goal for Salford City as they held Port Vale to a 1-1 draw at Vale Park.

Salford defender Cameron Burgess had given Vale a 55th-minute lead when he turned the ball into his own net, but substitute Elliott equalised 21 minutes later.

Vale dominated the early proceedings and nearly went in front when Richie Bennett diverted the ball towards goal, but Salford goalkeeper Kyle Letheren somehow kept it out.

Vale went close again minutes into the second-half when David Amoo stormed his way through the visitors’ defence, only to launch his effort straight at the Salford stopper.

They broke the deadlock when Mitch Clark, signed on loan from Leicester City, burst into the box and sent the ball in, only for Australian defender Burgess to put it past Letheren.

However, Salford clinched a point when Elliott, who joined from Millwall in the January transfer window, headed in in fellow substitute Richie Towell’s cross 15 minutes from time.
