Port Vale claimed a 2-1 win over Crawley in Sky Bet League One on Tuesday night as both teams finished the game with 10 men.

Crawley took the lead in the 35th minute through a Billy Clarke penalty but Billy Knott levelled for Vale five minutes after the break, with the home side given a one-man advantage in the 67th minute when Dannie Bulman was sent off for his second bookable offence.

Vale took the lead with six minutes remaining thanks to Doug Loft's strike, but they too finished the match with a man down after Chris Robertson was sent off in the last minute.

Elsewhere, league leaders Wolves dropped points away from home as they were held to a goalless draw by struggling Stevenage while the games between Sheffield United and Brentford, and Coventry and Bradford, were also scoreless.

In League Two, a late Tom Soares header saw Bury claim a 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers which put them 10 points clear of the relegation zone.

Hallam Hope gave Bury the lead in the third minute before Rovers equalised though Kaid Mohamed in first-half stoppage time, with Soares nodding the winner 10 minutes before full-time.
