Sweet six-teen:

An outstanding first-half for Town set them firmly on their way to victory over 
relegation-doomed Port Vale.
 
The visiting side posing no kind of threat throughout the game, and leaving Malpas' men with almost open access to goal in front of a jubilant crowd of 7,361.
 
The first arriving courtesy of Lee Peacock, with a 15th-minute volley from a long ball that Vale's defence had no chance of stopping.
 
Just minutes later a second goal came from Craig Easton, who held temporary captaincy for the match in place of the suspended Hasney Aljofree.
 
A third goal came when Jack Smith fired home in the 33rd minute - making it a first for him this season.
 
An energetic McNamee finally managing to secure a well-deserved goal on the 45th minute - with Timlin coming forward to rub salt in the wound with a fifth just two minutes later.

A hard-working Comminges dominated the midfield throughout, offering brilliant support to help the reds achieve some fantastic goals.
 
Coming in to the second half with a 5-0 lead, a confident Town side slipped slightly on their defence - allowing a glimpse of hope for the visitors, who struggled to make any chances.
 
Late subsititutions saw the goal-hungry Cox being replaced by newcomer Ben Joyce, and Billy Paynter coming in to replace Peacock.

And with the Vale threat becoming even less apparent, Malpas made his final substition of Kaid Mohamed, who came on for the hard working Anthony McNamee.
 
And what a first team debut for Ben Joyce, whose 90th minute goal leaves fans expecting big things from the youngster next season.
 
An impressive - but not entirely unexpected - result against bottom of the league Vale moves Town up one place in the table.
 
But with dreams of a play-off spot remaining just that, it's time for Malpas and his boys to start looking to next season - and with Joyce impressing fans on his debut, it's expected to be exciting times.
