Roberts earns Vale win

Gary Roberts fired his first Port Vale goal to keep his team among the early pacesetters and inflict Aldershot's first league defeat of the season in a 1-0 win.The home side made a strong and confident start they were rewarded with the winning goal in the 10th minute.Roberts fired a 20-yard shot from Tommy Fraser's pass and the ball took a deflection to leave Shots keeper Jamie Young helpless.Aldershot recovered from their shaky opening as Manny Panther headed narrowly wide from close range and Anthony Straker forced a smart stop from Stuart Tomlinson.The visitors were the better side in the second half and Straker squandered a great chance to equalise when he headed horribly wide from six yards following Marvin Morgan's pinpoint cross in the 56th minute.But Vale stood strong and substitute Louis Dodds was denied a second by a brilliant last minute save from Young.
