Result: Bolton Wanderers squeeze past Port Vale

Bolton Wanderers edge out Port Vale 2-1 in a pre-season friendly.

Bolton Wanderers have continued their pre-season preparations with a 2-1 win against Port Vale.

Matthew Mills opened the scoring for the Championship side on seven minutes when he netted with a glancing header from Warren Feeney's corner.

Conor Wilkinson came close to extending the lead on 12 minutes but his effort, from a tight angle, was saved by Vale keeper Sam Johnson.

Frederic Veseli almost restored parity moments before the break, but his powerful effort flew just wide of the post.

Jermaine Beckford netted an effort from all of 30 yards with 15 minutes remaining, before Tom Pope reduced the deficit late on with a looping header.
