Port Vale extended their lead at the top of League Two to four points by easing to victory over bottom-of-the-table AFC Wimbledon.

Lee Hughes headed home his fourth goal in as many games from Ryan Burge's free-kick to give Vale the lead.

Toby Ajala fired the visitors' best chance narrowly wide before Ashley Vincent's deflected effort doubled Vale's advantage.

And Vincent drilled in the third from 12 yards to wrap up the win.
