Gavin Tomlin scored a late penalty as Port Vale edged past a stubborn Notts County after a pulsating second half.

A Jennison Myrie-Williams penalty put Vale ahead after Andre Boucaud handled.

Notts levelled just before the break through Ronan Murray's 20-yard strike, and both sides had chances in an even and increasingly open second period,

Away keeper Bart Bialkowski twice made brilliant saves to deny Tomlin while a Callum McGregor shot skimmed the bar, before Tomlin struck from the spot.

Magpies defender Mustapha Dumbuya was the man who conceded the spot-kick for a foul on Tomlin.

But for the second time in the game Notts were furious about the penalty award and subsequent winner which ends their three-game unbeaten run under new manager Shaun Derry.
