Port Vale 1-1 Bristol City
Lee Hughes grabbed a late equaliser for Port Vale to deny Bristol City their first win of the season.
The visitors had the better of the first half, but Sam Baldock hit the post and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas saw an effort well saved by keeper Chris Neal.
They finally opened the scoring when Scott Wagstaff's drive from 15-yards found the top corner.
But the experienced Hughes raced on to a poor back pass to round goalkeeper Elliott Parish and earn Vale a point.

Bristol City head coach Sean O'Driscoll told BBC Radio Bristol:
"We have to deal with the reality, not what we would all like to be sat here talking about - three points.
"If the game had ended on the 44th minute, we would have been high-fiving everybody and talking about a wonderful performance.
"The game doesn't last that long and we made one crucial error at the wrong time which they capitalised on.
"It was the most consistent performance from the team this season, I think we have been building towards it. We have had flashes of play were we have been comfortable with the ball."
