Chris Porter and Jamie Murphy scored late goals as Sheffield United battled from a goal down to beat Port Vale.

Louis Dodds put Micky Adams's hosts ahead from close range after Adam Yates' low cross.

Nigel Clough's side struggled to find a breakthrough until John Brayford escaped down the right to tee up Murphy for the equaliser.

Porter scored a similar goal in the last minute after good work from Ryan Flynn to give the Blades three points.

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough on Port Vale win

"It was hard fought, I thought we had to hang in there for long periods of the game and keep going right to the end, but I think it's indicative of the spirit of the team that we can go away from home and win a game in the last 10 minutes.

"We got into good positions in the first half, but without the final pass or run. We had a lot of possession in the first half but couldn't break through.

"That's why you keep doing the right things, right to the end; the passing, the runs forward and it's two tap-ins in the end."
