Callum Evans forced Scott Brown into a save with a fierce shot after 13 minutes as the visitors started well.
Luke Hannant then fired wide six minutes later and went close with two more efforts as the home side enjoyed a good spell.
Tom Conlon was off target for Vale after he got on the end of Cristian Montano's 32nd-minute pass, before Fiacre Kelleher headed wide from Reece Cole's cross.
