    Highlights of the Sky Bet League One match between Port Vale and Peterborough United.

    Ephron Mason-Clark struck a quickfire second-half double to hand Darren Ferguson a winning start to his fourth spell as Peterborough manager with a 2-0 victory at Port Vale.

    Ferguson, who replaced Grant McCann earlier this month, engineered his team's first away success in five matches and denied Vale a fourth straight home win.

    The victory lifts Posh two places to seventh in League One, while Port Vale remain 11th.

    Mason-Clark fired narrowly wide when presented with the clearest opening of the first half.

    But the 23-year-old found his range after 56 minutes. Jonson Clarke-Harris headed Joe Ward's deep delivery back across goal for Mason-Clark to stoop and convert into an empty net.

    Clarke-Harris was fractionally off target with a header on the hour, but Mason-Clark bundled home from Ward's square ball soon after and only a full-length stop from Jack Stevens prevented Kwame Poku from adding a third for the visitors.
