Last Updated: 18/08/19 10:59am
Salford and Port Vale shared the spoils after a frantic end to the game at the Peninsula Stadium.
Vale thought they had won it in the 82nd minute when substitute Richie Bennett fired home, but Jake Beesley, who had also come off the bench minutes earlier, made it 1-1 in stoppage time to salvage a point for the home side.
Vale came close to taking the lead in the third minute when David Amoo's ball reached Cristian Montano, but he was denied by the feet of Salford goalkeeper Chris Neal.
The Ammies almost broke the deadlock on the quarter-hour mark when Richie Towell sent a dipping volley inches over the crossbar.
Vale had three opportunities to take the lead in the second half through Tom Pope, Montano and Tom Conlon.
They finally managed to find the back of the net when Bennett collected the ball from David Worrall and fired home his first Vale goal.
But Salford levelled matters nine minutes later when Beesley headed in Tom Walker's cross.
