Gretna brought their three game losing streak to an end with a 1 – 1 draw at Vale but had to wait until the 67th minute to salvage a point. Gretna were again without key players due to injury and suspensions made hard work of it in front of the opposition goal missing a string of chances and found themselves 1 – 0 down at half time after Keith McLeod opened the scoring on 26 minutes for the home side. The second half was much the same until Vale lost a player after being shown a red card and shortly afterwards Iain Anderson scored the equalizer.
