Chris Neal was a respected figure in his time at Port Vale.
He played 123 games for the Valiants and, in his first season there, was an ever-present in the 2012-13 side – the last Vale team to win promotion.
On Saturday, Neal reminded his old club what they had been missing since leaving three years ago.
The 33-year-old saved Cristian Montano’s tight-angled drive early on, then denied Richie Bennett with his feet one-on-one in injury time with the Ammies trailing to a goal from the same striker.
As it happened, his teammates went on to grab an equalizer two minutes later and preserve a point, meaning that save proved pivotal.
