And two-goal Bishop believes it will be a long time before rejuvenated City provide more one-liners, saying: "This is the start of something big."
The win leaves City sitting pretty in the promotion race, but the score does not do them justice.
Joe Royle's men could have had double figures before Vale sub Martin Foyle reduced the arrears.
