Gaffer hints he may make changes again for Tuesday's game
Vale boss Micky Adams wiped the sweat from his brow at the final whistle
“I thought they got after us and there was no time on the ball for anybody and to get that first goal was a welcome relief.
“Going in at half time was probably a little bit harsh on Bradford if I am brutally honest. We have ground out the second half and it was a welcome three points.”
Chris Neal was the name on the lips of most Vale supporters at the end of the game and the manager praised his ‘keeper after the game.
“We have been saying all along he is a good goalkeeper. He showed his true character as he came out for crosses and he kept us in the game in the first two minutes with a great save.
“He was tremendous. He really was the rock that we played on, but I also thank the fans as well. They all went away disappointed last week when we let a lot of people down, but this win was for them.”
The Vale boss now has Tuesday night’s match against Dagenham & Redbridge on his mind and has to decide whether or not to make changes to the starting eleven.
Vale are not expecting a crowd to match the one who turned up for the Gillingham game last week, but feel they are now better prepared.
Micky continued: “I think we have probably lost a few people after the Gillingham performance, and rightly so, but we have learned our lessons.
“It’s not going to be an easy game on Tuesday night against Dagenham, because people will expect us to beat them. We have got to apply ourselves in the right manner and make sure we rest and recuperate.
“We are going to have to have a little think about things because we tinkered with the team for the first time in a while, so we will need to do that on Tuesday.”
