Micky not used to naming the same side week after week

Vale boss Micky Adams is obviously delighted at the start his side has made so far, but is keen to ensure that their feet remain firmly on the ground.

Despite being on an unbeaten run of five games, Vale face another side in form on Tuesday night and the eleven selected, whether it be the same as the previous few games or not, must be well prepared mentally.

Micky said: “We are a confident side at the moment. When I say confident, I would rather us be confident than cocky, there’s a fine line.

“It’s about applying ourselves properly, particularly in the lead up to the games and then it is about taking that confidence into the games.

“I think when we do everything right and we play at a tempo we look as though we are a match for anybody at this level.

Although nobody can be certain the manager will select the same eleven tomorrow evening, they have already been unchanged for seven games, something the manager has never experienced before.

He said: “I have never had a spell like it in my professional career really. There doesn’t seem to be anybody carrying niggles either, so we are obviously getting the preparation right and certainly wins encourage an empty treatment room.

“They are enjoying their football and that’s the important thing, and so mentally they are not feeling the niggles as they would normally.

“They are a confident group and I suppose they don’t want to lose their place in the team, or their place in the eighteen.”

Vale will be expecting to take a large following with them to Highbury Stadium, but if you can’t make it to the game, there will be full match commentary on Valiant Player.
