Myrie-Williams ready for Northampton

Vale forward Jennison Myrie-Williams is under no illusions just how tough Saturday's match against Northampton Town will be but insist big games are the reason why players play.

Myrie-Williams said: “It's going to be a very tough game, there are no illusions. It's the sort of game players play for, big games under pressure and everyone is looking forward to it.

“We played them earlier in the season and I thought they were a very good side, they have got a lot of big physical players but also some good technical players so I'm sure it will be a good game.

“We know we have got a superior goal difference but hopefully that won't come into play and we'll get the 3 points.”

He added: “We know that it is in our hands and we are going to go out there and go out to win the game.

“Everyone is looking forward to Saturday, we go into every game wanting to win it.”

In a season that started with administration it would be hard for many to comprehend that Vale would be in such a promising position come April. Myrie-Williams believes the coming together of players and fans can have a huge effect on Saturday in the final home match of the season.

The 24-year-old said: “We are a tight-knitted group, we've had our ups and downs this season, we are all in it together and we are really trying to get over the line now.

“It's a credit to the fans and to the area and the people and the club also.

“You have just got to look at the support that they bring to away games, I can't imagine another League Two side have brought that sort of crowd away from home.”

11 days have passed since Vale thumped Burton Albion 7-1 and Myrie-Williams is still recalling the special atmosphere created.

“Hopefully there will be another big crowd and I'm sure there will be.

“When you hearing them roaring behind you they ease you forward and push you on and it's a good feeling.

“Look at the Burton game, it was a great atmosphere, it has been like that for a long time this season,” said Myrie-Williams.
