Adams says we are going for the three points

Whilst Micky Adams is aware of Torquay United’s capabilities, despite of their recent run of bad form, he says Vale win be going all out for three points at Plainmoor on Saturday.

The Vale gaffer said: “Torquay are on a losing streak, they have a new manager in tow, they haven’t scored for a while, so something has got to give.

“I watched them play at Aldershot on Tuesday night. They hit the post, had limited chances but if they are going to need a confidence boost then we can’t give it to them.

“We have to do the right things at the right times in the right areas and if we do that we will win the game, but we certainly don’t want to be giving them a lift.

“Alan Knill has been appointed now and he is a new man with fresh ideas from their perspective and they will all be trying to impress him I suppose.

“Alan is a knowledgeable man. He certainly knows this league and this level and I would rather they had appointed somebody after our game rather than before it if I am being brutally honest.

“But he doesn’t play the game and I don’t play the game, it is about my team and his team and as I said before, if we do the right things at the right times in the right areas, we are a difficult team to beat and we will get back to winning ways sooner rather than later - we hope it is sooner.

“They are a decent side and that same squad of players last season got to the play-offs so maybe their fans are as hysterical as some of our fans are at the minute because we have lost one game and they haven’t had quite the season that they had last year.

“They have still got the nucleus of the squad that got them to the play-offs last season and I think they are to be respected.

“We have done our due diligence on them and I watched them the other night and they are a formidable outfit if they get it going.

“There is enough will and determination in our squad to bounce back and we will have a look at certain things and we will look at the personnel for Saturday and pick a side to beat Torquay.

“We have got no thoughts about going down there and trying to nick a point, that’s not the way we do things, we will try and win the game.”
