Players trusted to do the right things
AFC Wimbledon will be going flat out to make sure our match at the Cherry Red Records Stadium will go ahead as planned.
While the recent inclement weather may not be ideal for preparing for the match in front of the TV cameras, things have had to carry on as near to normal as possible.
The Vale boss had to cancel training over the weekend, which will have probably come as a huge relief to some of the players who were not exactly looking forward to another pre-season type session.
But Micky Adams believes his knows his squad trusts them to do the right thing when away from Vale Park.
He said: “The weather has been awful. We were going to train over the weekend but we had to cancel it. We are always fearful of players travelling distances in those conditions.
“We don’t want anybody having any sort of accident, so we took the decision to cancel all training and to send them a little message to look after themselves and to get out and do a bit of work themselves.
“It’s not ideal, but that’s where trust comes into it, I have got to trust the players that they look after themselves and hopefully they have.
“We regrouped again on Monday morning. We haven’t got the facilities, but we are like a number of clubs at this level that struggle for facilities when the weather turns.
“We went out and had a game on the snow like they used to when I was at school and it was great.”
