Midfielder says competition for places good for the club

The weather has recently disrupted training, not only here at Port Vale, but throughout the leagues and it is something players must come to terms with.

Vale midfielder Sam Morsy accepts that Vale are no different than anybody else and he knows he and his team mates have to do all they can to keep themselves in top shape.

He said: “It’s never easy. You just have to get the basic things done, but it’s the same for everybody, you’ve just got to make the most of things and try to get a good training session in when you can.”

With boss Micky Adams adding four new faces to the squad since the turn of the year, competition for places is now getting more and more competitive as Vale look to keep hold of top spot.

Despite that, Morsy is relishing the challenge and feels competition for places can only benefit Port Vale Football Club.

But he warns against complacency and acknowledges there is a long way to go before the club have achieves anything at all this season.

“We have made some great signings. All of them have good experience and all of them have played at good levels so it can only be good for the squad and good for the club in general.

“It feels great to be in the position we are in, but we haven’t done anything yet. There are a lot of games to go, but we have put ourselves in a nice position and every game is a big game.

“I think we have learned a lot from when we were in a similar position a couple of years ago. It is all a learning curve and a lot of the times, when you are not successful you learn the most.

“Last season’s campaign didn’t go as planned, with the points reduction and all that, but we have learned from that and we are all striving to get this club up into League One.

“There is a lot of competition for places in the squad, but that can only be good for the team, because everybody knows to keep the shirt they have got to be at the top of their game.

“There is no room for complacency in any area of the pitch now, so everyone has got to perform and if they don’t I am sure there will be changes.”
