Vale well prepared

Vale want to avoid a shock result

Mark Grew says the whole team will be well aware that there are always shock results to be found each year in the FA Cup and Vale must make sure they are not one of them on Monday night.

Vale will be well prepared for all eventualities, but at the end of the day it is all about the performance on the night in front of the BT Sports TV cameras.

He said: “We have got reports on their last game and we are fully focussed on this game. We know it is going to be difficult, they have got nothing to lose, whereas we have.

“We are going to be live on TV but we will do exactly what we would if we were facing Manchester United or Arsenal, you have got to be prepared.

“It is a potential banana skin so we have got to be prepared and we are definitely not taking this game lightly.

“The TV cameras will be there and they are there just in case there is a giant killing. How many times will Shortwood United be live on television? Not many I would have thought.

“It is the equivalent to their Wembley final and they want to make their mark on the FA Cup, but we are there to make sure that doesn’t happen, or try to.

“The gaffer says there are always one or two shocks and we hope it is not us. We all remember the Canvey Islands, the Chasetowns so we won’t be taking anything for granted in this competition because there are always one or two shocks.”
