According to Mark Marshall, Vale are going to face a tough test against Chesterfield who were promoted from League Two last year, but feels that if the team work hard there is no reason they can’t get something out of the match.
However, he wants to remind everyone that sometimes things don't go your way even if you give your all which is what he believes happened last Saturday.
Mark said: “There are days where results aren’t going to go for you, for example the game against Notts County. I don’t think anyone could have walked out of Vale Park too disgruntled, because if they were watching the game they could see the boys were giving it 100%.
“I think the Chesterfield match is going to be a tough game, because this league is on more of an even scale than last year. Especially because you have teams that have come up that have big budgets like Fleetwood and Chesterfield who aren’t going to be too far behind.
“There’s going to be no easy games, you can see that from the results so far, but we’re just going to work hard and try and get the result.”
The down to earth winger feels that everyone in the squad, including manager Micky Adams, want to advance in their career.
He explained: “I think the Gaffer wants to progress, no matter how many clubs he’s been at he’s always looking to improve.
“I’m sure all the boys here want to improve as well, for myself there wouldn’t be any point in playing if you didn’t want to win, that’s why I go out there and give my all.
“I want to judge myself after each performance, look yourself in the eyes and say I tried my best you can sleep well after that.”
