Micky Adams knows Vale can expect a tough game at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon, but says Vale will be going there with attacking intentions.
Despite defensive frailties being exposed in several games recently, not forgetting the second half of the Plymouth game last weekend, he is confident Vale can give Brentford a game.
Uwe Rösler put together a useful squad and they have added to it this week.He said: “When we played them the first game of the season we knew how well they were going to do.
“They have got quality players but they are paying for quality players as well. They have assembled a decent squad and I don’t suppose it has come cheap.
“But whoever we play against, Mark Warburton will want them to extend their unbeaten run. We will go down there an attack them and see what we can do.
“We don’t want to go down there fearful of what could happen to us, we want to be nice and positive if we possibly can, mentally and physically get it right and I am sure we will give them a game, like we did with Leyton Orient earlier in the season when they were top of the league.
“We went down there and we were unfortunate not to come away with anything there, so it doesn’t hold any fears for us, but they are a good side, that’s for sure.
“In terms of fitness, Chris Lines is available to us. He has come through training and he is fine and raring to go.
“I left him out earlier in the season and he came back a better player for it, so hopefully if that happens to somebody on Saturday they will have to take it on the chin, prove me wrong and come back better.
“Rob Taylor unfortunately won’t be involved, Richard Duffy won’t be involved, Daniel Jones has still not recovered and he will be a number of weeks yet, so defensively we are up against it, but we will have a go.”
