Vale boss not ruling out play-off push
Micky Adams says he won’t be looking too far ahead just yet, but he certainly has not given up on the possibility of his side breaking into the play-offs come the end of the season.
He won’t be putting any pressure on his players of course, but with Vale just outside the elite bunch at the moment, he knows that anything is possible.
He says: “We will always approach it one game at a time. If you look at the fixtures we have got coming up, I think we have got chances in all of them.
“We are disappointed we are two games, or three games behind certain clubs, which will represent a bit of a workload in the last three months of the season.
“But it is nothing to complain about, I think we should embrace it and look forward to each and every one of the games and attack them as positively as we can.
“There are no distractions now, we are out of all the cup competitions and we can be nice and positive.
“There are a lot of points to play for. There are a lot of games that we can look forward to and we are in a nice position to attack the top six if that’s what we are going to do.
“We have got to play teams that are in and around us as well. There will be teams scrapping for their lives at the bottom of the table and taking points unexpectedly towards the end of the season.
“We just want to be in the frame the best we can and hang on the best we can and not get carried away with success or failure. Whatever comes we will just take it and move on to the next game.”
