Lines confident going into Carlisle game this weekend

Vale will be looking to pull themselves back together when they face Carlisle United on Saturday here at Vale Park, but they won’t have it easy against Graham Kavanagh’s troops.

They managed to earn themselves a point against one of the promotion favourites, Brentford, last weekend and will come to Vale Park full of confidence.

Vale will be hoping to get back to winning ways and won’t find it easy, but midfielder Chris Lines is expecting the team to be up for it and is confident they can end their poor run of form.

He said: “You wouldn’t have thought we were going to carry on playing like we have been because in the last four or five games we have been poor, but for the rest of the games this season we have been tremendous.

“If we can get back to that – hopefully we have had our bad spell – we will either stay where we are or move up a little bit in the table.

“Saturday’s game against Carlisle United is massively important for us. The fact that we haven’t had a great run is going to make us more motivated for the game.

“We are going from Wolves away to Carlisle at home, but if anything this game is more important.

“The Wolves game was a great to play against a great team and obviously we were disappointed not to go and win after where we were at half time, but the chances of us winning there were very slight.

“But playing against Carlisle at home, with respect you have got to be looking for three points when you are playing teams below you and we fancy ourselves to beat them.

“The last two or three home games have been ruined by the weather, but hopefully it will be decent on Saturday.

“The pitch is looking a bit better now so we have got to go into the game with confidence and try and snap out of this little bad month we have had.”
