Boss expects a good finish to the season

Micky Adams has targeted a top half of the table finish and is still hungry for Vale wins, starting with the mage against Tranmere Rovers this weekend.

The Vale boss says Vale want to finish as high in the table as they possibly can and says the players all have plenty to play for, whether they are out of contract at the end of the season or not.

Speaking to the local press on Thursday afternoon he said: “The table at the bottom end there is very, very tight. One win doesn’t really help you and certainly draws don’t help you going into the last ten games.

“Teams at the bottom end have got to look to win games, rather than come with the phycology that they don’t want to get beat.

“So I would expect Tranmere to come and attack us and to try and get back to back wins. They got a great win against Notts County last Saturday and any type of win when you are in a position that they are in helps them enormously.

“It certainly won’t be decided one way or the other for them on Saturday if they win or they lose.

“They have got a sprinkling of good players, they have got a good goal scorer in Ryan Lowe, who has scored goals at all levels.

“I tried to get him here at the start of last season. He was one of the players who I spoke to in pre-season and we couldn’t quite get it over the line, but he has gone there and scored the goals, which I thought he would do.

“Tranmere have got a lot to play for, but I still maintain that we have as well. We can’t be complacent with our position, we are not safe yet and we still want to be looking at the top end of the table rather than the bottom end.

“That is the way we are approaching it, that we want to finish as high up the table as we possibly can.

“There is a lot to play for in terms of the fourteen players who are out of contract and even the ones who that are in contract have got to show that they want to be part of the club going forward, so there is a lot to play for.”
