Trio Talk To The Media
It was a busy morning Vale Park on Tuesday as interim manager Rob Page, new striker Dany N’Guessan and defender Adam Yates were all on press duty.
The trio were quizzed on a range of topics including last weekend’s game against Leyton Orient, other recent performances and new signings.
Here, we have taken some of the most interesting points from the press call and compressed them into bite-sized chunks.
Rob Page On Preparing For Colchester United
“We’ve had a great win on Saturday, it’s about getting the boys back in and preparing for the game on Saturday.
“I think if you are winning games of football and see an improvement in the performances and how we go about our work then we don't need to make drastic changes.
“Our performances have been a bit more defensive minded with the regards to how I have asked the team to play, which has been pleasing in some aspects.
“I’m confident with the form that the boys are in at the minute and the confidence they have got that we can give any team in the league a run for their money.
‘Really pleasing with Saturday’s performance and result, we’ve got to continue the momentum we’ve got now and take it in to Saturday’s game.
“After the 3-0 win, you’re always bright and bubbly coming back in on the Monday morning.”
Dany N’Guessan On Being Back Involved In Football
“I’m pleased to be here and it’s a good opportunity for me to play football again, I've been out of the game for a long time and i’m very pleased to be back.
“I came here and I trained for a day and the manager was pleased with what he saw so it was good for me.
“When you come and the team get the victory against a strong team in the league, i was very pleased.
“I played at this level before and this is a hard league. Now i’m just trying to get back to my level again and hopefully do well for Port Vale.
“We are looking forward to the game on Saturday. With the win we got on Saturday, we will have more confidence to go there and hopefully get a win again.
Adam Yates On Consistency
“We need a consistent run of results. I think in recent games we’ve played well and not probably got what we deserved.
“We need to build on the clean sheet, if we keep a clean sheet we know we’re guaranteed a point.
“I've scored five or six for Port Vale now but that clean sheet and the win was the most important thing.
“If we can put some results together, some confidence and some form; we are going to take ourselves away from the danger.
“We take it game by game. We will play a way that suits us away from home but play a certain way that suits us at home and hopefully we can turn those away performances into a few more points.”
