Boss Speaks To Valiant Player Ahead Of Crewe Clash

  • The Valiants host Crewe Alexandra this weekend at Vale Park.
  • The game marks Rob Page's first local derby as a manager.
  • The 40-year-old says he is really looking forward to the experience.

Port Vale boss Rob Page is looking forward to his first derby day experience as a manager when his side hosts Crewe Alexandra this weekend.


The Valiants welcome Steve Davis’ side to Vale Park on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 3pm, knowing a win could take them into the play-off places.


But the Railwaymen have won three of their last five Sky Bet League one matches and Page knows his players are in for a tough battle.


Speaking exclusively to Valiant Player, the 40-year-old admitted he is excited for his first game in the dugout as manager against Vale’s local rivals.


“I’ve played in a few derbies myself and it is a great day, not just for you as a player, coach or manager but the supporters and everybody associated with the club,” he said.


“With it being my first managerial derby, I’m looking forward to it.”
