Port Vale manager Rob Page hopes that Ajay Leitch-Smith’s brace in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Getafe will boost the striker’s confidence.
Page was delighted with the striker’s display as Vale produced an excellent performance to hold the ten-man La Liga side to a draw at Vale Park.
Leitch-Smith was withdrawn to a standing ovation and Page told Valiant PlayerHD the striker must take confidence from his haul.
“We know there are goals in him, it is about giving him the confidence to go and showcase that," he sai.d
“It’s not every day you score against a La Liga team like that, two goals and he could have had his hat trick so he has got to take confidence from that.
“We know that given the confidence that he will get from that now, we will see him grow as a player.”
