Individual Errors Costing Vale Says Chris Birchall

reckons individual errors have cost Port Vale in recent weeks, including against Leyton Orient on Saturday. Chris BirchallMidfielder 


Birchall put the Valiants 1-0 up at Brisbane Road and the visitors had chances to put the game beyond Orient but failed to do so and, after Chris Neal was sent off for conceding a penalty, the O’s came back to claim a 3-1 victory.


Speaking to the assembled press after the match, Birchall said individual errors were at fault for the loss to the London outfit..


“It’s really individual errors that are killing us again and I think the lads are getting frustrated because its something that should be eradicated from us and we keep doing it week in, week out,” he said.


“We give ourselves a chance, we went 1-0 up and stupid errors are letting teams back into the game when they don’t even look like they are going to score. They came out in the second half and created some chances but up until then I thought we were dominating the game.


“In the half-time talk, the least we wanted was a point, we thought we could go on and win the game and now we’re coming back with a 3-1 defeat. It’s bizarre, but that’s what happens.”
