After last week’s defeat away at Wimbledon, Port Vale will be looking ahead to the remaining fixtures of the 2016 calendar year to end the year on the high.
Vale still have Walsall and Chesterfield to visit Vale Park before the year is over, two games that they will be looking to win.
Remie Streete spoke exclusively to Valiant PlayerHD in the week as he looks ahead to the Walsall fixture: “They gave us a good going over here last season, when we lost 5-0.
“I know they have lost a few players and aren’t doing too well at the moment, but we’ll approach it as a tough game and a game that we think if we play well, we can get three points from.”
The defender also explains how important it is to make amends for last week’s defeat away at Wimbledon: “It iRemie Streete, Defender, Port Vale, League One s another home game that we feel that we can win. We have a good record at home and we will certainly be looking to bounce back with three points.
“It was a poor result, probably the poorest result of the season so far. We have addressed things on the training pitch and we have a few things that we are going to try out going forward, and hopefully we can get through it.”
The past year has been a year of change for Port Vale, and Streete explains how indifferent his year has been: “Last season I didn’t get the football that I wanted, and I felt that I deserved.
“This season, my aim was to get in the team and not miss a league game to make up for last season, so I am very happy that the manager has given me the opportunity to do so. I feel that I have repaid him, because individually and as a team we have put in some good performances.”
As the ex-Newcastle man looks ahead to 2017, he puts the team ahead of his own personal goals: “Ultimately, to get a few more clean sheets, and possibly a few at the other end as well. It’s just about winning games of football. You can have your own individual goals, but if the team is winning, then you don’t mind putting your goals aside, so it’s just about winning games of football.”
