8 January 2016

Speaking exclusively to Valiant PlayerHD, the Vale manager said the Tangerines will provide a tough test on what could be a difficult playing surface.

“As much as we want to try and get the ball down and play, we’ve got to play the opposition and play the pitch and the conditions,” he commented.

“I think there’s snow forecast over the weekend so we’ll see what pans out with regards to the weather but we’ve got two big games coming up. 

“We’ve got the rearranged game against Swindon on Tuesday but first and foremost we’ve got this game against Blackpool.

“We could have a good four or five days and that’s the plan, that’s the message to the players.”
