Port Vale will take part in the last group stage game of the Checkatrade Trophy tonight as they player Doncaster Rovers at Keepmoat Stadium.The Valiants are hoping to make it two wins out of three against Rovers as the previous two games finished with a 1-0 win against Derby Under-21s and a 1-0 loss against Mansfield Town.
And if the side get their second win, it will mean a lot to the players and the club as it would ensure Vale’s ticket into the knockout round of the trophy.
Midfielder, Sam Kelly, thinks that although it will be a tough game against Doncaster, a continued run in the trophy will benefit the club.
He said: “It’s not out of our reach really if we get a good result on the Tuesday.
“It is a great way to get some money into the club and through the gates.”
Kelly has been working hard to try and work his way back into the main side permanently, after not being included for a lot of games.
“I’ve been working hard on the training pitch and away from the training pitch myself in the gym.
“I just want to play games; I still feel that I have got a lot to learn with my development, and I’m learning everyday with Bruno, Smith and Brown.
“Every time you are on the pitch, it is an opportunity to show what you can do and that’s all I do every time I go out there.”
