Michael Brown Reflects On Oxford United

24 October 2016

Vale ensured that this past weekend, they would continue their impressive form at home of only one defeat in seven home games.

Vale Park has been an important factor in where Vale currently sit in the league, with 17 points coming at home.

Despite a disappointing display in the first half, the Valiants fought back and came from behind to earn a point.

Assistant Manager Michael Brown was happy with the performance in the second half and praised the change in style.

He said: “Well it was certainly a game of two halves, we were really disappointing first half and we changed it up and went with two up front second half.

“We talked about it in the week about adapting and playing different styles and we certainly showed that.

“When you do change and mix it up when something isn’t working that you have to use the other and fortunately we did well in second half and came back.”

When asked on what went wrong in the first half of the game, this is what Brown had to say after the final whistle:

“There wasn’t much in the game before the first goal and that opened the game up and then they calved us up and got a second goal which gave them a huge lift.

“We went flat and couldn’t reproduce any of the form we’ve shown and the passing we have done in the weeks before, but second half the boys dug in and I think the work ethic shone through.”
