Michael Brown Reflects On Bolton

23 April 2017

Have a read of what Michael Brown has had to say ahead of the final two games of the season.

As Port Vale head into their final two games of the 2016/17 campaign, Michael Brown insists his side must become more clinical in front of goal if they are to pick up the required results. 

With a trip to Walsall up next, the manager believes there is still “fight” within the group.

He said: “I think there is still a chance we can stay up, but we have got to win on Tuesday. If we play like we do, with that endeavour and desire then we will certainly be taking the game to Walsall.

“I believe we can get a result and I want to see that so we can go into that last game when tensions are high and you never say never.”

Following David Wheater’s opener for Bolton on 66 minutes the referee was forced to suspend play due to a pitch invasion, something that Brown said impacted on both teams.

He said: “I think it did change the game, it allowed them to consolidate a little bit and for us it was a case of trying to get going again. 

“We huffed and puffed until the second goal and I always felt like we would get a chance, we were trying to move the opposition around but again we struggled to score, that is the reality of it.”

The Valiants will be looking for a vital three points at the Bescott Stadium on Tuesday night.
