Vale boss Michael Brown walked away from last weekend’s performance against Gillingham happy despite the result.
Brown’s Vale team were the better team for the majority of the afternoon, but only walked away with one point after Josh Parker’s 95thminute equaliser.
The 40-year old spoke exclusively to Valiant PlayerHD after the game about the result: “You can plan and do everything before hand, it was a perfect away performance and then they threw everything at us and we made a mistake. It is a difficult one to take.”
Brown went to Priestfield looking for a hard fought performance from his team and that is exactly what his players produced: “I was looking for a gutsy away performance, a 1-0 grind out, and we got everything we wanted out of today apart from the result.
It was a great performance from the boys but unfortunately we just did not do enough at the end there.”
Despite the result, Brown travels to London tonight in high hopes for a result after his team’s recent form on the pitch: “We go there with lots of confidence.
But we have to go there and do the same again, and produce a similar away performance. If we can play like we did today, we won’t be far away."
Brown’s men travel to Millwall tonight in a bid to gain some ground on the teams above them.
Millwall are currently in the final play-off spot, but Vale will have their tails up after their recent away performances.
