Michael Brown Talks Bradford Game

24 February 2017

Michael Brown believes that despite limited options due to injuries, his side are more than capable of getting three points against Bradford this weekend.

Brown thinks that his side can take a lot from their game against Bristol Rovers last week, and look to get a result this weekend.

“Well at the end of the day, we have the enthusiasm from last week.

“Maybe with creativity we should have done better making more gilt-edged chances, but overall the boys did quite well.

“We changed it yet again and we certainly think there is enough in our team and the boys’ attitudes and endeavour, to get a result.”

Brown also mentioned that the weather has already played its part this week as Vale have had to abandon certain training session ahead of this weekend's fixture.

“We are looking at a lot of options, obviously, it is hasn't been the ideal situation we have been left with.

“We are working on some different things in training, but it has been very difficult because we had a full session planned today and Hurricane Doris came along and ruined everything.

“It has been very difficult to train and put anything across so we didn’t get to work on the defence today.

“I wanted them to see that we have a few things in mind and we wanted to put them into action today but we were unable to.”

The manager spoke about Bradford and former striker Alex Jones, who unfortunately won't be in the squad this weekend with an injury.

“You don’t want anyone to be injured and we wish him [Alex Jones] a speedy recovery.

“They are a good footballing team, maybe not as direct as they used to be but it will be a big test for us.”
