"Football's the best game in the world when you're winning!" - Tom Conlon

13 March 2019

Tom Conlon delighted to get back to winning ways with Port Vale, claiming there's no better feeling than bringing home the three points.

Conlon played a pivotal role in Port Vale's convincing 3-0 win over struggling Yeovil Town on Tuesday night and scored an absolute cracker to top off a stellar performance.

Off the back of that huge result at home to Mansfield Town, Conlon was oozing confidence throughout last night's clash with Yeovil and he has admitted he is enjoying his football again.

With two wins in two, he insists they must take the same mentality and enthuisiasm into every game they play from now until the end of the season.

On his goal, he said: "I'd like to do it again, but at the moment I'm really happy with it. The moment Luke flicked it on, I just thought, 'I'm going to hit it', and it felt nice.

"When I saw it hit the back of the net, it was a great feeling. We were brilliant - from the first minute we were right in their face and we've just got to keep doing that - that's how we've been winning games."

Tuesday night's win proved John Askey's second victory as Port Vale manager and Conlon is enjoying himself working in the new system.

Port Vale have donned a 4-3-3 system over the past few games, giving the likes of Manny Oyeleke and Conlon freedom in the middle of the park to influence the game.

With all three goals coming from midfielders against Yeovil as well as from a couple of set-pieces, the Vale midfielder insists Vale will continue to threaten from corners and free-kicks.

He said: "I'm really enjoying it. Football's the best game in the world when you're winning! We've won our last two, we've put in good performances so it's our job to stay focused.

"Set-pieces are massive especially in this league, so to score two off them is a really good feeling because we do put a lot of good work into that.

"We'll just keep doing that. If we're getting joy from it that's exactly what we'll keep doing."
