After missing out against Oldham Athletic due to suspension, David Worrall is glad to be back for another important game against Crewe.
Worrall made his excitement to take on rivals Crewe clear, expressing just how much the game means to all the players and fans who are travelling in force to Gresty Road.
Last season Vale secured their first away league win of the season at Gresty Road in a 1-0 win thanks to a Leon Legge goal, and Worrall is hopeful they will repeat their success tomorrow afternoon and make it three wins in a row against the Alex.
Despite the rivalry, Worrall stressed how the team must approach the game like any other fixture and focus on getting three points to help climb the table.
He said: “I’ve been holding off trying to get a yellow card for a while… but in the Bradford game I just thought it was a tackle I had to make, but I am happy it’s the Oldham game I missed and I didn’t miss the Crewe game.
“It’s going to be huge, you’ve got to look forward to these games or there’s no point being in football, they’re huge for the fans, for the players, especially what we did last year so it’s going to be huge for everybody.
“You’ve just got to play the game, it’s huge, it’s a derby, obviously we want to go in to win every game, we’ve just got to see it’s just another game that we have to win to stay in the pack.”
After grabbing his first goal of the season away at Bradford City last week, Worrall described just how much it would mean to him to get on the scoresheet again tomorrow.
When looking back over his start to the season, Worrall says he prides himself on making sure he gives 100% every game and even though more goals would be nice, he says that's not at the top of his priority list.
Having had the chance to rest ahead Crewe tomorrow afternoon after missing the Oldham game due to suspension, the midfielder says he wouldn't hold back on the celebrations if he was to put the ball in the back of the net for the Vale.
He said: “I’ve got a few people coming so if I did score I’d be going crazy, I’ll probably be in with the fans, my mates keep telling me I better jump in with them so I’ll try my best to make that happen.
“I just go out there and try my best, just run around as much as I can, I’ve always thought if I’m having a bad game one thing I can do is work as hard as I can until I physically can’t do it anymore.
“It’s going to be a lot of hard work, they’re very good on the ball so they might have more of the ball than us and the way the gaffer will want us to play it’ll be pressing, so it’ll suit me and I’m happy I’m fresh for it and I can do my job for the team.”
