- Midfielder looks ahead to Port Vale’s League One trip to Barnsley
- Garrity, who has featured in each of Vale’s seven League One matches, says Darrell Clarke’s side are full of confidence but are looking to extend good spells in games into 90+ minutes performances
Port Vale midfielder Ben Garrity says Darrell Clarke’s side will take care of their own performance as they head into their first League One match in ten days on Tuesday evening when they head to South Yorkshire to face Barnsley.
The Tykes are back in the third tier after three seasons in the Championship, though Garrity says the Vale are more than capable of securing a positive result if we hit the right level of performance.
“We look at every game as one we want to get points from,” he told the press on Monday. “Barnsley are a good side, they got relegated from the Championship only recently.
“We have watched them, they’re a good side and will be organised but we need to make sure that we turn up and take care of our own performance.
“Anyone can beat anyone in this league, so we have to make sure we turn up both individually and collectively.
“I think the week of training has benefitted us massively, to work on the training ground and work even harder.
“We perhaps haven’t performed consistently over 90 minutes; we are doing well in 15, 20, 30 minute spells but over 90 minutes we are not performing like we did last season, when we were very good.
“We won’t dwell on that, though, we are looking at the next game and making sure we take care of ourselves.
“The gaffer, coaching staff and the lads give each other confidence because we know we are capable of beating teams in this league and we are good enough to play in this league because we earned it last season.”
