Defender Gareth Owen has heaped praise on Port Vale supporters after an emotional home game against Burton Albion.
Owen told the Sentinel: “It was a tremendous atmosphere and just shows how great the Port Vale supporters are. In adversity, they were there to rally round.
“It wasn’t just that they were singing songs. Every time a substitution was made, every man, woman and child were on their feet applauding the players.
“Every player commented on it and the support really galvanised the players.
“The fans are doing everything to help and it is only fair that we do everything we can in every game.
“We want to do that for the supporters and the manager.”
