Micky Adams said he was disappointed after the Valiants lost 2-0 at home to ten-man Preston, but paid tribute to the Vale’s opponents.
I am disappointed with what we have done, but sometimes you have to credit the opposition…
Adams told the media: “You have to give credit to Preston. Against 11 men it would have been difficult for us because they are a good side.
“They had won their last three away without conceding a goal so it was always going to be difficult for us.
“It was up to us to test them and see how good we were, but we failed that test.
“Don’t get me wrong, I am disappointed with what we have done, but sometimes you have to credit the opposition.”
