Micky Adams said his injury-hit side “acquitted ourselves well” during their 2-0 defeat to Brentford.
We’ve had a go. The selection was difficult, but I thought we acquitted ourselves well…
Promotion hopefuls Brentford’s quality won out in the end but the Vale manager felt his side did well under the circumstances.
Vale were forced to name a patch-up defence after missing Chris Robertson, Richard Duffy, Liam Chilvers and Carl Dickinson but ended up losing 2-0 to the Bees.
Adams commented: “We’ve had a go. The selection was difficult, but I thought we acquitted ourselves well.
“I think with the squad we had here and the injury crisis we have got it was always going to be difficult for us.”
