Loft hails defensive duo

Captain and matchwinner Doug Loft hailed rookie central defenders Joe Davis and Jack Grimmer for a “coming of age” performance on Tuesday.

I think they both came of age a bit tonight. They were going in arguing at half-time which I think is a good sign because they were both passionate and wanted to win…

The young defenders were paired together for only the second time this season and responded with Vale’s first clean sheet since January 18th.

Loft commented:  “They played together at Brentford as well and I know we lost that game, but I thought they both played really well that day as well.

“I think they both came of age a bit tonight. They were going in arguing at half-time which I think is a good sign because they were both passionate and wanted to win. I think that’s what we need more of, they were both excellent.”

Loft also paid tribute to midfielder Anthony Griffith adding:  “He was brilliant. He works hard for the team and does a lot of things which I think go unnoticed.

“He won the ball back a lot of times to set us up to go and break on them, I thought he was excellent. “
