Page: Vale fell short of standards

Manager Rob Page said that “we can’t accept performances like that” after his Vale side slipped to a comprehensive loss to Chesterfield.

Page commented:  “I think the level of performance we have shown of late, we fell short of that today, individually and collectively as a team and we can’t accept performances like that,” he said.

“They haven’t had to work too hard for their goals, it’s a free header eight yards out, he’s six-foot-four, there’s only one outcome when you get a header like that, a penalty and a set piece, a corner.

“We’ll address it and we’ll move on, we’ll work hard on Monday and we’ll put it right for next week.”
