If we wanted to win all our games in pre-season then I would choose to play against bad teams, but I want to play against good teams, Forest, Wolves, Birmingham, Man Utd and Sheffield Wednesday, and in these games we see our faults and how we can improve…
– Bruno Ribeiro
Vale will be expected to name a similar line-up to the match against Nottingham Forest. Vale fans will be keen to see more of new signings such as Anthony Defreitas (above), Quentin Pereira and the newest addition Sebastien Amoros.
For Wolves, the main issue is whether the manager will still be present following a high profile takeover. Some sources think not…
Current Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is still expected to leave the club ahead of their friendly against Port Vale on Saturday.
