Midfielder Sam Foley says it’s been “difficult” after key injuries in central midfield but he is hopeful that the side can “bounce back” against Peterborough United.
Vale lost midfield duo Anthony Grant and Paulo Tavares for the Bury defeat and Foley told the official website: “It’s difficult when players are coming in and out when the team is settled for three weeks like it had been and I thought we looked a very good side.
I think we need to bounce back with a positive result…
Foley is hoping that a run of form will allow Vale to continue their early season momentum and he added: “I think we need to bounce back with a positive result and we need to get back to basics like we have done this week in training and prepare for the game.
“They’ve got a young side and they have a lot of energy and look to play football and I think it might suit us there, because will be a lot of space on the pitch and were looking forward to it.
“We had a decent little run which put us up there and we’re still in a good position and it’s a massive positive to be there and if we go on a run it will hopefully propel us for the rest of the season.”
