Smith says Vale may stick with 4-3-3

Coach Andy Smith says 4-3-3 may be the best formation for the side after an experiment with 4-4-2 on Tuesday night.

Smith told the Sentinel newspaper: We went 4-4-2 on Tuesday to take a look at a different solution, but we can see maybe we’re better with the 4-3-3,” Smith said.

“With the 4-4-2 we brought in another striker to see how he would link up and how other players can cope with that, with the space in midfield.

“But they [Derby County B] played with three in midfield and they caught us out on a few occasions in the game.
