Port Vale manager Micky Adams said that his side’s Boxing Day win at Rotherham “will carry them a long way” but “in the end its only three points.”
We have just got to concentrate on ourselves and prepare for games and the effort and enthusiasm they have shown today will carry them a long way…
Adams told the media: “We were disappointed that the [Wimbledon home] game was called off at the weekend,” Adams said. “And I’ve had them round the track over Christmas to prepare for today and we do it because we are professional and it has paid dividends today and that’s why we do it.
“As a result we’ve come away with three points. Coming into this stadium inspired me because it’s a magnificent new stadium, a full house and against a team that were flying high – and I still maintain Rotherham will be there or there abouts come the end of the season – so we needed some big performances and we got them.
“But in the end its only three points. We are half way through the season and we have 43 points. If we replicate that through the rest of the season we will achieve all our goals and ambitions.
“Our results so far speak for themselves. We are up there to be shot at. We have just got to concentrate on ourselves and prepare for games and the effort and enthusiasm they have shown today will carry them a long way.”
