Bullish Adams isn’t bitter about cup exit

Manager Micky Adams told the Sentinel that he isn’t blaming the referee for Port Vale’s Capital One cup exit at the hands of local rivals Walsall.

We didn’t get too many decisions go our way at all, but we’re not out of the cup because of the referee, we’re out because we’ve not had the rub of the green…

The Valiants felt aggrieved that several penalty claims did not go their way but Adams told the newspaper that it would be unfair to blame the officials.

Adams commented:  “The easy thing to do is to start blaming refereeing decisions when you have just lost a cup tie.

 “That would sound a little sour and I don’t want to sound like a bitter man.
“Walsall are a good side and we knew that, but I thought we had done enough.

“There was nothing wrong with way we went about our business, we created enough chances and had Walsall on the back foot for long periods.

“But we’re out of the cup and we’ll lick our wounds and start again.

“I initially thought their first goal was offside and we’ll have to look at that.

“And I thought it was a penalty before they scored their second.

“We didn’t get too many decisions go our way at all, but we’re not out of the cup because of the referee, we’re out because we’ve not had the rub of the green.”
