Adams slams Vale defending

Manager Micky Adams says his side’s defending was not good enough after the Valiants slipped to a 3-2 home defeat against Swindon on Saturday.

Forget  the conditions, we should do better, looking at the goals we conceded we could  have done better for all three…

Talking after the match, Adams said: “It  is probably a little bit too simplistic to say that with the wind we scored two  goals and with the wind they scored three.

“Forget  the conditions, we should do better, looking at the goals we conceded we could  have done better for all three.

“They  have not defended well enough. The first goal, if you are marking Nile Ranger  you should know where he is on the pitch.

“If  the ball goes over your head and he is behind you, you’ve got yourself in the  wrong position as a defender, so we are disappointed with that and we are on the  back foot straight away.

“We  are never going to win games if we keep conceding three, but I said to the boys  afterwards that I will go away, have a little look at the DVD and if we have to  make changes on Tuesday then that is what we are going to do, but we have to  find a solution to it somehow.

“The  left-back scores the third goal, so if I am a right winger playing against a  left-back who scores then I am going to be disappointed.

“To  put that right you make changes and give other people an opportunity.

“We  have got other people there that have probably sat on the bench or have not been  a part of it who have been struggling with their own games and the little break  has given them a little taste for it again.

“We  will have to pick a side to come out against Colchester, but certainly we can’t  have any shrinking violets, we have had enough of them today.”
