Port Vale coach Paul Bodin says “you cannot fault” captain Carl Dickinson as he is “one that you know you can rely on.”
Bodin told the Sentinel: “Carl Dickinson is a model professional in my opinion. Even if he is not having his best day, his attitude is a great example to all the other players.
He is outstanding every day on the training ground. You can’t fault him and he is certainly one that you know you can rely on…
“I can’t fault him, and then on a Saturday he has produced some fantastic performances as well.
“He has a great left foot and vision, and has energy in abundance, so he is perfect for the way we are trying to play now and bring in the full-backs.”
“It’s unfortunate for Ryan McGivern that Dicko is playing so well.
“He has to be patient, but he will be ready if he’s called up. I am sure he will do a good job for the team.
“But going back to Dicko, he is outstanding every day on the training ground. You can’t fault him and he is certainly one that you know you can rely on.”
