Former Vale loanee Alex Jones says he prefers central role

Former Port Vale loanee Alex Jones has admitted he was frustrated at being played on the wing. 

Jones agreed a permanent move to Bradford City this month and told the Yorkshire Post that he prefers being played in a central role. He commented: “They [Bradford] create so many chances and put teams on the back foot and that was a big factor.

I was a bit frustrated towards the end at Vale playing out wide because I am a striker…

“At Port Vale, we played 4-3-3 so it’s slightly different but I prefer the system here because there’s so many bodies up front with you which makes it easier to link up.

“I was a bit frustrated towards the end at Vale playing out wide because I am a striker. It was nice to play down the middle and get used to that position again.

“At Vale, most of the goals I scored were kind of by myself but here they create a shedload of chances each game. Hopefully, I can start to put a few of them away. That was a big reason coming here, knowing how good the side is and how many opportunities they create. That is a great feeling to have as a striker.”
