Newcomer Danny Pugh says that despite a “devastating” late equaliser from the home side, Vale can take the positives from their performance at Gillingham.
The veteran midfielder told the Sentinel: “Performance wise we are pleased, it is just absolutely devastating the way the game finished.
“We thought we had done more than enough to win the game and to concede a goal that late on and in that fashion is just very disappointing. You don’t like to concede goals, but in the fashion we have done it there…the lads are gutted.
“It feels like we have lost the game but I think we have to look at the performance as a whole and take the positives from that. We have to look at what we did well and look at what we can maybe brush up on, but I think you have to take the plusses more than the minuses from a game like that.”
