Goalkeeper Scott Brown says an away win over Tranmere Rovers would mean a “good start to the season” for the club.
Vale have lost both their games away from home and Brown commented: “It’s a 46-game season, so when you win you can’t get too high and when you lose you can’t get too low. If we win on Saturday, it’s been a good start to the season.
It’s a new club for me and I wasn’t aware of the winless run away from home, but it’s a new group and we’ve only played two away games so far this season…
“It’s a new club for me and I wasn’t aware of the winless run away from home, but it’s a new group and we’ve only played two away games so far this season.
“Against Colchester they were just the better team, but at Carlisle we were right in the game, so it’s not a big thing and we’re determined for that record not to play on our minds.
“Credit to Carlisle, they came right out of the traps and put us under pressure straight away from kick-off, but we knew they couldn’t press like that for 90 minutes.
“We we’re confident we would get a spell in the game and we did, but unfortunately we couldn’t do enough during it to get a result. When you’re having those spells, you need to make the most of them and turn them into goals.”
“If we win on Saturday it won’t be anything to get excited about and if we lose it won’t be the end of the world, but we will go to Tranmere looking to take all three points.
“They’re a fantastic club with great history, and it’s a really good place to play football. The pitch will be good and they’ll be bouncing because they’re used to winning games, so we know we will have to quieten the fans early doors.
“If we play to our best, we know have a chance of getting something out of the game and that’s what we will be looking to do.”
