Port Vale manager hails “maximum effort” from players after late equaliser

Port Vale manager Neil Aspin has praised the workrate of his side after the home draw against Exeter City.

Vale equalised deep into injury time through sub Idris Kanu after hitting the woodwork through Ben Whitfield.

I am really pleased with the players’ attitude. They kept going all the game and, against a good side, gave them a really good game…

Afterwards Aspin told the media: “I am delighted with the point. When you score as late on as we did today then you have to be happy with a point. But if you look at the respective positions in the table, and playing against a good side, I thought that we more than matched them today.

“I am really pleased with the players’ attitude. They kept going all the game and, against a good side, gave them a really good game.

“The fact that we had a couple of players cramping up at the end shows how much work they put into the game. I think you have to do that because you are playing against a good side with good players and you have to give it maximum effort.

“That is what I have always said, if you can do that it keeps the fans happy.
