Port Vale manager Neil Aspin has praised midfielder Antony Kay for his contribution during the away victory over Yeovil Town.
Kay was added to the starting eleven as a defensive midfielder and earned praise for his work in shielding the Vale back-line.
He was a voice for me out there and we’ve missed that of late…
Vale won 3-0 at Yeovil and Aspin told the official Port Vale website: “I must give some credit to Antony Kay because he’s got a great desire to keep playing, and I wanted to keep him on board to make sure he is enthusiastic, so I gave him the responsibility of organising set pieces.
“He’s taken that on board, but now he’s actually on the pitch, he was there to help orchestrate them. He was a voice for me out there and we’ve missed that of late.
“Our delivery from set plays was good and we looked a threat, which is something we have to be because we’ve got enough height and players who can head the ball.
“It was an area that we weren’t exploiting enough, so it’s good to see us being more efficient with them.”
The match was 36 year-old Kay’s sixth start of the season but he is now in contention for Vale’s next match which will be the controversial Checkatrade Trophy clash against Stoke U21.
