John Askey: we’re not overloaded with goals but we need to perform at home

Port Vale manager John Askey says his shotshy team need to put on a performance at Vale Park on Saturday.

Vale’s home form has been terrible and Askey is desperate to correct that during Saturday’s home game with Mansfield Town.

We’re not overloaded with goals and if you do concede it’s always going to be tough… it’s just belief, we’ve got to get that belief in us…

Askey told the official Port Vale website: “I think for any team you want to perform at home. It’s important in front of your own supporters and it hasn’t been good enough at home and we’re looking to rectify that now.

“You look at the games that we’ve played here whilst I’ve been in charge and we’ve done OK. We probably need to keep the ball better and put teams under more pressure, that then enables the crowd to get behind us.

“We’re not overloaded with goals and if you do concede it’s always going to be tough… it’s just belief, we’ve got to get that belief in us. Once we do we’ll be fine as proved on Saturday. We played really good football and created loads of good chances, it’s about converting them now.”
