Defender Nathan Smith conceded that the draw against Swindon Town on Saturday was “scrappy” but says Vale’s unbeaten run has built the team’s confidence.
Vale drew 0-0 on Saturday in a match which extends the side’s unbeaten run to four games.
To get three in our last four games and to be on an unbeaten run is definitely a high – you can tell in the dressing room that confidence is flying…
Smith told the official Port Vale website: “It was a scrappy game, but we fought hard and came away with a point so I think everyone is happy. When you play against the wind you took yourselves in, play defensive, and hope you go into the break without conceding.
“Then you can come out and be more attacking in the second half, but I don’t think we got going. Neither of the teams had any great chances, and from the off we all knew it was going to be a fight.
“When the defenders go out on a Saturday, their first thought is keeping a clean sheet and the goal scoring can be done by people in front. To get three in our last four games and to be on an unbeaten run is definitely a high – you can tell in the dressing room that confidence is flying.”
