Manager John Askey is confident that his Port Vale side will bounce back from the home defeat to Forest Green Rovers.
Vale’s four match unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday when they were defeated 2-0 at Vale Park. However, the performance on the pitch was overshadowed by highly controversial comments by club owner Norman Smurthwaite.
If you’re performing well and creating chances, then eventually the results will come…
For a brief period, attention will turn to matters on the pitch as the Valiants take on Northampton Town in their next League Two fixture and Askey is confident that his side will rise to the challenge.
Askey told the official Port Vale website: “For the majority of the game we did well. First-half we were the better team – second-half we went through a period where we got lulled into a false sense of security.
“We were playing really well second-half then they upped their game a bit and we stopped working.
“If you’re performing well and creating chances, then eventually the results will come and that was proved by our four-game unbeaten run.
“The performances on a whole have been good, but that’s short-term, we’ve got to keep doing that. It’s easy when you first come in, but the player’s have got to keep doing that long-term. The signs are good – they’ve come into training today, they’re still buoyant and they’re still willing to work.”

The Valiants will be keen to regain some form ahead of the next fixture at Vale Park – a match against near neighbours and rivals Crewe Alexandra – as they look to secure safety in League Two for next season at least. A welcome away win against Northampton Town will be the perfect preparation for the visit of their South Cheshire rivals.
