Adam Crookes says the loss to Exeter was “frustrating” but the team “can put things right next week.”
Vale suffered a poor defeat to Exeter on Saturday and Crookes told the official Port Vale website: “We’ve been doing well recently and if you looked at the form table we were third coming into this game. As professionals we want to win every match, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
“We’re all disappointed, but we’ve just got to sit down and go through things to see where we can improve.
“Every game is a learning experience and you probably take more from losses, but we’ve done well recently. To lose today was frustrating, but hopefully we can put things right next week.
“It’s nice to have two games coming up in quick succession, but we need to get back to what we’ve been doing in the last few weeks and put this one behind us.”
