Port Vale manager John Askey has paid tribute to the club’s away support as the side prepare to face Salford City.
Vale have sold out their away allocation of 1,400 places and are planning a “black and gold” wall to back the Valiants.
Myself and the players just want to do well for the club and the supporters, nothing would please us more to to send those 1,400 home happy…
Speaking ahead of the clash, Askey told the official Port Vale website: “It’s fantastic to see how many supporters have bought tickets; there will be a great atmosphere and we just want to give them something to cheer about. It’s not too far up the road and it will hopefully be an entertaining game for them.
“We saw when we played Notts County last year what a difference they can make. I am sure that will be the case. Myself and the players just want to do well for the club and the supporters, nothing would please us more to to send those 1,400 home happy.
“They are a tough team, very well organised and strong but I feel as though we have enough to at least match them.
“It is a far better stadium than the first time I went ten years ago. It’s developed massively. It was a complete dump the first time I ever went! But now they are looking to do big things.
“It will be a decent surface and a great atmosphere so we are looking forward to it.”
