Port Vale manager John Askey reserved special praise for debutant Scott Burgess after the 3-2 Football League Trophy win over Macclesfield Town.
Burgess impressed and scored on his full debut for the club.
I thought we did well, especially Scott Burgess who got a great goal on his weaker foot but played well as well…
After the game, Askey commented: “I thought we did well, especially Scott Burgess who got a great goal on his weaker foot but played well as well. I think the system suited the players that we’ve got.
“The longer the game went on the better we got, you couldn’t ask anymore of them really tonight. They played some really good football and there was some great goals scored.
“Going a goal behind with players who havent played, we could’ve quite easily fallen apart. But they didn’t, they got stronger as the game went on, they’re passing improved and I thought overall we played really well.”
