John Askey – we have a good chance in the FA Cup

Port Vale manager John Askey says his side is confident ahead of the FA Cup first round game against Milton Keynes.

Askey told the official Port Vale website: “It gives us confidence and it gives us a breather away from the league, you can go into the game more relaxed. We’re not expected to win but we know that MK Dons have been struggling, they’ve just had a change of manager so we don’t really know what to expect from them, but we feel as if we’ve got a good chance.

“We need to get back-to-back wins and the FA Cup could provide us with that. But I think the FA Cup also creates a lot of interest and there is a lot of money to be made in the cup and that could help us.

“It would put the football club in a better position financially if we could get to the third round and as I say it creates a lot of interest and it keeps that feel good factor at the club as well.”
