Too many who had poor performances – Port Vale manager’s verdict on Scunthorpe loss

Port Vale manager John Askey says his team “didn’t make enough of it when we had the ball” as the Valiants lost 2-1 to Scunthorpe United on Saturday.

The Valiants took the lead through prolific midfielder Jake Taylor but the home side came from behind to seal all three points. To compound Vale’s woes, key forward David Worrall was sent-off after the whistle for violent conduct. The loss ended Vale’s recent fine run of form.

I thought they were vulnerable at the back and we didn’t make enough of it when we had the ball. But there were too many who had poor performances…

Speaking to the media after the match Askey commented: “When we scored I thought we were going to start getting hold of the game, but it was a poor goal to give away in midfield, then we didn’t track our runners. So, it was very avoidable and it allowed them back into the game.

“Then in the second half you just look to change it and then they scored. It became a really open game.

“I thought they were vulnerable at the back and we didn’t make enough of it when we had the ball. But there were too many who had poor performances.”
