Great result today. The back five produced an absolute masterclass to restrict the most expensive attack in the league to very few clear-cut chances. Good to see Joyce and Conlon back, even though Tom

I Do agree with Rob . Phil Bowers is. a true vale fan . And I do think. He says what he see’s . I do enjoy Listening to Phil . On Radio sJoke . 

I don't see it that way at all. I think it's the right and honest thing to say they thought it was a bad challenge and to say what they thought they saw.  I then thought it was the right and hone

Good win by the Vale, kept plugging away. Scott Brown exemplary yet again. Not a fan of Devante Rodney playing as a lone striker through the middle, he looks much more effective playing wider on the left in a 4-3-3.

Would love to know what went through JA's mind viz the substitution and its timing, can't argue with the decision cause Theo was involved in the build up to the goal and generally did well when he came on.

Great result, back to basics at 433 which is, like it or not, our formation.

we were a little toothless upfront but, last 8 mins aside, they certainly were not bombarding us showing how well the defence played!

Big shout out to Fitzpatrick who is the lazy mans boo boy but showed why he is here today. Kept one of the highest paid players in the league quiet.

Tuesday will be a good game, we play better against team to attack us which you will assume Cambridge will.

Lazy mans boo boy...?!

I think he’s been poor (hence why he’s revived criticism).  However was excellent today. I still prefer Monty there due to the threat going forward.

We got a result through hard work, good defending and finally taking a chance. Montano lost his personal battle all afternoon and I was surprised he was still on. He deserves massive credit for keeping going and taking the chance. Worrall on springs at the back post for the knock down. Whitehead much better this week. Brown 10 out 10 in goal, and he obviously has supernatural powers when strikers have open goals.

Would be nice to see more goals, but I'll take that thank you. Salford's first defeat, 3 points, ending the mini-slide and another clean sheet. Can have a good evening and nice Sunday now!
agree. Take 3 points, our defence deserve it. Goalie, Clarke, Smith and Legge are surely the best 4 defenders in this Division. I'll enjoy my red wine now. If only we had an attack..............

I did agree with IronC with his post, but I actually meant to say what you have put above. He played superb today, best game hes had for us. He has been poor other games.

I think Rodney needs to be allowed to wander. His strength and pace is then really useful in mobile situations. But in a Pope like role he isn't as good. Maybe he will improve at that.

He was a tidy enough player and always put in a shift. But he wasn't creative and doesn't really offer much of a threat going forward. I looked at the 11 Cambridge had out today and wasn't overly impressed with it on paper. But clearly they are effective as a team, and their forward Mullin is currently having a purple patch.

I think Askeys thinking was keep it tight, get a draw at least or at best nick a goal and sit on the lead. In the end that’s exactly what happened.

Rodney was pretty ineffective today, but given how Monty was playing I expected him to go off and Rodney moved to the left. The angle for the goal made it look like Worrall was climbing on the full back for the nod back across goal.

Worrall leaped like a possessed salmon. Beautiful sight

Back to basics today much better. Looked solid bar the penalty and disagree with Birchall's commentary. We found ourselves in some great positions and had several good chances most of which fell to Whitehead which I thought he should have done better with. All of them looked like a pass to the keeper.

We still need to be better in the final 3rd but definite improvement.

Thought Theo had a big impact today occupying the centre halves much better than Rodney. I don't understand why Rodney kept dropping short for the ball? 

I'd like to see JA give Theo a run of games up front in the team and think we really miss Amoo. Wozza just not cutting it for me at the moment.
