Match Thread: Port Vale v Leyton Orient

Recommended Posts

At this stage a 6 pointer, Vale with 3 wins on the trot and Orient 5 games unbeaten.  Winner will be in a promotion place. Justified in the Vale's case with our results against the early leaders.  Early days, game at a time etc., but certainly promising. So, a tough encounter awaits, no doubt well analysed.  Possibly of concern is the head injury to Smith, hopefully more will be known on Monday and there are no complications.  There are options if needed but a stable defence is preferred.  Rodney is suspended until the next  game, away at Sutton, but we have plenty waiting on the bench  if attacking  changes are required. I fancy a 2-0

3 wins on the bounce beating Swindon and Scunthorpe away lets hope the word spreads and we get a decent gate .

Orient are second and when they played there last away game v Bristol Rovers there seemed a fair few there let's hope they bring a few I'm.sure they will .

Team well I suppose it picks itself I'd like more variety from the bench though personally .

Kenny Jackett is renowned for being a very good manager this will be our biggest test  of the season  with encouragement I see a very good game from Vale and hopefully the three points before first time visit to Sutton United (probably go that game as only 43 minutes drive away as long as pay the toll ) 

Cannot wait

Our away form is great, but we need to perform the same at home and have teams thinking they've lost before they've kicked a ball. Id keep the same team, but would like to see at least a glimpse of Politic at some point. A home win would be a massive boost to our hopes of top 3.

We are quickly becoming a difficult team to play! Who are you going to mark? A number of players are potential goal scorers. I am sure DC will pick a team to win , again if we are all at 7 of 8 out of 10 we will win. Come on you whites !

Maybe announce a deal if your a season ticket holder you can get two adult in for 30 (same applies to away fans etc ).

Pack the park bring along anyone you can and hopefully they got a big encouraging voices .

I'd thinking of the game sat make a few changes freshen it up .

Has Rodney done his 3 yet or his sat his last one ?.

I'd unleash Amoo on them at some point he scored the winner v them 2 seasons ago at home I believe .

Maybe a start for one of centre halfs also believe Smith's got a nasty head wound so no point making it worse so probably Martin to come in only if Smith doesn't make it .

All exciting though and another whole weeks preparations. 

Let's hope we have worked on getting Worrall and Gibbons in on there respective halfs .

Got a feeling J Proctors going get a hat trick for us in a game soon .

I think Garrity will be scoring a home goal soon also because he gets in there he is fast becoming the main man really rate him he is terrific a positive I'm going get in there player, not just get in the 3 sublime finishes at Swindon and Scunthorpe were worthy of winning both games they did the  proofs in the pudding .

How can any Vale supporter not be looking forwards to the games .

If no longer attend go and give them a go and give your hard earned to a club on the up ,good for the area is that both local teams are on the up .

I can't see too many changes to the starting XI but I think DC said there was a friendly this week and that may help in terms of who makes the squad/bench (e.g. a strong showing by Politic/Amoo/Taylor in that game will surely push their case for being brought off the bench. It also gives them more minutes to keep them sharp).

It's good to have so much competition across the side.

This will be tough... they are decent with a good manager.... I think DC will change a couple of personnel for this one, we havent really hit our stride fully at home I dont think.

Hopefully saturday will change that.

I am looking forward to seeing DC pit his wits with Jackett

I expect a change for this despite our good run. 

Orient will be top 7 come end of season and this is a really tough game. We will definitely require more height at the back for this one so I would expect Martin to come into the team - if he's fit.

Should be an excellent match hopefully we can get a good crowd in, get VP bouncing with a win to attract more supporters to the following home games.

Yes, we could have done with Leon for this one. Orient's centre forward is Harry Smith - 6' 5" with six goals in seven games this season. Not convinced by Martin's aerial ability so far, so it will be interesting to see what changes DC makes, if any. Our best chance will be to stop him getting any chances and closing down any service to him, which usually comes from Theo Archibald their 6'1" right winger - one for Gibbo and Jones methinks. Their other forward is Aaron Drinan who's also 6'1" and so far, think I'm right in saying their front three have scored 12 in 8 games.

Going to be a tough old game - UTV!
