Match Thread: Port Vale v Barrow

Lacklustre first half, without looking in much trouble until we shot ourselves in the foot again. Barnstorming start to the second half, with the  changes, changed the game. Just the kind of reaction we needed to last week. And just the kind of result we need against a pretty decent team.

Great to see Benning looking more himself. UTV.

Good win that. Rubbish first half which was very lacklustre, changes were needed. DC made them and we completely dominated from then on. Hopefully DC will look to play with wingers more often at home. Question marks about the keeper again though. That’s my one area of concern with this side.

Game of two halves!

Very flat 1st half.

Much higher tempo and purpose 2nd half.

Really like Politic, he's a bit of a wildcard that can change a game. Would love him on a free next season but seems highly rated by Bolton.

Massive credit to the gaffer DC today. Whatever he said at half time did the trick and his subs were inspired and turned the game around for us!

We're 3rd!

Bolton see him as a definite first teamer in the future. Got no chance getting him permanently. But we can be grateful that he's with us for the rest of this season as he's a match winner.

Well played lads and nice one DC for changing formation and the subs. Obviously swung the game for us.
The game was a bit like game of thrones!!
So refreshing to have a manager confident and able to make the proper changes when needed.

Lovely Jubbly.

Big difference this year is a willingness to make changes to impact the game (albeit that some will always moan their sacks off if it doesn’t work)

And an ability to beat sides sitting in.

3rd in the league!

Bolton promotion needed! Might get him then! 😂

Today showed exactly why Clarke is always banging on about being able to play different formations comfortably. Barrow did a job on us in that first half. But we reacted to that and then they didn't have any more answers.

Today is a brilliant testament to the depth we’ve built up and adaptability. Great credit to DC and the squad.

Won’t always be the case it’ll work every time but we are piling up the kind of wins you just know we’d never have got a year ago.

Dennis Politic getting himself a cracking scoring ratio so far for us.
