Match Thread: Port Vale v Barrow

Has to find a way to get Politic in the side, looks to have game changing potential.

Would also like to see us try 4 at the back more often to have a go at sides.

But 3rd after 12 games is dreamland stuff really when you consider the turnover in players we had.

Glad to see DC saw the same first half as us and made the required changes. Worrall is far better further up the pitch and it was good to see Wilson get better and better as the game went on as he's usually been hooked after an hour. A shout out for Pett as well an excellent game but better second half as he had some forward passes to make.

Excellent character shown after a very mediocre first half.

Tuesdays fixtures are brilliant for us. Lots of the top teams play each other.

Come on Vale make your mark by beating Mansfield.

Very content tonight. Slightly concerned about Proctor as that niggle might be more serious. Hopefully precautionary .

It wasn’t great really in terms of entertainment. I thought we were poor in the first half and the overall quality wasn’t consistent. However the flashes of good stuff were much too good for Barrow and we were always going to win after the equaliser. 
 

Not wholly convinced with a back three with Smith in the centre generally but it was enough today Dan Jones was very good. 
 

I also don’t think Tom Pett as a centre mid works much either. Little he did was that effective.

I don't mind Pett at all but I think a midfield of Walker, Garrity and Conlon is the way forward.

Pett has been excellent this season. He’s worked every season he’s played as a CM in this league so no idea where your going with that one. 

Totally agree… conducts the midfield

What pleases me is a few players have yet to find the X factor yet. 

I don't mean that in a critical way. Pett is okay I think there's way more to come. Controversial this bit now ? I think Conlon is way off the Conlon of last season, miles off. 

So add to that Walker who hasn't got started properly yet to be 3rd is excellent.

Special mention to Garrity again his energy Is unbelievable. And nice to see Wilson really really run his conkers off today at both ends of the pitch .

1st half we looked a little passive and played in front of Barrow too slowly but a fabulous 2nd half performance.Great tactical change at half-time by DC to change the game. Bennning and Politic were excellent. Shows we can play different ways to beat an opposition and not afraid to change it when needed. 

Can we please stop questing James Wilson's fitness. His workrate today was absolutely epic.

The keeper has to improve - he is the weak link at the moment..

Great 3 points lets hope we can go on another run.

Woz, Wilson, Garrity, Conlon, Pett and Jones were all excellent today. The subs did well when they came on, obviously Politic and Benning scoring good goals to bag us the points. 

Woz would have got my vote for motm but Wilson played very well too so I wouldn't argue about that award.

UTV!

Poor halves will happen in this league especially, no matter who you are. It's all about how you react to that when given the opportunity and we came out with a new formation, a change of personal and looked a different (and much better) side. You can't ask for much more than that. I would like us to go 4-3-3 more often at Vale Park though. We have the players to really hurt teams - Why not use them from the start?
