Match Thread: Port Vale v Newport County


Recommended Posts

Just been having a count up of tickets for sale in bycars for Mondays game ,no more than 500 left hope they get sold come matchday .

 No idea how many Newport bringing but fair play to those who come .

I'm not used to seeing Vale do well on last home games I think the last one what was memorable was a 7-2 win v Morecambe .

Seen so many no shows its unbelievable  

We better show Monday

I've just seen the pitch invasion on quest. God i hope they don't get 3rd, talk about premature

Good motivation for the other teams in the promotion race to get results that.

Shove that on the dressing room wall Monday telling the boys “these think they are up already” and use it.

In all terms though it’s two massive games, today has given us another chance and it’s important Monday we take that.

It will be very difficult to win at Exeter but we’ve had some huge results and performances away this season, Burton, FGR, Salford, Swindon so with our away form and performances against some good sides we can go there and do it.

First though we must focus on Monday and get that job done, if we don’t win autos is over realistically, if we lose we could lose our play off spot which would be crazy.

Looks like with Sutton taking a belting today a draw would now be enough for top 7.

Totally agree with you...and we need to win in a big way to boost gd cause that could make all the difference

No, goal difference isn't important now.. Vale need to win both remaining matches which will give us 81pts. Only Mansfield can reach 81 and they will need to make up 8 goals in 2 matches, pretty nigh impossible.

   If we get a win and a draw, that will give us 79 pts but Bristol Rvrs will get to 80 beating Scunthorpe.

Not very often you get 3 bites at the cherry, Vale. Monday is our 3rd & final bite after failing to take advantage of Bristol at home & then Walsall last week.

Take the chance Vale. I'm now comfortable in the knowledge that if we don't get automatic promotion it's probably not deserved over the 46 games. No team can bottle 3 x chances & deserve to go up automatically. 

Let's enjoy Monday, back the boys & go for 3 points to leave us with an exciting yet very difficult last day! Let's get the place buzzing, the boys need us.

watched the Orient v Northampton malt h from last Saturday, they were everything we were not at Walsall, fast, decisive straight from the off. Hope I am wrong but I cannot see Northampton slipping up.

If we win our last 2 we're up regardless of what Northampton do!...unless Mansfield win both theirs and manage to swing the GD in their favour by (probably) 7 goals?

Exactly my point before what that brizzle result as done has meant we now need 2 wins for automatic promotion. A win and a draw or even just a win may have done it with our goal difference depending on the Mansfield and Northampton results. Both have tricky fixtures to come. Anyway we need to concentrate on beating newport I have faith but a repeat of the previous 2 performances and I'm afraid we wont even get a point. Its really hard to see vale winning both these games following on from these performances.

They have to be put to bed. I was unfortunately one of the ones at Colchester,  a dreadful performance. 

2 weeks later in front of a baying Bradford crowd we gave an accomplished away performance,  yes we hung on at the end but overall we were excellent. 

What's gone has gone. We are certainly more than capable of winning both, likewise could lose both. That's league 2 for you. 

With the mentality the squad has shown I really hope and expect the last two games to be history come 3-00 Monday. 

It's in our hands and it's a 4 horse race not a one horse race as Bristol rovers appear to think. Anyone ruling Northampton out is foolish.

It's all down to us.

Andy Crosby has said judge us after 46 games 

It'll be nail-biting but hopefully the squad will be a bit fresher and be at it from the off 

I really didn't enjoy the Bristol game as I found the atmosphere very hostile. They think they've already achieved promotion.

I've seen his interview. A vile individual who thinks by using long words,he is some sort of intellect,educating the world on his managerial capabilities.

However the Bristol fans have clearly forgotten that he took them from 19th,to rock bottom. The team he has created are a mirror image of him...can play a bit but niggly and a terrible disciplinary record.

They think they are promoted already

Any football team scoring 2 in injury time in a game if they win there favourites for promotion would celebrate like that 

But Coutts was sent off for violent conduct and he conducted the match at Vale park and wasn’t Anderson substituted for a hamstring pull(?) so that helps us? But we have to bear Newport come what May anyway

Good news then mate I can’t really see them slipping up at home against Scunthorpe though but yeah at least the our players will have a clear mind 2 wins are needed full stop

If we fail to win on Monday, then I'll be seriously concerned with the mentality of the squad in pressured situations, which doesn't bode well for the playoffs. As a poster has said, this is our third chance to get it right.

9 day rest. Only a couple of injuries. Up against a team with nothing to play for. We should be perfectly prepared for everything about them. They're in dire form (won 1 in 8), and Telford has 1 goal in 11. 

A win could shift the trajectory of the club. A loss could confine us to another season of lower revenues and no guarantees of promotion, potentially losing the likes of Gibbons and Proctor on free transfers.

We can pat ourselves on the back and say 'next year!' like we did when Askey finished 8th, but football is unpredictable and we aren't assured anything next year. I can be satisfied with progress when we're in League 1, not League 2. Goal every year is to get out and never go back.

Loss on Monday is a failure. No question about it.
