Adams Ponders Changes

Vale boss Micky Adams has admitted he may need to alter his system following the 0-0 draw at Barnet on Saturday. The Valiants were second best for much of the game, as they struggled to adapt to the Bees` extra man in midfield. The introduction of Sam Morsy during the second half gave Vale a little more impetus, although it left the Vale boss pondering his selection come the club`s next away trip. "At home we just play our own game, but maybe I got it wrong at Barnet.

"They were better than us on the day and we never got to grips with them or their system, so I'll have a look at how we set up in future."

Despite Vale`s excellent season, the times they have come unstuck have often been against sides that take advantage of the 4-2-4 system that Vale effectively play. Chesterfield, York City and Barnet in particular are sides that have enjoyed notable success by flooding the central midfield area and overrunning Vale. For much of the season, Vale`s attacking approach has proved too much for the opposition. While it may not be too much of a worry for the remainder of the campaign, against stiffer opposition, both physically and tactically, in the division above may call for a change of approach.

Meanwhile, tonight sees the AGM of the Port Vale Supporters` club, where it seeks to elect a new committee. The group have played a significant role over recent times, rallying the fan base following the slide into administration, raising significant money and, of course, overseeing the Sproson Statue project. The meeting will take place at Tommy Cheadle`s pub, Vale Park.
