Adams Remains Upbeat

Adams Remains Upbeat

Vale boss Micky Adams is staying upbeat following his side`s surprising 1-0 home defeat to Morecambe on Saturday. The Valiants produced a disappointing display and subsequently lost pole position in League Two to Gillingham.

Despite the despondency that has since followed, Adams believes there are plenty of positives to take from the game. Speaking to the Official Site, Adams said: "It`s not all doom and gloom. Once again I thought our better players …, like last week, were all defenders.

Defensively we look sound, we are just lacking something going forward at the moment, and it`s not quite clicking into place.

I thought we lacked a little bit of imagination in our forward areas and there`s a few players not quite on their game at the moment.

We`ve got a lot to look forward to. I did say and I have been saying that the season will have lots of twists and turns.

"We`ve got a lot to look forward to but we`ve really got to get back on track as soon as we can now. I`m not sure we deserved to lose but I don`t think we did enough to win it either."

Adams will be seeking a swift response from his players as they make the long trip to Torquay United next weekend. The Gulls are currently in free fall following the absence of manager Martin Ling, who has been absent over the last few weeks owing to a debilitating illness. Having hoped to be featuring towards the top of League Two once again this season, Torquay are currently in 19th spot in the table.

The Vale boss may look to freshen things up for the game, with Louis Dodds, Rob Taylor and Ben Williamson all pushing for a recall after Vale`s potent attacking threat has somewhat subsided over recent weeks.
