Page Thrilled With Vale Response

Caretaker boss Robert Page was a delighted man after seeing his Vale side secure back to wins following the 1-0 victory at Tranmere Rovers.

A superb free kick from Chris Lines gave the Valiants a deserved win. After missing a host of first half chances, including a Tom Pope penalty, Lines` first goal for the club was well worth the wait. Stepping in for Adams who his recuperating from his hip operation, has given Page the taste of management after coming close over recent months for the vacant jobs at AFC Wimbledon and Sheffield United. Speaking to the Official Site Page commented: "We started ever so well, we had fifteen shots in the first half and they had two, so compliments to the lads, they started ever so well.

"They weathered it and it was one of them, the longer the game went on I was getting a bit concerned if they got a set-piece they could win it.

"Thankfully we got a great goal with Chris Lines` free kick so the plan sort of worked and I am really proud of the boys, I thought they were magnificent - every single one of them put a shift in."

The win lifts Vale to 11th spot ahead of next Saturday`s game against an ominously, winless, Bristol City, who have now gone 17 games without a win.
