Eagles In Team Of The Week (4/4/17)
Port Vale are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.
The performance by Chris Eagles in the two nil victory over Wimbledon at the weekend at Vale Park was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.
I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Eagles was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.
'An Eagles-inspired Port Vale pulled themselves out of the Sky Bet League One relegation places, seeing off AFC Wimbledon 2-0 at Vale Park. The winger crossed for Nathan Smith to profit in the first half, before firing a fierce effort in off the post to seal victory.'
It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Eagles for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.
