MATCH PREVIEW: Port Vale

6 September 2013

Testing a new section of the site

United play their third Sky Bet League One league home game of the season on Saturday when they host a Port Vale side who are yet to pick up a win on the road.

Manager Greg Abbott said: “Micky [Adams] is a great manager who has done fantastically well with Port Vale. 

"They’ve lost a couple of games, so their tails will be a little bit down, but we’ll have to be at our best. We’ll have to work hard to stop them getting a foothold but I just think there’s a different mood this week and the lads are feeling excited and confident. It’s a different type of tension in the air and they can’t wait to get out there and get at the opposition.”
