  • FT: Port Vale 2 (Loft 20, Pope 41) Town 3 (Ranger 51, Pritchard 65, Byrne 68)
  • Town turn around two-goal deficit to win
  • Robins record first victory on their travels since November 12
  • Ranger, Pritchard and Byrne on scoresheet
  • Murphy makes debut

5:34pm

Well, what a win that was for Swindon Town. Two goals down at half-time and they end up claiming their first away victory since November.

It was a senational display of attacking football and bodes well for the visit of Colchester United to the County Ground on Valentine' Day.

We'll be there for that one, I hope you can join us.

Until then, goodnight.

5:23pm

Mark Cooper has been out to speak to the media. Here's what he has had to say:

"We said at half-time keep going because we were playing well. We were outstanding again in the second half and totally dominated and deserved to win the game.

Swindon Advertiser: Mark Cooper]

MARK COOPER

"When you've got a lot of young players you can't be up and down and rant and rave because you'll frighten them. We tried to encourage them to keep playing football.

"We knew we had a solid base behind half although we conceded two goal and, once we got the first one, we went from strength to strength."

Good win and great comeback. Looks like the penny has finally dropped that we need physical presence to get results in this division. Still need to sort out the shambolic defence though.

What a result. Well done the lads. If only the defence didn't leak like a sieve, imagine how good we'd be. Full marks to Cooper for fielding an attacking line up, and amazing to come back from 2-0 down. How was Murphy?

He was very good. Strong on the ball, tricky with a bit of pace about him.

4:58pm

You can read the full-time report from this afternoon's thrilling contest right here while we wait for the manager and players to emerge.

4:52pm

FULL-TIME

Port Vale 2 (Loft 20, Pope 41) Swindon Town 3 (Ranger 51, Pritchard 65, Byrne 68)

Quite extraordinary stuff from Town. Grit, determination, desire, quality, passion, enthusiasm, creativity. What an afternoon.

4:50pm

SWINDON SUBSTITUTION

Tijane Reis replaces Alex Pritchard, 90

4:47pm

90 mins: Pritchard's shot is deflected for a corner.

4:47pm

Four minutes of added time to come.

4:47pm

90 mins: Cracking effort from Murphy, who forces Neal into a save from 25 yards.

4:44pm

These last 10 minutes are feeling like an eternity.

4:40pm

PORT VALE SUBSTITUTION

Ben Williamson replaces Tom Pope, 84

4:38pm

83 mins: Louis Thompson runs through two challenges and shoots narrowly wide.

4:38pm

YELLOW CARD

Griffith booked for bringing down Louis Thompson, 82

4:35pm

79 mins: Lines's free-kick comes back off the Town wall.

4:33pm

Conditions really are dreadful here now. Driving rain, howling winds, lights aren't great either. Fifteen minutes left.

4:30pm

74 mins: Pope clear's Luongo's effort off the line.

4:28pm

71 mins: Town get away with one here, as Pope rises above Foderingham to head wide. 

4:27pm

PORT VALE SUBSTITUTION

Jordan Hugill replaces Billy Knott, 70

4:26pm

Port Vale 2 Swindon Town 3 (Byrne 68)

Astonishing stuff from Swindon Town. It's another wonderful counter attack from the visitors, with Pritchard finding Smith who crosses for Byrne to just about squeeze home.

4:23pm

YELLOW CARD

Archibald-Henville is booked, 67

4:22pm

Port Vale 2 Swindon Town 2 (Pritchard 65)

It's another out of this world free-kick from Alex Pritchard. Fully 25 yards out, left of centre, whipping and fizzing into the top corner. Neal had no chance.

4:19pm

SWINDON SUBSTITUTION

Jacob Murphy replaces Dany N'Guessan, 63

4:16pm

60 mins: Ranger hits the crossbar after going through one on one with Neal following Griffith's slip.

4:14pm

57 mins: Smith strikes the Vale woodwork with a fizzing effort from the edge of the area.

4:12pm

PORT VALE SUBSTITUTION

Anthony Griffith replaces Gavin Tomlin, 56

4:08pm

Port Vale 2 Swindon Town 1 (Ranger 51)

This is a smooth counter attack from Town. Smith pulls back for Pritchard whose delicate cross is headed in by Ranger at ther back post. Game on.

4:06pm

Attendance here today is 5,306 (284 from Swindon).

4:06pm

47 mins: Pritchard's free-kick lands on the roof of the net.

4:02pm

And we're off again at Vale Park.

4:01pm

The two teams are back out for the second half.

3:49pm

HALF-TIME

Port Vale 2 (Loft 20, Pope 41) Swindon Town 0

Two efforts on target, two goals for Port Vale, who should count themselves very lucky to be in this position at the break. Town gifted them their second and hardly put up a fight to prevent the first. 

Going forward the Robins have looked bright and creative without finding a finish. Yet they still find themselves staring at an away defeat.

3:45pm

Two minutes added to the first half.

3:44pm

42 mins: Pritchard curls at Neal from the edge of the area.

3:44pm

Port Vale 2 (Pope 41) Swindon Town 0

This really is shambolic from Town. One defender clears the ball into the back of another, the ball falls to Pope and, despite the best efforts of Foderingham, the striker squeezes his effort home.

3:39pm

39 mins: Michael Smith's header from Pritchard's corner is tame and easily claimed by Neal.

3:36pm

36 mins: Pritchard shoots high and wide from the top corner of the box.

3:34pm

YELLOW CARD

Lines is booked for a trip on Pritchard, 34

3:32pm

32 mins: Pritchard tries a speculative volley from 25 yards. It's off target. By quite a way.

3:29pm

Swindon certainly haven't fallen apart since the goal but it came just as the home crowd were starting to bget on their own team's backs. Couldn't have been worse timing.

3:22pm

Port Vale 1 (Loft 20) Swindon Town 0

Town were in complete control of this game. Jennison Myrie-Williams turns Darren Ward inside out on the left and crosses low, where Loft gets in front of his marker to stab home.

3:18pm

18 mins: Alex Pritchard volleys narrowly wide at the back post from Nathan Thompson's cross. Best chance of the match so far and a terrific little run from Pritchard to create the space.

3:17pm

YELLOW CARD

Luongo trips Chris Lines in midfield and is booked, 17

3:13pm

13 mins: Massimo Longo's left-footed effort from the edge of the area sails into the Swindon fans behind the Port Vale goal.

3:07pm

Seven mins: Doug Loft's wild volley from the edge of the box hits the top of the GMB Union Stand.

3:06pm

Five mins: Nile Ranger's header loops up into the six-yard box and is punched off the forehead of Dany N'Guessan by Chris Neal.

3:05pm

Four mins: Louis Thompson's shot is deflected out for a corner.

3:03pm

Lots of players unable to keep their footing in the early exchanges here. Looks like a 4-4-2 for Town, with Byrne at left-back and N'Guessan and Pritchard wide midfield.

3:00pm

And we're off. Town attacking the end housing the travelling fans in the first half.

2:57pm

The two teams are out at Vale Park, kick-off is just moments away.

My laptop's about to take off in the high wind here. Keep the ball on the floor will be the main focus of the two teams' pre-match discussions, I'd imagine.

DISCLAIMER

With just over 10 minutes remaining until kick-off, here's a quick reminder of how we are allowed to cover Swindon Town games on the Advertiser website.

Due to restrictions imposed on journalists by Dataco, we are unable to give up-to-the-second commentary of events at the County Ground.

Updates are subject to a three-minute delay under the terms of these restrictions.

If you want full text commentary of the game, log onto Twitter and follow Adver chief sports writer Sam Morshead (@SamMorshead_SA).

Updates will appear on Matchday Live but will be on a three-minute delay.

2:47pm

Just under 15 minutes to go until kick-off at Vale Park, where the temperature is dropping by the second.

2:42pm

Apologies for the lack of updates, ladies and gents, the Adver's liveblogging system is being a bit sluggish. Perhaps, like me, it had one too many helpings of Chinese last night.

Surprised to see Reis on the bench! Thought he was still a little way off? Fair play to the lad

He was on the bench for the games against Oldham and Peterborough as well.

2:35pm

Dany N'Guessan has pledged to prove his worth his place in the Swindon Town side after being dropped recently.

“The manager and me had a chat and we said some things so hopefully we can start again," he told the Advertiser.

“I’m happy at Swindon so hopefully I can carry on and play my football.

“The manager said he knows what I can do and I think maybe he thinks I can bring more. Maybe he is right.

ADVER CHIEF SPORTS WRITER SAM MORSHEAD: "Blimey, that's an attacking line-up for Town. Could it really be a 3-4-3? I imagine it's going to be more like a 3-5-2 with N'Guessan filling a wing-back role.

"Regardless, it's exciting to see. Pritchard, Ranger, Smith, N'Guessan, Luongo, Byrne all in the same team - can't fault Cooper for trying to entertain."

No appeal as far as we're aware. It's McEveley's second suspension of the season so an extra game is added.

With Liverpool 4-0 up at half time against Arsenal, hoping The Town can follow up their excellent midweek performance and get the 3 points. Team Selection will be interesting, i'd bring back Troy to centre back and maybe shove Byrne to left back instead of Reckord who hasn't impressed. Pritch comes back in on the right wing and maybe shunt Gladwin inside to replace Yass (as opposed to Harley who's been poor)

Jacob on the bench, with Miles

Tactics aren't the issue it's the fact that we're dominating the game but can't finish while conceding sloppy goals . It's individual errors that are costing us points more than the system IMO.

I backed Cooper at the start of his reign due to the lack of funds within the club, but his tatics are poor and he does not know how to turn a game around.

A League 2 manager at the most. As I said he will probably get us to Wembley and that will save his bacon, but Power needs to seriously talk to the likes of Glen Hoddle or STFC are going nowhere, lower mid-table at the best.

Come on then lets here it for Cooper and the team now we are winning.

I backed Cooper at the start of his reign due to the lack of funds within the club, but his tatics are poor and he does not know how to turn a game around.

A League 2 manager at the most. As I said he will probably get us to Wembley and that will save his bacon, but Power needs to seriously talk to the likes of Glen Hoddle or STFC are going nowhere, lower mid-table at the best.
Tactics seem to working now 2-2
**** it !.

Not Coopers tatics chum, just the players responding to an earful at half time I expect, which is not really tatics.

Well that is part of it, if it was poor tactics in the first then the tactics must be good now right?
It seemed like we were playing ok in the first half but again we conceded our customary bad defensive goal.
Shots are 14-4 in our favor at the moment with 6-2 on target.
Stats could be a freak of course but this suggests to me we are playing well and the statics are working.

Indeed, it seems I did speak to soon. I hope he proves me wrong, but I don't think so.

My first game was Wembley 1969 and supported the Town for many years after, but I guess like many othersI have had enough of continual disappointment for the money I pay out.

I am annoyed because Power has the chance to approach Hoddle and we can live the dream again. If not then it is your generations time to endure the disappointments.

agreed - good performance according to the radio, especially in tough conditions last 20. I think Cooper said the other day we needed the extra muscle to battle in these type of matches, took him a while to realise but fair play to him

Only 2 points behind Walsall (6th) who are getting beat 0-3 by MK Dons and quite a few of those above us to play at home

Any one of us can approach Hoddle but none of us has the money in our pockets, including Power.
Of course, if you have the funds then go for it..

If not then it is your generations time to endure the disappointments.[/p][/quote]Any one of us can approach Hoddle but none of us has the money in our pockets, including Power. Of course, if you have the funds then go for it.. stfcdod

Port Vale might just score but this will now not take away from a good performance,
agreed - good performance according to the radio, especially in tough conditions last 20. I think Cooper said the other day we needed the extra muscle to battle in these type of matches, took him a while to realise but fair play to him

Only 2 points behind Walsall (6th) who are getting beat 0-3 by MK Dons and quite a few of those above us to play at home
Yes it did take him awhile but it still looks like we are playing with flair.

I backed Cooper at the start of his reign due to the lack of funds within the club, but his tatics are poor and he does not know how to turn a game around.

A League 2 manager at the most. As I said he will probably get us to Wembley and that will save his bacon, but Power needs to seriously talk to the likes of Glen Hoddle or STFC are going nowhere, lower mid-table at the best.
Tactics seem to working now 2-2
**** it !.

Not Coopers tatics chum, just the players responding to an earful at half time I expect, which is not really tatics.
Your comments don't make sense, first you blame cooper coz we are down 2-0 and now that we are winning its nothing to do with cooper? Make your mind up!
fair comment that

Be stronger when Jay returns from his latest suspension, be interesting to see if Ward retains his place when we have a fully fit squad.

Unfortunately it looks like we are stuck with it now for the rest of the season and i think it is still going to cost us dear in terms of a possible play off place.

This i will disagree with you, i am not sure Jay strengthen's us IMO.

As for Ward i think that has been answered today with Branco being dropped.

I think i'd need to see Byrne at left back more to argue but he hasn't been great when i've seen him at left back, saying that he's better than Reckord!! Agree Jay can be very inconsistent but looked to be getting back to his best a few weeks ago before getting injured. Good post match interview, bit of credit for the strikers for a change (is that because he's actually played two never mind one away from home!?)

Not saying Byrne is the answer either,.Reckford i will still give a chance and LOL your last sentence,most of us have been asking for two up front haven't we?
Could understand why he tried 1 or 0 up front, but like you say it looks like he is going two up front.
I think we have now found the right formula.now just need to adjust only for injuries and suspensions IMHO.

Super Cooper turns it round again. Just like Coventry.
What he and Power have achieved with no money (selling to buy) is way beyond most predictions at start of this season.

Could we snatch a Play-Off place? That would be manager of the year performance given the constraints facing the club from the start. And to play with such a great passing style. Doubters should jog on now until next season, even if we don't get to Wembely and even if we finish outside playoffs.

At least we will have a club in profit come pre-season.

Hope that we don't get another reserve team outing next week, but understand why it might happen.

Good weekend to all

Good post and the humble pie being eaten in large chunks tonight with fans too quick to jump down his throat. Credit where it is due and today he got it right with a very attacking side. Yes clean sheets are nice but Vale must have been smarting still from the 5-2 hammering we gave them at the County Ground and as they said on the radio end to end and thrilling game. That is two great comebacks in a week when normally when we concede first its game over. We seem to have that hunger developing and ok may let a few in but as long as we are competing unlike that dross against Oldham then I am happy. I criticized Cooper after that game and he answered that in the best way possible with two fantastic results this week. We won't win every game and we are not Man City so just chill and look at the whole picture of what is going on at STFC. We have brought in a couple of great players recently and the squad has that very good look about it with injured players returning so lets all try and show a little more patience.

FANTASTIC!! First win of the season for me and what a way to do it.

Great team selection by Coops, players were really up for it, travelling fans were magnificent and Alex's goal was wonderful.

Looked like two teams from completely different divisions from the start despite being next to each other in the league.

That'll keep me going for a few months.

Great win, listened to most of first half on the radio while in the car and we seemed to be creating the chances so not surprised we came back. Another massive step to the boys becoming men perhaps. Need to keep it going but... COYMR Oxon-Red

is not a question of eating humble pie,the last 2results show the team do have guts.
Great result no question,however this had to happen sooner or later.
As for Copper he was handed the job on a plate.I feel he just aint the person to manage stfc, ok I will get slagged off however is only my opinion be it wrong or right.
Great result and hope cooper can motivate them if he can over the next several games.
THAT IS THE TIME TO EAT HUMBLE PIE
Do wish him all the luck in the world just prove all us who have doubts we are totally wrong
As said today Town what a result

Superb performance today. Some thoughts....

Loved the 4-4-2 been saying for a while I would like to see that formation with 2 proper wingers and Smith and Ranger up front it worked really well.

All our midfield and full backs were attacking the opposition at speed really getting at them and caused them loads of problems. Created loads of good chances and 55% possession too.

Not only did we want it more we were better technically, when we attack like that we look different class

That's 2 games on the trot Ranger has worked his socks off, hopefully his heads in a good place at the moment he really can be top quality when his minds on it

Liked the look of Murphy, made a difference when he came on. Good feet, pace, and looked to get the shot away. Can see goals and assists from this lad hope we can keep him to the end of the season.

That's the best week in a Town shirt for several players - notably Luongo, Louis and Ranger.

Defence still a bit suspect, goals came from errors again, but not criticising them today as apart from the goals Wes had little to do.

For Posh 2nd leg hope we stick with the 4-4-2, with Mass and Louis in CM, and Murphy in for Danny, and Storey in for ineligible Smith.

Should also give Cooper a mention. After the Oldham fiasco he's also had a great week. Maybe we needed to dip that low to focus some minds. Only 2 games since but you can't fault the effort of the players or the tactics in the two games since so well done to him. Defence obviously needs working on but lets not be too greedy.

The other question for me is can Louis fill the defensive midfielder role we have been clamouring for? The signs look promising......plus Cooper may have struck gold with the 2 of them in centre midfield together. There was more space for them and plenty of width for them as well. Louis filling in for the marauding full backs was noted as well - like he'd been playing the role for years. Mason Harley and Kasim may struggle getting back in the team for a while.

Unfortunately it looks like we are stuck with it now for the rest of the season and i think it is still going to cost us dear in terms of a possible play off place.
Couldn't agree more regarding the defence. Ward was turned inside out for their goal and their scorer nipped in front of T A-H to score. Both are OK with the play in front of them where they can head or boot clear but both have the speed and turning circle of the QE2.
Having said that I thought the whole teams performance, including Coopers was exactly what was needed yesterday. We picked a team to beat them and the conditions. We played well in both halves and must have had about ten corners in the first, the only difference was we took our chances in the second. Several contenders for MoM but think Pritch shaded it. Byrne looked good at full back too. The Norwich lad looked lively and confident. What a player he'd be if he had two feet.
A Vale supporter complimented me on our performance afterwards and on BBC Stoke several said what a good side we are.

Old-Stager, Hilperton says...

Great performance yesterday by the Town, and I am pleased to admit that my 2-1 win for Port Vale forecast was wrong.
Let's make sure that we get 3 points against Colchester Utd on Friday to give us 47 Points in the League, which will virtually guarantee safety this season, and get to Wembley as well.
I personally dont think we will make the play-offs, although we have certainly exceeded our expectations under Mark Cooper,
Also the home game against Peterborough United is far from a certainty given their recent upturn in form in the League which is 3 wins in 4., and bearing in mind that although we recently beat them at home, I think they were the better team on the day.
But I am always pessimistic about my lifetime favourite team, so hopefully they will prove me wrong and win the play-offs and get revenge on Chesterfield at Wembley to win the Paint-Pot Trophy.

Just to clarify on the 'who was at fault' issue for the 2 vale goals.

First one came from a misjudged Byrne header that went backwards instead of forwards. That drew Wardy out of position to close down the attacker leaving Troy on his own in the middle. The attacker did turn Ward but then the other forward nipped in front of Troy and bagged. Byrne header the main problem, but a smart finish.

Second goal was very fortunate, a Troy clearing header hit a Vale forward and ended up with the unmarked Pope who bundled it just over the line. Maybe not the best clearing header and perhaps Wes could have done better, but very fortunate for Vale.

Other than that the Troy and Ward partnership looked relatively untroubled

Nothing wrong with being positive but LR is stating the bleeding obvious. Of course we'll all be happy if we win our next two games - but we haven't played them yet, have we? If we lose them both, the general mood will be gloomy again. Isn't it better just to enjoy the fact that we seemed to take a step in the right direction on Tuesday and then picked up 3 important points with another good performance yesterday. Can you tell me what's not positive about that? It gets mocked a lot but there's actually a good deal of sense in the well worn football cliche - take each game as it comes.

Superb result especially after going two down and i thought the worst when i heard we were two down against the run of play. But the team showed some real desire and committment to tirn it around and well done to all the players for the performance and coming to win from behind.
If this team really believes and can put this performance in to our remaining away games this season we could just sneak a play off place. The team MC picked was spot on with loads of attacking options and i only hope we can see more of this in our away games. To win you need to attack which is also the best form of defence. We let two sloppy goals in again which has been the case all season but again well done to the players nad MC for being spot on.
We need to beat Colchester now on friday and the other teams will be under pressure then to win on saturday.
Great three points.

I'd agree with your analysis of the goals Wilesy but not sure I'd agree the partnership looked untroubled. Ward was fairly inconsistent, some good blocks but failed to read the game well at other times. TAH looked very commanding in the air but is slow and easily by-passed by a quick break.

Luckily yesterday, Port Vale were so poor and even with our defensive frailties, they were lucky to score 2 goals. On another day we would have won that game 5 - 1.

Win at home to Col U and we are in 6th - with Walsall travelling to Posh the next day. So come Tuesday we could be in POs and going to Wembley - what a difference a week or 2 can make compared to all the doom and gloom last week!
Best not count our chickens LR!, do a Mourinho and play it down and with our defence we ain't got a clue we're our next clean sheet coming from!!!!!!

Getting ahead of yourself again LR.
How does the song go - ' Always look on the bright side of Life - da dum da dum daadaa dum.

Shame more aren't like LR I say... I think it's good to have a positive attitude.
Nothing wrong with being positive but LR is stating the bleeding obvious. Of course we'll all be happy if we win our next two games - but we haven't played them yet, have we? If we lose them both, the general mood will be gloomy again. Isn't it better just to enjoy the fact that we seemed to take a step in the right direction on Tuesday and then picked up 3 important points with another good performance yesterday. Can you tell me what's not positive about that? It gets mocked a lot but there's actually a good deal of sense in the well worn football cliche - take each game as it comes.
Doubt you'll get an answer on that one Den?

Maybe LR has been reading Lewis Caroll.... Through the looking glass!

Just to clarify on the 'who was at fault' issue for the 2 vale goals.

First one came from a misjudged Byrne header that went backwards instead of forwards. That drew Wardy out of position to close down the attacker leaving Troy on his own in the middle. The attacker did turn Ward but then the other forward nipped in front of Troy and bagged. Byrne header the main problem, but a smart finish.

Second goal was very fortunate, a Troy clearing header hit a Vale forward and ended up with the unmarked Pope who bundled it just over the line. Maybe not the best clearing header and perhaps Wes could have done better, but very fortunate for Vale.

Other than that the Troy and Ward partnership looked relatively untroubled
Wilesy,

Agree with the analysis of the goals. However not sure if ball came off a Vale player. If it did then shouldn't Pope have been flagged offside ?

Don,

Clean sheets are great but I'd personally not worry about them if we are scoring more goals than the opponents.

The attacker did turn Ward but then the other forward nipped in front of Troy and bagged. Byrne header the main problem, but a smart finish.

Second goal was very fortunate, a Troy clearing header hit a Vale forward and ended up with the unmarked Pope who bundled it just over the line. Maybe not the best clearing header and perhaps Wes could have done better, but very fortunate for Vale.

Other than that the Troy and Ward partnership looked relatively untroubled
I'd agree with your analysis of the goals Wilesy but not sure I'd agree the partnership looked untroubled. Ward was fairly inconsistent, some good blocks but failed to read the game well at other times. TAH looked very commanding in the air but is slow and easily by-passed by a quick break.

Luckily yesterday, Port Vale were so poor and even with our defensive frailties, they were lucky to score 2 goals. On another day we would have won that game 5 - 1.
A bit unfair on Troy I feel as he has played just a few weeks football in over 12 months is it. Surely he will be well off the pace in matchplay.

Nothing wrong with being positive but LR is stating the bleeding obvious. Of course we'll all be happy if we win our next two games - but we haven't played them yet, have we? If we lose them both, the general mood will be gloomy again. Isn't it better just to enjoy the fact that we seemed to take a step in the right direction on Tuesday and then picked up 3 important points with another good performance yesterday. Can you tell me what's not positive about that? It gets mocked a lot but there's actually a good deal of sense in the well worn football cliche - take each game as it comes.
Doubt you'll get an answer on that one Den?

Maybe LR has been reading Lewis Caroll.... Through the looking glass!
Oh dear you got it wrong yet again Jock ... tchh you'll never learn will you....To be honest Jock didn't think there was any point ... ... what ever further I say, an even more long winded reply happens.
The whole point IMO was to feel more positive about things and perhaps have a little dream or two, much better than Wrist Slashers United I would say..

Back to my comfy armchair again ..... come on Fulham !!! ...dam its 1-1 now even worse now 1-2
We'll have a fishy on a little dishy - we'll have a fishy when the bait gets taken! So it's ok for you to have a sly pop at Den but not for anyone to have the same against you. Yep back to your armchair - careful with your Chalfonts!
Nothing sly about it as you try and imply .... and pop ? what do you mean, am I not allowed to differ .. or are there untouchables on here... seems that way.
Farmer Giles - hows yours since you tried that new cream... your mate said next time you borrow his cream can you wash the applicator before handing it back please.
There are no untouchables on here to be fair to Jockster, except Chish and Fips, DKO, Wizard, etc. etc.etc. ALL the same person, how sad is that??

Back off Malky and leave the Inner Circle untouchables alone, you should know better by now than to challenge the one and only......... dick.

As an aside, I always wondered how you fit a comfy armchair into a caravan, do the Fire Brigade have to cut a section out of the roof, for example?

Wilesy,

Agree with the analysis of the goals. However not sure if ball came off a Vale player. If it did then shouldn't Pope have been flagged offside ?

COYMR
No Nathan T had tracked the crosser and was on the touchline plus Mass and Byrne played him onside too. Wardy was out of position so Danny although hed done well to track back wasnt tight enough to Pope.

Compared to the defensive showing at Posh on Tuesday they were like a brick wall!

Personally I didn't feel we were that threatened by Vale, several times too the defenders just took the balls off the attackers with ease.

First one came from a misjudged Byrne header that went backwards instead of forwards. That drew Wardy out of position to close down the attacker leaving Troy on his own in the middle. The attacker did turn Ward but then the other forward nipped in front of Troy and bagged. Byrne header the main problem, but a smart finish. Second goal was very fortunate, a Troy clearing header hit a Vale forward and ended up with the unmarked Pope who bundled it just over the line. Maybe not the best clearing header and perhaps Wes could have done better, but very fortunate for Vale. Other than that the Troy and Ward partnership looked relatively untroubled[/p][/quote]I'd agree with your analysis of the goals Wilesy but not sure I'd agree the partnership looked untroubled. Ward was fairly inconsistent, some good blocks but failed to read the game well at other times. TAH looked very commanding in the air but is slow and easily by-passed by a quick break. Luckily yesterday, Port Vale were so poor and even with our defensive frailties, they were lucky to score 2 goals. On another day we would have won that game 5 - 1.[/p][/quote]Compared to the defensive showing at Posh on Tuesday they were like a brick wall! Personally I didn't feel we were that threatened by Vale, several times too the defenders just took the balls off the attackers with ease.[/p][/quote]That's what's been missing at the back Wilesy - efficient castration of the opposition strikers![/p][/quote]Your right Den, we could do with a bit more nip and tuck. mancrobin
