Video & Quotes from the boss...

  • Sarll on wanting to finish off the week in style...

“It has been a really pleasing week, we are not finished yet though are we so I think it is a little too early to start clapping the players and saying we have had enough.

"I don’t think you ever really put in a performance like we did on Tuesday night without in the back of your mind thinking, 'let’s not let that be in vain'.

“We have got to make sure we try and carry on the good work. Let’s see it out, let’s see this one through and nine points in a week would be a terrific collection for the time period."

  • Sarll on recovering after Tuesday's long trip...

“Most of the boys walked through the doors at 5am. Any of these delusions of grandeur that footballers in League Two are pampered - we were exactly the same as all those supporters who did the long trip.

“Some really sore bodies and we have seen them today for the first time. As you can imagine the mood is buoyant, positive and very much looking forward to the weekend’s test.

“I think we hit a personal best in distance covered on Tuesday night and all three substitutions were because of knocks and precautions.

“They you get the fatigue, tiredness and stiffness. We will have to wait until tomorrow to see who we can roll onto the pitch. They put in a terrific effort over two games.

  • Sarll on Port Vale's quality...

“They are a good group of players. If you pull them individually it is a good group. Some of them I have worked with before, Tom Pope in particular, who has an indifferent reputation but I absolutely loved the time I spent with Tom at Rotherham. Massive character and was great with me and great with the youth team.

“It will be a tough game. Pope, Tyrone Barnett, Lawrie Wilson, Anthony Kay, Kelle Roos - all good players. Majority of their careers have been spent in League One or the Championship in some cases so it is a good collection of players.

“I know obviously the club is going through a certain time at the moment but I don’t really think that is for us to comment or focus on. All I can do is look at who they have and what they try to do, and who we have and what we try to do.

“Some people thought we would have had an easier night at home to Crawley the other week – it was a tough game, it was as tough as they have come.”
