ACE POPE PLEAS FOR FANS’ HELP

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

PORT VALE striker Tom Pope is look­ing up rather than down the League One ta­ble.

Vale have en­dured a mis­er­able start to the sea­son, cul­mi­nat­ing in Micky Adams stand­ing down as man­ager.

But Pope be­lieves that a pro­mo­tion chal­lenge could still be on the cards – with the help of the fans.

He said:“We know what we are ca­pa­ble of. There’s no rea­son why we can’t put a win­ning run to­gether. No mat­ter what any­one says, when you are los­ing games it is dis­heart­en­ing.

“I know we have to give the fans some­thing to shout about, but it works both ways. When play­ers are low on con­fi­dence the crowd can lift you that ex­tra ten per cent.”
