The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

A STRIKER is top of Port Vale’s shop­ping list this month, boss Rob Page has re­vealed.

Top league goalscorer Uche Ik­peazu, 20, has ended his loan spell at Vale Park and re­turned to Wat­ford.

And al­though AJ LeitchSmith has taken on some of the bur­den with six goals in his last ten games, Page knows he needs more fire­power if Vale are to climb away from mid-ta­ble.

“We need a goalscorer,” he said.“We have enough at the back and in the middle of the park.

“All sea­son we have been cry­ing out for th­ese lads that are go­ing to get us the goals and I think we are close to hav­ing a suc­cess­ful se­cond half of the sea­son.”
