ROB AIMS TO STRIKE IN MARKET
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.”
