We got our reward - Adams

26 August 2012

Port Vale boss Micky Adams was delighted after seeing his side score two late goals to earn an excellent 3-1 victory at Morecambe.

A header from John McCombe two minutes from time followed by a 92nd minute injury-time strike from Tom Pope gave the Valiants a welcome win as they responded well to their midweek defeat at Accrington.

Adams said: "I thought we were excellent and fully deserved the win and bounce back in style from the Accrington game. We had a fantastic start and controlled the game for 30 minutes and were unlucky not to add to our tally.

"Unfortunately we gave away a poor goal just after the half hour. That put them back in the game and I was really disappointed to be only level at half-time.

"We went on to defend a little bit too deep at times but we always had the better chances of the game and I thought we got our reward at the end against a decent side. We now have six points from three games but I think we could have had nine from nine because I think we have been the better team in all three.

"Our style of play has evolved and have had to do things differently, but the lads seem to be enjoying it and are playing well."

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley was disappointed not to have taken something from the game after coming back from the shock of conceding a goal in the first minute of the game.

He said: "It is a game that I cannot believe we haven't won. It was shocking for us to concede with only a few seconds on the clock but we showed some spirit to come back from that and get level.

"They had an early chance in the second half but after that I thought we were the only team that was going to win it but we got hit by a sucker punch at the death and that was all the more frustrating.

"We had a bit of an inquest after the game and the players had their say. They are as disappointed as I am because they know as well as I do that they should not have lost this game."
