Accrington Stanley blog: Future is positive for club now

THE bad vibes were all coming from the Port Vale manager after the game with his club facing administration.

He is in a very tough place at the minute and a draw at lowly Stanley will have not helped him one bit.

Stoke-on-Trent Council has declared its intention to place Port Vale into administration.

The club last went into administration in 2002 and their outlook is bleak.

What a difference to our present situation with the tax man paid and our humble club spending within its means.

We face a positive future off the field for the first time in an age.

Paul Cook finally took a point from a game and we scored for the first time under his leadership.

His squad had been hit with injuries prior to the match but the team spirit was there for all to see.

Will Hatfield had a great day, scoring his first ever Football League goal after only being on the pitch for a few minutes. He has re-signed on a permanent deal and, by all accounts, he has grafted well in training.

Now, following that super-sub appearance, I hope he can make it into the starting XI at Bradford tonight.

If we can come back from Yorkshire with three points we will only be three points from the safety zone of 50 points.

I think that once we have crossed that barrier the squad will feel a weight lifted and will push on to towards a top 10 finish.
