Port Vale assistant manager Paul Bodin looks forward to play-off possiblity


Port Vale assistant manager Paul Bodin feels the team has what it takes to reach the League One play-offs.

The Valiants have enjoyed a good season so far, with 52 points under their belt with only 10 games left to go in the season.

The assistant manager says that Vale’s current position table means they have less to worry about.

Bodin said: “Relegation worries can affect the whole club, not just your own personal career.

“This is a different outlook, we’re confident, you can tell there’s an edge in training.

“There’s a confidence about the place.”

Midfielder Michael O’Connor emphasised that Port Vale’s play-off hopes depend on their performance in the next few matches.

“There’s 10 games left, if we get six wins, 70 points might get us in there,” he said.

Port Vale face an injury-hit Peterborough United on Saturday.

O’Connor said that it will be Vale’s efforts that will make the difference.

“It’s a chance to go to Peterborough and get a win,” he added.

“They’ve still got some injuries, but it’s down to us to go down there and but a performance in.”
