Neil Aspin confident ahead of FA Cup replay at Yeovil Town


Neil Aspin claims Yeovil Town’s late equaliser last time out was a ‘kick in the teeth’, but says his team need to be positive heading into the FA Cup Replay.

Vale travel close to 200 miles tonight, as they face Yeovil in the replay of the FA Cup second round tie.

Aspin’s side will be full of confidence heading into the fixture, having seen off Cambridge United 2-0 last Saturday, and the Vale boss is confident his side can progress: “I was really disappointed conceding the late equaliser. It was a real kick in the teeth.

“If we look at the game overall, we deserved to win that game.

“We’ve got to be positive going into Tuesday night’s game. I expect the players to give it a real good go.

“We’re desperate to get through.”

The Vale boss also claims that the near four-hour journey is not a problem and insists it won’t affect his players: “I’m not really bothered about the distance involved, you’ve just got to get on with.

“The concern is that the players play to the best of their ability. That’s all I’m looking for.

“They’ve proved that when everybody does their job’s correctly, they can get results.

“It doesn’t concern me too much if the games are home or away, we’ve just got to have the same approach.”

A win this evening would see Vale welcome league one outfit, Bradford City, to Vale Park in the third round.

Kick-off is 7:45pm tonight at Huish Park.
