Port Vale begin a run of three games in five days when they take on non league side Maidenhead in their FA Cup reply tonight (November 19).

With two league wins either side of the disappointing draw at home to Maidenhead in the original tie, boss Rob Page is confident they can ‘progress in the competition’.


Port Vale manager Rob Page said he was frustrated following his team’s draw at home against non-league Maidenhead United in the FA Cup.

The National League South side scored an injury time equaliser in last Sunday’s game to set up a replay on Thursday 19 November, with the winners travelling to Exeter City in the second round.

The Stoke-on-Trent minnows squandered several chances as a Rob Ramshaw hat-trick and one from Alex Rodman knocked United out of the cup.
