Not sure that is the case in all honesty. I feel the rivalry with Vale at least from our side is quite tame these days compared to when I first started watching Walsall. S*** on the Vale was one of the first songs I heard at Fellows Park and we weren’t playing Vale. It is a bit more enhanced this season because Clarke is their manager.
No reason we can’t get a result there in my mind. Even though we aren’t playing especially well. It’s Port Vale not Liverpool. I’d be surprised if they thrashed us, will be a close game I think.
