From the off we were up and at them
That's played 7
W3 D1 L3=10 pts
Vale supporters reckon we were the best team they have played this season and they were lucky not to have been three goals down in the first 15 minutes, I make them right.
Aiden O'Brien hit a left footed shot just a few minutes into the game which was going in to the top left corner before it was saved. We came again and Aiden O'Brien had another shot saved after another couple of minutes but this time in the bottom right corner. Shortly afterwards Ed Upson, Steve Morison and Aiden O'Brien yet again all come close.
This team is looking good and after two consecutive wins on the road the Lions move just one point outside the play off spots. I know it's early but not much to shout about recently so I can't hold it back. We are starting to look a class act and Neil Harris is doing what ever it he is doing and it is bringing in the results.
We dominated the first half with still more shots coming in on the Port Vale goal, Steve Morison was working well with O'Brien and it was amazing that we went in at half-time stuck at 0-0. With the 200 making their selves heard Millwall started the second half with the hope of putting one in the back of the net. We did not have to wait as Mark Beevers scored in the 57th minute with his head and the travelling support punched the sky with sheer delight. Port Vale picked their game up once they went behind but we stood firm. We still had more chances and right at the death Lee Gregory was awarded a penalty as the Vale keeper lunged and fetched him down. Gregory scored and that was that.
THE HOME QUESTION
Southend United this Saturday and can we finally bring a closure to the "we can't win at home syndrome" I think we will but none of us should come to the Den with a miserable face.
Neil Harris wants and needs our support, so let's give it to him and I reckon we as a club could go anywhere.
