Vale forward Mohamed was in action in Saturday's 2-1 win over Bradford in League One.

The 29-year-old, who joined the Valiants from Cheltenham this summer, believes he needs regular football in order to boost his sharpness and is looking forward to playing some part against Oldham at the weekend.

He told the club's official website: "Nobody likes being on the bench, it's more or less just about waiting for your chance and then obviously just taking it.

"I thought I did well during the 90 minutes, I think I need a few games to get up to match fitness.

"I am feeling fit but playing games makes you feel sharper, I am just glad to be in the team, winning and getting three points.

"I think I can give a lot more, it was my first game, I was a little bit nervy but you want to get into it and do the right things.

"I'm excited to be playing and I can't wait to be playing on Saturday again.

"I try and bring energy, every time I get the ball I am looking to create something and get forward.

"The gaffer wants me to be positive and just get at defenders and just cause problems really."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
