First-half goals from Louis Dodds and skipper Doug Loft put Vale on their way and striker Ben Williamson capped a one-side affair with his side's third goal 12 minutes after the break.

Vale went into the game having only picked up one point from their previous three games and a delighted Adams said:"It was a terrific performance.

"We were solid and sharp and deserved to win in all departments. I changed the team around and we got our just rewards."

Adams made four changes to the side beaten 2-1 at Sheffield United last Saturday and brought in 21-year-old striker Jordon Hugill for his debut after recalling him from a loan spell at Gateshead.

He added: "I took a chance on him and the boy didn't let us down, that's for sure.

"I wanted to freshen things up and wanted a bit of penetration - that why I played Jordan alongside Ben Williamson. We certainly got that, we got further up the pitch and it was an all-round terrific performance.

"Jordan has got goals in him and it wasn't a gamble really. He scored five goals with Gateshead and now it looks as though he's become a man."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
