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."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
