McAllister, who was a free agent after being released by Shrewsbury at the end of last season, last week signed with Micky Adams' men until January.

The 25-year-old midfielder was an unused substitute for the goalless draw at Southend on Saturday and is looking forward to winning a place in the team to show what he can do.

"Once I do get an opportunity, I'm confident I can impress and win a longer deal," McAllister told the club's official website.

"I'm here until January and it's not a great feeling to have such an uncertain future but I certainly don't want to be in the position I've been in over the last two months again, spending the summer ringing around clubs looking for someone to take me.

"Finding a club as an out-of-work footballer was a lot harder than I thought but I couldn't have found a better team to go to, with Vale second in the league, so I'm delighted to be here and I can't wait to get on the pitch."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
