Vale celebrated coming out of administration with a thumping win over Bristol Rovers on Tuesday and they went six games unbeaten with a comfortable victory over the struggling Shots in Saturday's League Two clash at the Recreation Ground.

And Adams believes his side showed they are not short in the striking department after missing out on Hughes by just minutes on Thursday's loan deadline day - with the Vale boss otherwise occupied.

"It's been a good week. I took my daughter (Stacey) up the aisle and we've come away with the win," he said. "I said in my speech she could have timed it a little better, deadline day, I can't be here there and everywhere but for once the family came first."

Adams added: "You've got to adapt to the conditions and I thought we did that. There wasn't a lot of great football from both sides but we showed a lot of endeavour and we've ground one out and that's the important thing.

"Ben Williamson has done great, whether we start him or he comes off the bench he gets us goals. He's taken his tally for the season to six, obviously strikers are judged on goals and in any other team that would be a fantastic return but we've got Tom (Pope) up there on 20. So he's got a bit more to do."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
