Micky Adams was quick to brush off the disappointment of missing out on signing Lee Hughes after watching Port Vale beat Aldershot 3-1.

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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
