Vale looked down and out against Swindon on Saturday when goals from Dany N'Guessan, Nile Ranger and Massimo Luongo saw the Robins coast into the 3-0 lead.

But Adams' men did not make it comfortable for their hosts and top scorer Tom Pope rounded goalkeeper Wes Foderingham to pull a goal back after 73 minutes.

And the County Ground was silenced with 10 minutes left when Lee Hughes smashed home from two yards out to bring the visitors to within a single goal.

However, further efforts from Nathan Byrne and Luongo eventually saw Swindon win 5-2.

Adams said: "Our inconsistency has reared its ugly head again.

"From looking a decent side last week our frailties were exposed.

"We have to be on our game at all times, defend properly and do the right thing. If we don't do that we get punished because we are not good enough.

"We have not shown any real desire to defend properly and at this level if you don't do that you get punished."

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.
