We look forward to tonight’s game at Port Vale

The U’s

United will look to continue their good form as they take on Port Vale in front of the Sky cameras tonight (7.45pm)

Having drawn with leaders Gillingham in their last league game and then beaten third placed Cheltenham in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, United are starting to hit form and that has coincided with one or two senior players returning to the fold.

Andy Whing, Harry Worley and Peter Leven all featured at Whaddon Road last week and are in the squad again, while Lee Cox, Alfie Potter, and skipper Jake Wright are all fit again and pushing for places.

Up front James Constable and Tom Craddock both scored last week and will be hoping to continue up front, while Sean Rigg will also be hoping to get the nod against his former club.

The Opposition

Manager Micky Adams is looking forward to showing off his high-flying side in front of the Sky cameras tonight.

"We'll be playing to a wider audience and we're looking forward to it," he told thisisstaffordshire.

"It's a chance for everyone to showcase themselves, both as individuals and as a team, and I'll be disappointed if we don't put on a show. The TV coverage will provide a fantastic stage on which to perform in front of captive audience."

I would hope people who don't generally watch games at this level and who perhaps prefer the bright lights of the Premier League will go away and say, 'I tell you what, that was a good game. There are some good players in that division'."

"We are second in the table and we're there to be shot at. There is always pressure when you're at the top of the table because you want to stay there. You probably have to work twice as hard to stay there as to get there in the first place, but I'd rather be there than at the bottom."
