Glover vows to battle on

Published Add your comment

Port Vale manager Dean Glover brushed off the chants aimed at him from fans after their 1-0 defeat at the hands of promotion-chasing Lincoln.

The Vale faithful have became increasingly disgruntled over recent weeks and Friday night's home defeat to the Imps sparked fury from the fans as they started calling for the 45-year-old`s head.

But Glover said: "I've been in the game for 30 years and you have to have a thick skin. It has to be like water off a duck's back because you have to keep believing."

He added: "Of course I can understand the reaction of the fans. That was our ninth home defeat of the season and it's not good.

"I'm used to taking stick and it's part and parcel when you are in charge of a team which isn't getting results.

"The players will be back in on Sunday and we will keep working hard until we turn it around. We've got a young side, but the lads have to learn fast."
