Port Vale manager Micky Adams was delighted with his side following their fourth successive away win but insisted the hard part will be to continue their impressive run.

His team brushed aside the challenge of Macclesfield with two goals from Marc Richards and one from Sean Rigg as they went joint-top of the table with Shrewsbury.

He said: ``Macclesfield had their spells but it was how we dealt with their danger, particularly from set pieces and I thought we coped very, very well and we made up for the defeat last year. They deserved their win last year, they won all their individual battles but today we won our individual battles."

He added: ``Obviously I'm delighted that we have achieved a club record for away wins but what I want to know is can we keep it going. I want more than four and that's what I'm going to be asking the players. If you're asking me how I keep their feet on the ground, it's because I run them and we work them hard.

``I'm delighted that we're second in the league but it's very early days yet and you can start looking at the table after about 10 games. We have a very strong squad, we've got players like Lewis Haldane coming back and the good thing is we don't have to force them back into the team because our results have been so good.

``At this level you're just waiting for the wheels to drop off. The highs become very high and the lows very low so we've just got to keep our feet on the ground but we've got a very strong squad at the moment and confidence is extremely high."
