Port Vale manager Micky Adams insists his side will go into the FA Cup clash with Accrington full of confidence after they extended their unbeaten run to 11 games by thrashing 10-man Stockport 5-0 to go top of the League Two table.
Sean Rigg opened the scoring before two Marc Richards penalties, the first which saw Stockport's Mansour Assoumani sent off, put Vale in control and Justin Richards and substitute Jake Speight added gloss to the scoreline in injury time.
"From back to front we were right on our game, so of course I'm delighted," said Adams.
"We're all full of confidence at the moment, but we'll be tested once again on Friday against Accrington.
"It wasn't a perfect performance, but it was a thoroughly deserved victory. We were well on top and we played some great football at times.
"The first penalty was a penalty, so after their man was sent off I suppose it was damage limitation for Stockport after that. It was a real team effort though, a good group effort from the lads. We've got players on the bench who can change games."
