Stockley and Glover Talk About Wycombe

Stockley and Glover Talk About Wycombe

Prior to tomorrow' game between Wycombe and Port Vale, the Valiants' manager Dean Glover and former Chairboy Sam Stockley have been talking about their opponents.



Port Vale manager Dean Glover is looking forward to pitting his wits against Wycombe boss Peter Taylor.

Glover told The Sentinel Newspaper : 'Peter's reputation precedes him. He's been with the England set-up and he's had different jobs with good clubs. Tactically, he has plenty of experience considering the levels he's coached at, including in Europe with the England set-up, and he has played against different formations abroad. He's been an astute manager at this level and above, so tactically it will be quite interesting to pit my wits against his ... let's see how we go.'

Glover knows The Chairboys should prove a tough nut to crack, but is hopeful his side will end their unbeaten run.

'It will be a hard game in the sense they don't give away much and are very solid as a back eight. They've got experience in their group in terms of strength and power, which makes a difference at our level. Peter has experienced players who have been at this level and above, before. So we're pinning our youth against experience and it can sometimes make a big difference. But why can't we be the first to beat them? We proved what we are capable of at Shrewsbury (Vale won 2-1 last month) and they were on a magnificent run at the time.'


Sam Stockley has also been speaking out ahead of the game.

Ex Chairboy Stockley told his club's official site : 'I had two fantastic years at Wycombe. We got to the semi finals of the League Cup in my first year, and then we got into the play-offs last year so it's a great opportunity to go back as I never really had a chance to say goodbye.'

Stockley has been injured but is hoping to play tomorrow : 'You always want to go back to your old club and do well and if I play, I want to put on a good show as Port Vale are my new club.'

The former Blues defender is pleased with Wycombe's superb start to the League campaign: "It's great to see them doing well. I've got some close friends down there so I wish them all the best. It's changed a lot under new manager Peter Taylor as he's brought lots of players in. In football you come and go, so if you leave a club and they become successful you're pleased for them."

Stockley went on to talk about Wycombe's strengths and their key players.

'Wycombe's key is that they don't concede many goals, so it's going to be tough. I personally think that the way Wycombe have played so far this season they'll get promoted.'

On his ex team mates, Stockley had this to say: "Tommy Doherty is one of the best players outside of the Championship in my eyes, I think he's too good for this level. They've also got Gary Holt, who's played in the Premiership and at international level and their back four is also a massive plus for them because they're so solid."


Of course he hasn't met Angelo Balanta yet.
