ARGYLE’S third-round FA Cup tie at Port Vale has been moved to Sunday, January 5 at 3pm – on the toss of a coin.The match has been switched from the previous day because Vale’s Potteries’ neighbours, Premier League Stoke City, have also been drawn at home the same weekend, to Leicester City. With no agreement possible between the two clubs, the FA decided who had Saturday primacy by flipping a coin.
Having failed to land a glamour tie, Argyle manager John Sheridan is looking forward to pitting his wits against former Leeds United team-mate Micky Adams, his counterpart at League 1 Vale.
“It’ll be a tough game,” said John. “I know Micky really well and they are going really well. We would have liked one of the big boys, for financial reasons, but if we play to our best, we have got a good chance of getting through the game.
“I think Micky will realise that. He probably wanted a home draw and he’s got a second division team, so they will be confident of going through. They have got some good players but we’ll go there, give it our best shot and we have got a chance if we play to our best.
“We are not going to go there thinking we are beaten already. We have got a chance of winning, if we can play the way we have been playing.”
The pricing structure will be as follows:
Adults (18-61yo) - £18
Concessions (62 & over and 13-17yo) - £12
Children (12 & under) - £6
All the above will go on sale as soon as we have received tickets from Port Vale. Stay tuned to this website and @Only1Argyle on Twitter to get the very latest news on this and all club events and activity.
