Manager – John Askey
Despite coming through the youth ranks at Port Vale, Askey spent virtually his entire playing career at Macclesfield, helping the club win promotion into the Football League. Askey worked for a year as Macclesfield manager in 2003 before moving into a coaching role. He became manager for a second time in 2013 and did a brilliant job in leading the Silkmen back into League Two. After a spell in charge at Shrewsbury, Askey became Vale manager in February 2019.

Pre-Match View
“Plymouth have some good players, but so do we. There's no point pretending this is an easy game, they are among the favourites to go up and will be backed by a big following.” - Port Vale captain Tom Pope
