Port Vale: Variety the spice of home life for Valiants
PORT Vale are planning to tinker with their attacking approach in a bid to maintain momentum.
Assistant boss Mark Grew says the Valiants could make slight tactical adjustments as they look to see off play-off hopefuls Exeter City.
"We've done one or two things differently on the training ground," he said.
"That doesn't necessarily mean a change of formation, but we've changed some of the things we're going to do.
"We've watched the DVDs and feel there has to be more variation to our play.
"I can't tell you everything about it, for obvious reasons, but we'll stay as positive as always.
"The performance in the last home game against Morecambe (0-1 defeat) wasn't actually that bad.
"We had plenty of chances then and if we keep creating them, we'll be ok."
Paul Tisdale's Exeter have mirrored Vale's record with 10 wins on the road so far.
But Grew is hoping the Grecians' attacking style might be their downfall at Vale Park.
"We had them watched at Burton on Saturday and while that wasn't one of their better performances, it will be about what they do next," he said."If they want to stay in the play-off positions, they have to come here to try to win, so it will be interesting."They won't want a draw after a defeat so they'll come here in a positive frame of mind to try to get the three points. And that will suit us.
"We played them at start of the season, and they're probably one of the best footballing sides in the division."They like to play out from the back and they've got some good players in there so we've got to be on our toes."
