Port Vale: We'll work hard to put things right, says Burge
RYAN Burge is looking on a midweek game against Bristol Rovers as a chance to make amends.
The midfielder was left gutted by Vale's inability to press home a two-goal advantage against York City, and says the players are determined to put things right at Vale Park tomorrow night.
Burge bagged his second goal of the season when he put the home side ahead after 30 minutes of Saturday's clash.
And though Jennison Myrie-Williams doubled the lead with a penalty before half-time, the Valiants had to settle for a draw in the end.

"We're all really disappointed," said the 24-year-old. "We went two up and were looking comfortable, but we took our foot off the pedal, sat too deep and let them come on to us.
"That's the second time in two home games that we've let a two-goal lead slip and we've got to put it right.
"Luckily there's another game on Tuesday night and it can't come quickly enough.
"We'll have a look at the video, work out where we're going wrong and look to get back to winning ways."
Vale take on a Rovers side fourth from bottom of the table, but Burge insists they won't be taking it lightly.
"We've been dropping valuable points at home and it shows there are no easy games in this league," he added.
"Whether our opponents are at the top or the bottom, you can't take anything for granted.
"I was impressed by York, but we knew what they are about. We knew they'd come and try to pass it, but I felt it was our own mistakes that cost us. It wasn't like we couldn't get anywhere near them."
Vale's run of five league games without a win is in contrast to their sparkling form earlier in the season, but Burge is not worried.
"We're still second in the table," he said. "Most teams have a little bad patch at some point and if you can get through that and still be second, it won't have been such a bad thing.
"It's not like teams are playing us off the park. We've been in control at times and it has been in our hands, so we just have to put it right."
