Port Vale: We are a team of entertainers, says wide boy Vincent
WIDE BOY Ashley Vincent is revelling in his role as one of Port Vale's great entertainers.
The 27-year-old has hit top form to help the high-flying Valiants become leading scorers in the country.
And the livewire forward, who hit his second goal in as many games as Vale came from behind to beat Plymouth, is loving every minute.
"The players that the gaffer has brought in this summer and the way he has set us up means we are going to be quite entertaining," said Vincent.

"We might concede a few, but I think we'll score more goals than we concede and that's what football is about. We want to entertain, but at the same time we want to win games and we're doing both at the moment."
Vincent rounded off a brilliant move by converting a cross from fellow wing man Jennison Myrie-Williams as the visitors shrugged off a lacklustre first-half display to make it 16 goals for the season with an impressive display after the break.
"Yeah it was a good goal," he said. "Jeno (Myrie-Williams) has great awareness and he did brilliantly to set me up.
"Some players would have got to the byline and just fizzed the ball across the box. But he has the ability to have a look and pick someone out.
"I'm in acres of space and I've just got to put it away in the end, but all of the hard work was done before. Tom Pope set Jeno away and he then picked the right pass for me."
Vincent admitted Vale had started slowly.
"We didn't really get going as normal in the first half," he added.
"It's not the easiest place to come. It's a long way from home and they're a good side. So we got a bit of a rollicking at half-time and probably rightly so.
"The gaffer wanted me and Jeno to get the ball down and get at their defenders. He fancies us against anyone in this league and, without meaning to blow my own trumpet, we're good players.
"If we keep producing the goods for the team, we'll see how far it takes us."
Vincent has been delighted by Vale's good start to the season, and is looking forward to some stern challenges ahead.
"We've done well so far and it's a lot better looking down (the table) than up. Long may it continue.
"There are some tough games coming up with Fleetwood away tomorrow and Gillingham at home, but we fancy ourselves."
