Sinnott Blasts Goal Shy Vale

Sinnott Blasts Goal Shy Vale

Port Vale manager Lee Sinnott was left reeling after the 2-0 loss to Swansea City. His call comes after the lack of prowess in front of goal despite having the lions share of chances in a highly riveting first half.

Swansea were lucky not to go behind afte Luke Rodgers saw his shot sail over the bar and after Aston Villa loanee Chris Herd's shot was well saved by Dorus De Vries. Jason Scotland made it 1-0 on 63 minuses when the South Wales side were awarded a penalty after Andy Robinson was fouled in the box by defender David Mulligan. With no hesitation under fire referee Ray Lee pointed to the spot.

Swansea's penalty jinx ended when top scorer Jason Scotland coolly converted the spot kick. 13 minutes later Ferrie Bodde got the final touch after Thomas Butler's effort struck the bar to send Swansea into a 2 goal lead.

The loss leaves the Stoke club firmly rooted to the bottom of leauge one with games running out to mount a bid for leauge one survival.

The former Farsley Celtic manager also insisted that Jason Scotland's goal gave Swansea the belief and the edge to open up the game.

He Told the Sentiel:

'I thought we were the team in the ascendancy for the first 45 minutes. This was against a very good team in Swansea.'

But goals change games and change the mental psyche of teams. You only had to see once Swansea got their noses in front - they were like a peacock with its feathers. They were very efficient.'

You have to take your opportunities when they come along, but never more so than against a team at the top of the league.'



Port Vale will now turn their attentions to the midweek fixture to Milwall in a bid to avoid the drop.

sounded like we were being ripped apart in the first half on the radio.
