Port Vale: Ben Purkiss says MK Dons win can work wonders
PORT Vale's joint captain Ben Purkiss believes Sunday's 1-0 victory at MK Dons will give his team the belief they need to capture more crucial points on the road.
The Valiants are up to fourth in the table, but before their trip to Stadium MK they had relied on their home form as they earned 15 points in Burslem and just two on away grounds.
That changed on Sunday they defended determinedly and confidently after Alex Jones gave them the lead on 35 minutes. The victory was Vale's first away from home since a 2-0 victory at Gillingham in April.
