Vale Will Be No Stroll

Vale Will Be No Stroll

Wednesday travel to Port Vale in the Carling Cup as firm favourites tonight, but my guess is that it won't be a simple walk in the park to progress to the next round.

Of course, Brian Laws and his troops will be fully aware what the League Two side can do after knocking out rivals from S2 out of the competition in the last round.

But, in a competition where both Laws and the Wednesdayites want to do well in this season, another cup shock for Vale tonight won't be impossible...far from it.

In Micky Adams, Vale don't just have a manager who's picked up his fair share of cup shocks in the past, but they also have a man who'd just love to get one over Wednesday.

Adams is a Blade, afterall.

I remember the clash in the same competition against a Leicester City side bossed by Adams not so long ago at Hillsborough, a match which saw the Foxes progress.

It got slightly heated between the home fans and Adams that day, and I've always had the feeling that the Sheffield-born boss just loves getting one over on us.

Although not making for superstars on the pitch, his desire to beat the Owls will no doubt rub off on his men, as well as the channe to go on and come up against a Premier League club in the next round - bagging his club valuable cash.

And desire, and the ability to get teams 'up for it' in one of the less favourable competitions in country will go a long way in this season's competition - it always does.

Expect a tough match at Vale Park tonight, but hopefully a match that will see the Owls come through with flying colours...
