Anyon issues Vale rallying cry

Joe Anyon
Anyon has kept just two clean sheets this season

Port Vale goalkeeper Joe Anyon has urged his team-mates to improve in the second half of the season and mount a challenge for the League Two play-offs.

Vale, who were relegated from League One last season, currently lie 12 points off the play-off pacesetters.

Anyon told BBC Radio Stoke: "We have to push on. If we win the next four or five games then we're back in it.

"People have told me that Port Vale are the biggest club in League Two and they're right, we are."

And the 22-year-old, who has made 96 appearances for the Valiants since joining the club as a trainee, said the squad cannot be distracted by rumours linking players with a move to Vale Park in the January transfer window.

"As a player you've got to ignore the rumours and get on with the job in hand," said Anyon.

"Money is tight and there are a lot of clubs in a similar financial position to us.

"We were unlucky to miss out on signing Gareth Owen, but we have signed Scott Brown and he's a very good player."
