Port Vale manager Micky Adams feeling promotion buzz

Port Vale manager Micky Adams
Micky Adams' side have gone six matches undefeated in League Two

Port Vale boss Micky Adams insists the club has the potential to be successful but warned they are not the finished article yet.

Vale have gone six games unbeaten in League Two - a run which has seen them climb to within five points of the play-off places.

"We're generating something here," Adams told BBC Radio Stoke.

"We're not there yet, but there's plenty of potential at the club. That's why I came here in the first place."

Adams, who won promotion as manager of Fulham, Brighton and Hove Albion and Leicester City, added: "The more success you get, the more people come out of their shell.

"To be successful at any club, you've got to have everyone pulling in the right direction. That's why managers come and go at football clubs.

"When they're losing games because they're not giving the manager the support that he needs and deserves.

"I've done nothing yet. If I've given a little bit of belief to some of the supporters, then I'm doing my job.

"The most important thing, from my point of view, is that the players have that belief. It's not about managers, it's all about players."
