Pre-Season Preview: Port Vale (A)

14 August 2020

The Seasiders travel to Vale Park on Saturday to take on League Two side Port Vale in the second match of pre-season.

Neil Critchley’s side travel to Stoke-on-Trent on the back of a 4-0 victory at Southport last weekend, and will be hopeful of continuing the good start to the pre-season campaign. Goals from Grant Ward, Keshi Anderson, Sullay Kaikai and Jerry Yates secured the victory at the Pure Stadium.

Saturday’s match is the start of an intense fortnight of pre-season fixtures for the Seasiders, with matches against Barrow, Everton, Blackburn Rovers and Oldham Athletic on the horizon in the coming weeks.

As with all the pre-season matches, Saturday’s game is behind closed doors, and supporters are asked not to travel to Vale Park.
