The View From The Opposition: Port Vale

ROCHDALE became the first team to win at The Den in 13 home league games on Saturday, as Ian Henderson's stoppage-time winner ensured a 3-2 victory.

This Tuesday, the Lions have a chance to get back to winning ways again, as they head to Port Vale. Phil Sherwin provides The View From The Opposition.

Twitter: Not on it – too much hassle!

What made you become a Port Vale fan?: I was interested in football from a young age – and Vale happened to be a 10-minute walk away!

With nine games gone, Vale sit in the top six, having won every home game so far this season – is that above expectations?: Way above. With all the changes, a new overseas manager (former Leeds United and Sheffield United midfielder Bruno Ribeiro) and 17 new players, I expected mid table.

Millwall, meanwhile, are in 14th place in the table and winless in four games – how do you see the Lions faring this season?: After last season, I thought they would be up there. They were excellent at Vale Park last season (when Neil Harris' side won 2-1). Maybe the play-off defeat is taking time to wear off. I still think they will make the top six.

Which Port Vale players do you think will pose the most threat to Millwall on Tuesday night? On the other side, which Lions do you feel your team will have to watch out for?: Winger Jerome Thomas is a danger, as is striker Alex Jones – he has five goals so far. As for Lions players, the usual ones – Lee Gregory and Steve Morison.

Finally, a score prediction?: Probably Port Vale 1-1 Millwall – we surely can't keep winning at home!
