Brightwell praises stubborn Vale

18 January 2009 12:42
Both sides were reduced to 10 men - Kyle Perry seeing red for Vale and Marc Pugh for Shrews - in a game which saw Richard Walker cancel out Steven Thompson's thunderous early opener

Brightwell insists he did not see the Perry incident and would have to view DVD evidence before commenting, but he was delighted with his team's performance.

He said: "Kyle has told us his side of the story and we will have to have a look at it.

"It's a shame to talk about a sending off again because the lads were different class out there. They battled tremendously hard for each other.

"We told them at half-time they would all have to dig deep and they certainly did that."
