Port Vale boss Lee Sinnott has called for patience after his side's inconsistent start to the season continued with a home defeat to Bradford City at the weekend.
Sinnott was at the helm as the Valiants were relegated to League Two last season and the new campaign has got off to an uncertain start.
But speaking after Saturday's second home defeat of the season, Sinnott has called for patience from supporters.
"We are aware of where we need to improve. But it is important you don't make a mountain out of a molehill," he told the club's official website.
"You would think Bradford were totally dominant, but if you study the DVD you would have a re-think on that one.
"We want to improve and we want to be successful, but we need to learn our lessons.
"They are a good bunch of lads and you can't accuse this squad of players of not wanting to be successful for Port Vale."
