Remi Streete, as a defender, will always be pleased with a cleansheet so it’ll come as little surprise he was really pleased with the one secured by Port Vale against Carlisle in midweek.

Streete, of course signed on a permanent basis from Newcastle ahead of the season, came back into the side for this one-nil win against the League 2 side with Watford loanee Uche Ikpeazu scoring us the winner.

This appearance was his first since being part of the Valiants defence that secured a cleansheet and one-nil win against Burnley in the League Cup several weeks back.

Streete told the Official Website not only was he happy to be back in the side, and form part of a backline that kept a cleansheet, he hopes he’ll stay in Rob Page’s side for the meeting with Wigan in our next League 1 game.

‘That’s what everyone wants, to build on good performances. If you’ve had a bad game you want to pick yourself up the next game.

‘You need a run of games and I’m glad that I was back in the team tonight, I was happy with my performance and hopefully I can kick on against Wigan.’

Speaking of Page, he also spoke after that win at Vale Park.

The Vale boss got the better of his former Sheffield United teammate Keith Curle when the Valiants saw of Carlisle, with him admitting to the Official Website that Vale weren’t at their best.

However, not being at their best, and still winning, is something the boss feels is a positive thing, saying.

‘It wasn’t the standards of the level of performance that we’ve given in recent weeks.

‘But it’s a good sign that when you’re not playing at your best and you’re still winning games then we’ll take that.’

What is it they say? A sign of a good side is winning when you’re not at your best!
