Port Vale boss Micky Adams was quick to brush off the disappointment of missing out on signing Lee Hughes after watching his side sweep past Aldershot 3-1 to complete a perfect week for the club.
Vale celebrated coming out of administration with a thumping win over Bristol Rovers on Tuesday and they went six games unbeaten with a comfortable victory over the struggling Shots.
Ben Williamson put Vale ahead and while Dani Lopez headed the hosts level, Ryan Burge restored the visitors' advantage soon after the break before a Jennison Myrie-Williams penalty settle matters.
And Adams believes his side showed they are not short in the striking department after missing out on Hughes by just minutes on Thursday's loan deadline day - with the Vale boss otherwise occupied.
"It's been a good week. I took my daughter (Stacey) up the aisle and we've come away with the win," he said. "I said in my speech she could have timed it a little better, deadline day, I can't be here there and everywhere but for once the family came first."
Adams added: "You've got to adapt to the conditions and I thought we did that. There wasn't a lot of great football from both sides but we showed a lot of endeavour and we've ground one out and that's the important thing."
Dean Holdsworth felt Aldershot were on the wrong end of some refereeing decisions but he could still take positives from his side's performance in defeat.
"I think we can come away with a lot of positive things," said the Shots boss. "In the first half I thought we were fantastic. We came up against a very clinical side in Port Vale, who are a danger, but we matched them in the first half.
"We're happy with the team, they have strong character but I think there were some key moments in the game which went against us.
"Danny (Hylton) has said the goalkeeper (Chris Neal) has pushed him in the area and you can't raise your hands. But the referee hasn't seen it and we have to get on with it. It's those kinds of decisions which are going against us at the moment."
