Football - Adams relishing Argyle test

Port Vale boss Micky Adams believes Sunday's FA Cup third-round tie between two sides unbeaten in four will be an entertaining one.

League Two Plymouth head to Vale Park looking to cause an upset and build on a morale-boosting derby win over Torquay on Wednesday.

And Adams believes both teams will look to play on the front foot and is predicting an exciting spectacle.

"Plymouth will come into the game full of confidence," he told the club's official website. "I am hoping it is going to be a cracking cup tie with both teams going for it, you never know.

"I wouldn't see Plymouth coming and sitting behind the ball, I think they will have a go and if they do that I am sure it will be an entertaining game.

"We don't take them lightly; we always make sure that we are ready for the opposition, whatever it presents and we will be ready for the game, but we know the importance of it, that's for sure."

Adams is likely to be without Chris Lines as he continues to suffer with a cracked rib however fellow midfielder Anthony Griffith is available again after serving a one-game suspension and he is likely to return to the starting line-up.

Veteran striker Lee Hughes left Vale on Friday to join Skrill Premier club Forest Green on an 18-month deal after 14 goals in 34 matches for Vale.
