Assistant manager Mark Grew sees Port Vale's top-of-the-table home defeat to Gillingham as nothing but a blip.

Vale lost the clash at Vale Park on Saturday 2-0 but remain second in the League Two standings behind the unbeaten Gills.

Grew told the club's official website: "We are disappointed with Saturday's result but we have got to put it right this week. We have got to work hard on things we didn't do well on Saturday.

"We've gone through the DVD with them this morning and there are quite a few things. The goals we conceded were 'everything we told the lads were going to happen'. We watched the DVDs of Gillingham's last two matches and warned the players what to expect and that is the frustrating thing, when you have told them and then they concede like that. It's a bit annoying to say the least.

"We had chances to get back into it, but unfortunately the luck wasn't with us. Overall I think they probably deserved the win.

"You know sooner or later something is going to happen. It's unfortunate it happened on Saturday in front of a good crowd, but we're still second in the league. It's a blip, but not a crisis."
