Davis: Eyes extended run for Vale

Port Vale defender Joe Davis is hoping to make the most of his opportunity against Forest Green in the FA Cup at the weekend.

The 18-year-old is expected to be handed a start in Vale's rearguard for the trip to the New Lawn as regular centre-backs John McCombe and Gareth Owen are unavailable.

"I am really looking forward to the challenge," Davis told the club's official website.

"If I do well on Saturday, then hopefully I can keep my place on Tuesday. I just want to stay in the side for as long as I can, that's my main target at the minute.

"I would have liked to have been involved more at the start of the season, but I am getting back into it now.

"I want to establish myself and play week in, week out for a couple of seasons and see how I do. It would be nice to see how I do over a longer period of time, rather than just every now and again."
