    My throat is still sore now. Been a long time since I shouted like that. Fantastic night

    Hi folks, Port Vale fan here. Great result by you lot on Tuesday - got quite excited following it on Twitter! And extra huge respect to those of you who made it down there.
    Am I right in thinking your ground is virtually all standing? And are there any club facilities we will be able to use before kick off. Thanks in advance for any info.

    There is some seating and it think that you will need to reserve them (keep look out on here and the PV site for more info, as there is a meeting tonight to discuss this and other issue's about the game. There is also a bar and catering facilities, how that will be divided I am not sure, as normally it is open to all fans (it was for the Aldershot game) but the FA may have other criteria planned. I hope not as we are a very friendly club and the Aldershot fans enjoyed the freedom that was offered to them, shame it was not the same in the replay!.
    Hope that helps, but keep checking this website and PV's.

    Were all the seats filled for the Aldershot game? I've been to Aldershot many times - the hospitality there has always been a smelly burger bar and some portaloos! Thanks for replying.

    Hi JJ
    Yes and it will also be all ticket the round as I think the limit is 1500 fans

    I do hope that the loyal supporters get tickets and not just those jumping on the FA wagon
