Post-Port Vale | Marko Marosi

9 March 2024

Goalkeeper Marko Marosi chatted to the media after his impressive display at Port Vale helped us claim a crucial three points in Staffordshire.

Goals from Dan Udoh and Tom Bloxham inspired Town to a 2-1 win over Darren Moore's side.

But while Dan and Tom impressed at one end, Marko also shone at the other with the shot-stopper making three excellent saves.

Speaking to the assembled media, the goalkeeper spoke about the game and his impressive display.

And Marko also discussed his recent injury that kept him out of the games against Lincoln and Blackpool.

On the importance of the win:

"It is a really good feeling. It was a very, very, important win and a massive three points for us.

"The lads put in a big shift. It's a big pitch here but the lads were great, some great blocks, some big headers.

"I had to pull off some decent saves so it was a really, really, good result in the end."

On his saves:

"I'm always happy to help the team. But they were just as good in front of me. They put their bodies on the line.

"But I am happy to contribute.

"I don't have a favourite save - they were all important."

On Dan and Tom's goals:

"Lovely. The first goal was a good set-piece. It was great communication between Udoh and Dunks (Chey Dunkley) because I thought Dunks was going to get his head on it so he must have got a shout from Dan.

"It was a great finish.

"The second one, I didn't know who scored - I was too busy celebrating. But they were both good goals.

"They put us under a little bit more pressure in the second half. It's always difficult when they get one back and are full-out attack.

"This game was really, really, important for them as well so they threw everything at us.

"They ended up getting one goal and then it's all about composure. 

"And when it gets to a certain time try and kill the game off, slow it down.

"They kept attacking us but we dealt with everything pretty well.

"Their goal happened. But it does happen. I felt we dealt with them pretty well."

On the away fans:

"They were amazing - especially in the first half because I was standing right in front of them.

"I couldn't even talk to my centre-backs because they couldn't hear me, it was a great noise. Top-notch."

On his fitness:

"I am feeling much, much, better. It was a bit of a freakish niggle, something to do with the nerve. The nerve was pinching my muscles where my muscles were really tight.

"It's been a while. I was limited in some of the games I've played. I couldn't kick long because it was really painful.

"I had some painkillers but in the end, all it needed was some rest. 

"It was one of them freakish ones - there was no treatment for it. It just needed a rest. I got that rest and felt really good today."

On having not missed many games:

"It was really annoying. I hate watching the games from the stands. I just hate it. I'm sweating, shouting.

"It's not great watching!"

On the upcoming games against Exeter and Carlisle:

"There is always work to be done. There are always things to improve. We can always get better and we need to get better.

"But this result was massive for us and hopefully we can build on it.

"We just need to stay positive. Concentrate on ourselves, take things one game at a time and give it everything.

"That is what we need to do. Give it everything - every single player."
