David Ball has hailed his Fleetwood team-mates after their 2-0 victory away at high-flying Port Vale.

The striker scored his seventh goal of the season, and Alan Goodall also was on target just before the break, as Town began 2013 with victory, and the result also propelled Graham Alexander’s side back in to the play-off places. The 23-year-old forward also applauded the effort that his team-mates put in to get the result, and went on to describe it as a ‘great team performance.’ “I thought we was magnificent.” Ball said, “we played really well and I got another goal, I feel like I am getting to where I want to be with my sharpness, and I am putting them in now as well. “I’m starting to really show what I am about now; I hope the people can see that, the fans and the manager what I am about, and I’m really enjoying myself. “Scotty (Scott Davies) deserves a lot of credit as well; he has kept us in the game - particulalry with his penalty save.  The defence defended brilliantly as well. Goody’s (Alan Goodall) got another goal; the midfield was fantastic and really worked hard, and me and Titch (Alex Titchiner) obviously worked well as a pair up top. It was a great team performance.” Ball has been deployed with a new strike partner in the past two fixtures. 21-year-old Alex Titchiner has impressed since he has been thrown into the first team fold, and Ball is enjoying working with his new partner. “We played a bit closer today which was good; we managed to work off each other’s movement and caused them loads of problems.” David Ball has hailed his Fleetwood team-mates after their 2-0 victory away at high-flying Port Vale.
