CHRIS BRANDON hopes to remind Port Vale of the best goal of his life at Vale Park tomorrow (3.00).
The 28-year-old midfield player is remembered by Vale fans for a spectacular scissor-kick volley against them two years ago.
That was in Chesterfield colours and, having also scored against Vale in the LDV Vans Trophy that same season, he is hoping to keep his happy record going against the Burslem club tomorrow.
"I've netted a couple against Vale already and a hat trick would be nice," said Brandon, who will again partner Danny Schofield in an unchanged line-up.
"The League goal I scored against them was the best goal of my life and I'll probably never score a better one.
"It was from a late run into the box and when the ball came in I met it perfectly to send an overhead kick into the top corner.
"It's one of those things you always practice in training and it never comes off, but just for once it did and even the Vale fans were applauding.
"They kept showing it for quite a few weeks on Soccer A.M as their best goal of the season and, like I've said, I don't think I'll get a better one."
Coincidentally, Rob Edwards was on the scoresheet that same day for Chesterfield, just like he was against Hull last Sunday.
Brandon reckons Town - who have striker Akpo Sodje in their squad for the first time - are primed to wreck Vale's 100% home record and push for the play-off placings themselves, despite the fact Town have won only twice at Vale Park in 16 visits over the last 30 years.
"The win against Hull has filled the lads full of confidence and we just need to carry on tomorrow where we left off against Hull, which was impressively," he added.
"Vale are a big and well-organised side, but if we play like we can then we should do well down there."
On his scoring exploits, Brandon added: "Every player wants to get off the mark for a new club and I've been no different.
"Now that I've scored one for Town, I obviously want to score as many as I can. The main thing tomorrow, though, is that we come back with three points."
