Chris Anderson remains firmly behind his players despite a lacklustre showing last weekend.
Vale went down 4-0 to league leaders BSC Glasgow, conceding two goals inside the first three minutes.
But the manager is steadfast in his belief that everyone at the club is devoted to the cause. He believes they will show that today and win a place in the last eight of the South Challenge Cup.
He said: “I would like to say that whilst last weeks performance wasn’t anywhere near the level we can reach, I would never question the effort or commitment of any player or staff member.
“We always give our best and the commitment the players show on a weekly basis is fantastic.
“No matter where you go supporters will always have a go when the team is getting beat but nobody wants to bring success to Vale of Leithen more than myself and my staff.”
There was controversy the last time Upper Annandale visited Innerleithen, with the referee ruling the pitch unplayable despite the protestations of both clubs.
“We welcome Upper Annandale to Victoria Park for the second time this season. Hopefully this time the game will go ahead.
