Birchall injury blow

Chris Birchall has been ruled out of the Yeovil match after suffering a hamstring injury in the win at Oldham.

The Trinidad International was making a rare start for the Valiants before he was taken off to be replaced by Mickey Cummins.

Vale manger Martin Foyle commented to the Staffordshire Sentinel that: “Birchy is nowhere near right.

“He is very tight and very stiff – that’s why I am looking after him.”

The Vale manager also revealed that midfielder Sam Togwell may miss the Yeovil match. Foyle commented: “Sam might just have pulled his calf and he could be out as well. But that just gives somebody else a chance – I already have players coming and knocking on my door, which is nice.”||
