Midfielder Ryan Burge could be back in action as early as next week after he had a scan on his knee injury.
Burge was carried off during Vale’s win over Oxford and underwent a scan on an injured knee.
The 24 year-old tweeted: “Gd news on the scan, not done anything major so should b back sometime next week when it’s settled down, can’t say when but it’s looking good…”
Burge has impressed this season after missing nearly the whole of last season through injury.
The Cheltenham-born player has made six starts plus nine sub appearances and scored his first senior Vale goal in the JPT game against Walsall.
