Vale await news of Loft injury

The Valiants will be waiting to hear an assessment of skipper Doug Loft’s calf injury after the captain was replaced with 50 minutes of the game against Exeter played.

Loft has been a key performer in both the left-back and midfield positions.

With Vale unable to sign new players plus Rob Taylor still easing himself back to full fitness, any prolonged Loft absence would leave the Vale particularly short of cover in the left-back position.

Vale are better served in central midfield with Sam Morsy, Ryan Burge, Chris Shuker, Darren Murphy and the so far unused Kingsley James all able to play there.
