Striker Ben Williamson has boosted his chances of a first-team recall after he scored the winning goal for a strong Port Vale reserves side.
Vale reserves defeated Shrewsbury Town reserves 1-0 at the Greenhous Meadow on Tuesday afternoon with Williamson scoring the winner.
First-team hopefuls Williamson, Chris Birchall, Chris Shuker, Ryan Lloyd, Louis Dodds and Kaid Mohammed all played in the win.
Manager Micky Adams was monitoring the action after suggesting he would make changes following Vale’s poor defeat to Colchester United at the weekend.
Vale reserves: Johnson, Alexander, Jefford, Lloyd, Price, Morris, Shuker, Birchall, Williamson, Dodds, Mohammed.
Subs: Boot, Carvalho, Hugill, Tambini, Bell
