In our final brief guide, we look at Port Vale’s final opponents of the 2014-15 season…
Manager: Rob Page
Last match: 2-1 vs Yeovil
Form guide: W-D-D-D-L
Manager: Graham Alexander
Last match: 0-1 vs Peterborough
Form guide: L-D-L-L-W
Rob Page: hoping to finish on a high
Louis Dodds and Michael O’Connor are fit and in contention but with Rob Page hinting that he could give opportunities to fringe players, the starting line-up is anyone’s guess. Squad players Colin Daniel, Achille Campion and Sam Johnson will be hopeful of starting places which a number of promising youngsters could make the bench.
Fleetwood’s only two injury absentees are striker Jamille Matt (leg) and full-back Danny Andrew (knee).
“There’s a hell of a lot to play for both individually and as a team. We want to win the game and give a good account of ourselves on the final day…”
– Rob Page
Last time we met
The Valiants lost 0-1 earlier in the season. Fleetwood’s winner came from a Stephen Dobbie penalty while Vale’s Jordan Slew was sent-off.
- Vale wins: 1
- Fleetwood wins: 2

Tom Pope: final game for the Valiants?
- This has the potential to be the final game for a number of players including Chris Robertson, Chris Birchall, Adam Yates, Ben Williamson and notably Tom Pope.
- The club will be unveiling their new home kit for the 2015-16 season during this game.
They played for both…
There are only three players that we know of who have played for both clubs. They are:
- Self-proclaimed “best player at the club” Paul Edwards (right)
- Midfielder Scott Brown
- Midfielder Phil Charnock
