Port Vale will be missing influential midfielder Anthony Grant after he picked up his tenth booking of the season at Coventry.
Manager Rob Page commented: “When he is on form like he was today, there is nobody better. So, of course he is going to be a miss. But as I have always said, it opens the door for someone else to come in and gives them an opportunity to go and stake their claim for the jersey.
“That’s how we have to be with it. We can’t change it. It is disappointing to lose him because I thought he was excellent again today. But we can’t grumble about it, we have to get on with it.”
