Kelly’s special strike praised but Vale suffer Inniss injury blow

Loan signing Matthew Kennedy says he wasn’t surprised that Sam Kelly produced a special strike on Sunday.

Kelly’s late goal earned Vale a point against Coventry City and Kennedy, who played alongside Kelly at Everton, told the official Port Vale website: “I was with Sam at Everton and he showed the ability there as well and he’s capable of doing that week-in, week-out.

“It’s probably goal of the season but he’s deserved it.”

However, Ryan Inniss is set to be missing a portion of the season after suffering a hamstring injury during the Coventry game.

Ryan McGivern will be expected to start in Inniss’ absence.
