Keeper Jak Alwick is back to full fitness and could be in contention to face his brother Ben on Saturday.
Alnwick has missed the Vale’s last four games with a stomach injury but is now back in contention for a first-team start. However, Chris Neal has done nothing wrong in Alnwick’s absence and manager Rob Page faces a welcome selection quandary.
Meanwhile, Jak’s brother Ben Alnwick has also had injury problems but could be fit to line-up for Peterborough United on Saturday afternoon.
If the two Alnwick brothers are both selected it will be the second time this season that they will have face each other.
In safe hands?
