Port Vale duo set to return for Southend game

Bruno Ribeiro is set to recall Remie Streete and Rigino Cicilia to his starting eleven for the home game against Southend United.

Both players missed the disappointing League Cup defeat to Carlisle and Ribeiro has revealed that both were rested due to slight injuries.

If Streete and Cicilia are fit then Vale could resort to a similar starting XI to that which faced Bradford City last Saturday which would also mean recalls for Jerome Thomas and Paulo Tavares.

If that is the case – Calvin Mac-Intosch, Chris Mbamba, Sam Kelly and Anton Forrester (who all started against Carlisle) would drop out of the starting XI.
