Santos boost but duo are doubtful for Peterborough game

Port Vale have been boosted by the news that goalkeeper Miguel Santos is eligible to be named in their matchday squad.

Santos has been waiting for International clearance which has finally been granted. He is expected to be named on the bench as back-up to Jak Alnwick.

However, Vale could be missing injured duo Anthony Defreitas and Anton Forrester who were both injured during the defeat to Bury. Both players suffered muscle injuries.

The injury news is a blow for Vale who must be looking to address their away performances this season as an urgent priority.

If the Valiants are to scale the League One ladder and remain in the promotion spots, then Vale need to arrest their recent poor away form that has seen them lose three of this season’s four away fixtures
