Sam Hart and Kjell Knops will join Anthony Grant on the sidelines for Port Vale’s crucial FA Cup game against Hartlepool United.
After the side’s poor form, the cup clash on Sunday takes on added importance with Vale desperate to win and potentially draw a big name club in the third round.
However, the team’s cause will not be helped by the news that left-sided players Sam Hart and Kjell Knops both picked up their fifth booking of the season and will be suspended for the FA Cup second round tie.
Fortunately, Vale also have Kiko who can play at left-back and the Portuguese signing is expected to line-up on the left of the defence.
Vale could also be missing Anton Forrester, Jerome Thomas, Sam Foley and Martin Paterson through injury.
Do you think Vale can overcome their injury woes and defeat Hartlepool. Why not take advantage of Ladbrokes’ steady old free bet and back your hunch?
