Interim manager Michael Brown has confirmed that defender Remie Streete will be missing for four to six weeks of the season.
Streete was taken off during the loss to Millwall in midweek amid fears that he had fractured his leg.
A tweet from Port Vale confirmed that:

The news is a big blow for the Valiants with Streete one of the side’s star performers and Vale short of cover in the centre-half positions.
