Forgotten forward Forrester closing on first-team return

Forgotten forward Forrester closing on first-team return

Port Vale coach Mick Ede says he is happy with striker Anton Forrester’s progress after returning from injury.

Forrester is returning from a hamstring injury and followed up 45 minutes for the reserves last week with 80 minutes on Tuesday.

It was very pleasing, he created himself lots of opportunities and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet…

The former Blackburn Rovers man would be a welcome addition to Vale’s forward ranks if he can remain fit. Vale have lost loanee Rekeil Pyke who has returned to Huddersfield Town for treatment on an injury which leaves Vale with just three senior strikers in Tom Pope, Tyrone Barnett and rookie Dan Turner.

Ede told the Sentinel that: “We had a 60 to 70 minute mark for him [to play], but at half time we had a chat with him and he said he felt comfortable so we took it a little bit further today. So, that is more minutes for him.

“It was very pleasing, he created himself lots of opportunities and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet. But the important thing is that, in his couple of games back, he is already getting in those positions for goalscoring opportunities.”

Would a fully fit Forrester boost Vale’s chances of moving up the table and reaching mid-table safety? Why not check the latest live odds at https://www.10bet.co.uk/live-betting/ and you can even bet in play.
