Loan signing Matthew Kennedy says he wasn’t surprised that Sam Kelly produced a special strike on Sunday.
Kelly’s late goal earned Vale a point against Coventry City and Kennedy, who played alongside Kelly at Everton, told the official Port Vale website: “I was with Sam at Everton and he showed the ability there as well and he’s capable of doing that week-in, week-out.
“It’s probably goal of the season but he’s deserved it.”
However, Ryan Inniss is set to be missing a portion of the season after suffering a hamstring injury during the Coventry game.
Ryan McGivern will be expected to start in Inniss’ absence.
