Team News: Alnwick out, Inniss in the squad

Manager Rob Page has confirmed that Chris Neal will be in goal for Vale’s game against Oldham Athletic.

Neal has come into the side since Jak Alnwick suffered a stomach injury and Page told the media that Alnwick has not recovered sufficiently to be in contention for Tuesday’s game.

However, Page suggested that fit-again defender Ryan Inniss may be in contention. He told the media: “He is in the squad, 100%. He typifies what I am all about as a manager, with his work rate and ethic, as many others do on the pitch.

“So, you want people like that with that positive influence in and around the changing room. There is competition for places which means the lads playing can’t sit back and relax. They know they have someone like Ryan ready to come back into the fold, and Remie Streete as well.”
