Manager Rob Page faces welcome selection dilemmas in both defence and attack as Vale travel to Peterborough this weekend.
AJ Leitch-Smith has recovered from injury and is fit for selection upfront but deputy Theo Robinson scored in his absence.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Jak Alnwick is back to full fitness but may struggle to dislodge the impressive Chris Neal.
In fact, Vale have selection issues across the team – Ryan Inniss is expected to start in defence ahead of Ryan McGivern while there are also options in central midfield and on the flanks.
It augers well for a game that midfielder Michael O’Connor has labelled as “massive.”
