Jerome Thomas could return for Hartlepool cup tie

Manager Bruno Ribeiro thinks there is an outside chance that winger Jerome Thomas could be fit for the FA Cup tie with Hartlepool United.

A cup victory is of vital importance to the club with Vale’s league form faltering over recent weeks and the return of the veteran winger would be a huge boost.

Thomas has been hugely impressive since joining the Valiants in the summer and arguably Vale’s recent poor showings have been at least partially down to the winger being absent.

However, other injured players such as Martin Paterson, Anton Forrester and Ben Purkiss are likely to miss out on Sunday.
