Goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov has been named in Port Vale’s reserve line-up to face York City on Tuesday afternoon but there is no place for Ryan Boot.
It could be that manager Neil Aspin wishes to give Evtimov more game time but his appearance in the reserves could also possibly be an indication that Ryan Boot is set to get the nod for the FA Cup game against Oxford United on Friday night.
Evtimov had a nervy debut against Swindon Town and with Sam Hornby and Rob Lainton both injured, Boot is a possible alternative for the cup game.
Vale reserves lined up as:
Evitmov, Yates (C), Walford, Calveley, Reeves, Dennis, Stobbs, Middleton, Forrester, Turner, Defreitas.
Subs: Blight, Wilson, Johnson, Beeston, Wakefield
