Port Vale manager Neil Aspin has revealed that Sam Hornby has been recalled from loan due to Rob Lainton picking up an injury.
Hornby was recalled early from a loan spell with Chester after injury-plagued Lainton picked up a hip injury. Without Horby’s recall Vale would have been left with just Ryan Boot and Joe Slinn as keeping cover.
There have been a lot of decisions that have been made which have caused problems from the start of the season, of which that is one…
Aspin told the Sentinel: “The problem is that Rob Lainton didn’t play in the reserves last week because he had a problem with his hip. He wanted to play in the reserves tomorrow, but the physio informed me today that he needs to go for a scan on his hip.
“So, if he is going to be on the bench he needs to be fully fit, which he isn’t. So, we need to recall Sam and put him on the bench and let him play in the reserves. That’s what we have decided to do.
“The goalkeeping situation has been a problem all season, there is no getting away from the fact.
“There have been a lot of decisions that have been made which have caused problems from the start of the season, of which that is one.”
