The Sentinel newspaper reports that Port Vale will give another outing to trialist Rory McKeown.
The 25 year old former Raith Rovers and Southport defender played in both of the Valiants’ friendly games at Redditch United and Kidsgrove Athletic over the weekend.
Vale’s first choice left-back is Cristian Montano but the club will be keen on cover for the Colombian who missed part of last season through injury.
