Tom Pope injury is nothing major says Port Vale coach

Port Vale coach says an injury to top-scorer Tom Pope is “nothing major” after the striker was ruled out of the game with Mansfield Town.

However, player coach Danny Pugh told BBC Radio Stoke that the injury was “nothing major” and that the coaching staff were taking precautions to ensure the forward featured in the season run-in.

Pope, on 99 career Vale goals, is this season’s top scorer with eleven goals including eight in the League.

Pope was replaced by Ricky Miller in the Vale starting XI to face Mansfield.
