Port Vale make two changes for visit to Forest Green Rovers

Port Vale have brought striker Tom Pope and winger Rhys Browne back into their starting eleven for the clash against Forest Green Rovers.

With James Gibbons suspended, Mitch Clark will revert to right-back with Cristian Montano coming at left-back. Richie Bennett drops to the bench and replaced by Pope while the injured David Amoo fails to make the squad so Vale bring in Browne on the flank.

A very strong Port Vale bench includes Bennett, Oyeleke, Smith and Cullen.

It looks likely that Tom Pope will partner Richie Bennett upfront if Vale switch to a 4-4-2 formation.

Port Vale XI

Our predicted line-up for the game is:


Clark – Legge – Brisley – Montano


Conlon – Burgess

Browne – Pope – Worrall

Subs: Maddison, Cullen, Oyeleke, Atkinson, Smith, Evans, Bennett

Home side Forest Green Rovers make three changes to the side which lost at home to Walsall. A change of formation sees Matt Stevens partner Josh Marsh upfront. In midfield Elliott Frear starts.
