Port Vale caretaker manager Danny Pugh has brought this week’s signings Jake Taylor and Kurtis Guthrie into the squad for the away trip to Forest Green Rovers.
Taylor starts the game while Guthrie is named on the bench.
The Valiants are missing a number of injured senior players including striker Tom Pope, Cristian Montano, David Worrall and midfielder Danny Whitehead. Manny Oyeleke and James Gibbons are also not judged to be match fit either. It means youngsters Ryan Campbell-Gordon and Eden Bailey are on the bench.
Striker Theo Robinson is not included after joining Harry McKirdy in being deregistered from the matchday squad by the club.
