Match Preview

Brewers waiting on Taylor Burton boss Paul Peschisolido could name an unchanged side against Staffordshire neighbours Port Vale, if Cleveland Taylor recovers from a knock. The midfielder was forced off midway through the second half of the 1-1 home draw against Shrewsbury on Saturday, when Tom Parkes returned to the Albion defence after suspension in place of the injured Nathan Stanton. Should Taylor not be fit, his replacement against the Shrews, John McGrath could return to the starting line-up for the first time since the opening day of the season. Aaron Webster shook off a calf strain to start at the weekend and suffered no ill-effects. It remains to be seen whether centre-half Stanton will return to the squad following his knock. Marc Richards and Mike Green remain injury doubts for Port Vale. Both players have been nursing ankle problems. Striker Richards has not played since the opening day of the season against Crawley, while left-back Green missed Vale's first victory of the campaign at Barnet on Saturday. Following an impressive performance at Underhill, where centre-back Gareth Owen made his first appearance of the season after recovering from an Achilles injury, Richards and Green may struggle to get back into the starting XI should they prove their fitness. Not for the first time during his two spells at the club, manager Micky Adams reverted from a 4-4-2 formation to selecting three centre-halves against Barnet. His interchangeable 3-5-2/3-4-3 wing-back system did the trick in ironing out the defensive deficiencies which saw Vale concede six goals in their first two games this season, and Adams may stick with it at the Pirelli Stadium.

Match Report

Vale and Albion share spoils Port Vale kept up their promising start under returning boss Micky Adams with a point from a 1-1 draw at Staffordshire neighbours Burton. It could have been all three on the road for the second time in four days but substitute Rob Taylor was unable to convert a late chance. Aaron Webster put Burton ahead in the 23rd minute when he timed his run at the back post to head in a Chris Palmer corner kick. A full-length save by Stuart Tomlinson denied Calvin Zola a second goal for the hosts in the 40th minute - and within seconds Vale were back on level terms. Doug Loft found himself on the end of a swift breakaway attack and punished Burton's loose defending with a low shot from 20 yards. Tom Pope had a chance to put the visitors in front in the 52nd minute but Ross Atkins came to Burton's rescue with a fine reaction save. Jacques Maghoma twice went close for the home side, but Vale finished the stronger side only for Taylor to fluff his chance in the 81st minute.
