Match Preview

Bird back for Robins Mark Yates has received mixed injury news as he prepares his Cheltenham side for the visit of stuttering Port Vale. Skipper Michael Pook was this week told he is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines due to the calf injury he picked up in the first half of last Saturday`s 3-1 defeat at Bradford. However David Bird returns from a hamstring lay-off and will be included in Yates` matchday 18, although whether he starts remains to be seen. Fellow midfielders Frankie Artus (cracked fibula) and JJ Melligan also played 60 minutes for the reserves in midweek and are in contention to start having both began proceedings on the bench at Valley Parade. Defender Martin Riley (hamstring) is back in training but unlikely to figure against a Vale outfit winless in four, while top scorer Wes Thomas (thigh) continues to make good progress but remains a fortnight or so away from his comeback. Vale striker Justin Richards returns to Whaddon Road to face his former employers, whom he helped save from relegation last term with 15 crucial goals, although he has not found the net in his last eight games. Micky Adams is faced with plenty of selection decisions as he looks to rectify a "crisis of confidence" within his Vale players. The Valiants boss made three changes for last weekend`s goalless draw at home to Gillingham but saw little sign of change as the Burslem outfit extended their winless run to three league games and duly lost top spot in the table. Debutant centre-back Ritchie Sutton, left midfielder Rob Taylor and right midfielder Tommy Fraser came in for John McCombe, Sean Rigg and Jemal Johnson respectively, and Adams must decide whether to stick or twist. But his options have not been helped by Johnson`s loan recall by parent club MK Dons and a hamstring tear which will keep Taylor on the sidelines for between six to eight weeks. Lewis Haldane (leg) continues to miss out. Striker Justin Richards returns to Whaddon Road to face his former employers, whom he helped save from relegation last term with 15 crucial goals.

Match Report

Wasteful Vale held by Robins Port Vale wasted several chances as they were held to a goalless draw at Cheltenham. Cheltenham had a penalty shout turned down in the eighth minute when Jeff Goulding appeared to be held back by Gareth Owen and Steve Elliott headed wide from a corner in the 10th minute as the hosts started brightly. Home keeper Scott Brown tipped over from Vale's John McCombe and Anthony Griffith shot wide for the visitors, who should have taken the lead in the 20th minute when Justin Richards beat the offside trap only to be denied by Brown's legs. Gary Roberts went close for Vale and a Marc Richards ball in deflected off Cheltenham's Andy Gallinagh on to his own post. It was more of the same in the second half with Justin Richards firing wide in the 47th minute before Marc Richards dragged a shot badly wide six minutes later. Roberts and Justin Richards, again, missed further chances as Vale were frustrated.
