Geohaghon set for Vale bow
Exodus Geohaghon is in line for his Port Vale debut as the out-of-sorts Burslem outfit look to get their promotion charge back on track at home to Barnet.
Geohaghon completed a season-long loan from Peterborough on Monday morning and is likely to move straight into the heart of defence with Gareth Owen serving a one-match ban for his dismissal against Cheltenham on Saturday.
Skipper Owen saw red for pulling back Robins striker Wes Thomas and joins suspended midfielder Gareth Roberts in the stands as he sits out the second game of his two-match ban for accruing 10 bookings this term.
Winger Rob Taylor will be assessed but should be okay having been replaced 14 minutes from time at the weekend nursing tight calves and a bit of cramp.
Forward Sean Rigg will also be monitored having missed out altogether with a thigh problem, while Marc Richards (thigh) and Doug Loft (calf) continue to miss out.
Louis Dodds and Sam Morsy recovered from slight injuries to take their places on the bench against Cheltenham, while there were debuts for loan duo Romaine Sawyers and Kayleden Brown.
Barnet are set to be unchanged.
The Bees are still without striker Steve Kabba, who is probably another week away from returning after a knee injury, and broken metatarsal-victim Ricky Holmes.
Izale McLeod, the goalscorer in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Macclesfield, will therefore start up front on his own again.
Defenders Daniel Leach and Darren Dennehy remain sidelined with foot injuries so Joe Devera and Anwar Uddin will continue their makeshift central-defensive partnership.
Tommy Fraser makes a swift return to his former club having been released by Vale last week prior to joining Barnet.
The midfielder put in an impressive display on his debut at Moss Rose and will keep his place.
Bees extend run to four games
Improving Barnet stretched their unbeaten run to four games as early-season leaders Port Vale again failed to inspire under new manager Jim Gannon in a goalless draw.
Barnet had appeared content to sit behind the ball in the first period, with Izale McLeod an isolated and frustrated figure in attack.
Vale attempted to increase the tempo at the start of the second half as their fans finally started to get behind their cause.
However, it was Barnet who finally landed the game's first attempt on target when McLeod's tame shot was easily collected by home goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson in the 64th minute.
Vale wasted their second gilt-edged opportunity four minutes later as substitute Kayleden Brown lost his footing after Lewis Haldane's shot was parried into his path by Liam O'Brien.
And an even easier chance went begging in the final minute when Rob Taylor scooped his shot high into the air from virtually on the goal-line.
