Match Preview

Chilvers back for much-changed Vale Liam Chilvers comes back into the reckoning for Port Vale ahead of the visit of Torquay. Chilvers was ineligible under the terms of his loan from Notts County as Vale crashed out of the FA Cup to non-league Grimsby in a first-round replay on Tuesday night. Chilvers is not the only defender added to Micky Adams` squad after the Vale boss signed Shane O`Connor on loan from Ipswich. The Republic of Ireland Under-19 international will remain until January 3, 2012 and may make his debut on Friday evening. As could winger Jennison Myrie-Williams and striker Guy Madjo, who will also remain at Vale Park until the new year after arriving on loan from Stevenage. It remains to be seen whether Lee Collins will recover from the dead leg that ruled him out against the Mariners, but fellow defender Gareth Owen (Achilles), midfielder Doug Loft (knee) and striker Marc Richards (ankle) definitely remain out. Vale have not scored in 388 minutes of football in all competitions since Richards netted in the 2-1 league defeat at Oxford on October 29. Torquay will be without the injured Brian Saah for the trip. Defender Saah limped off during the 3-1 victory over Plymouth last weekend and a scan on Wednesday revealed the defender had torn his groin, ruling him out for between four and six weeks. The Gulls will also be missing influential midfielder Eunan O'Kane, scorer of two wonder goals in the win against the Pilgrims, as he is serving a one-match ban having accumulated five bookings over the course of the season. Otherwise, manager Martin Ling has no new injury worries as he looks to lead his side to their sixth consecutive win in all competitions. Centre-back Tom Aldred has been drafted in on loan from Colchester until January 2 and will go straight into the squad for the clash at Vale Park.

Match Report

Gulls held in Vale stalemate Battling Port Vale ended Torquay's five-match winning run as they recorded a goalless draw to regain some pride after Tuesday's ignominious FA Cup exit at Grimsby Town. New loan signing Jennison Myrie-Williams made a lively start for Vale, but it was the in-form visitors who asked most of the early questions. Billy Bodin was wriggling his way past Vale defenders with ease and a couple of his deliveries into the danger area caused problems. But Vale stuck gamely to the task and almost took the lead five minutes before the break when Tom Pope's 10-yard volley was brilliantly saved by Robert Olejnik. Micky Adams' men also started the second period on the front foot as they snapped into every challenge to force the Gulls to defend in depth. And Pope came close to opening the scoring in the 66th minute when he steered his header from Myrie-Williams' cross narrowly wide of the target. Vale substitute Sean Rigg thought he had won it seven minutes from time when his volley flew past Olejnik but was headed off the line by Kevin Nicholson.
