Roberts returns for Vale

24 September 2010 01:00
Port Vale welcome back midfielder Gary Roberts for their home clash against Accrington. Roberts missed last weekend's impressive 3-0 victory at Macclesfield due to a one-match suspension and comes back into the fold, although whether manager Micky Adams opts to change a winning formula remains to be seen. Captain Tommy Fraser switched from the right-hand side of midfield into the middle to fill Roberts' void, while Louis Dodds was brought in out wide. Doug Loft returned to the bench at Moss Rose after recovering from cracked ribs and a collapsed lung and he will be hoping for some game time, along with on-loan winger Jemal Johnson. Long-term absentee Lewis Haldane is back in full-training and looking likely for a return to reserve-team action in mid-October.
