Haldane set to make Vale debut

Haldane completed a one-month loan switch from Bristol Rovers on Tuesday having trained with the Valiants for the past week and he will be looking to secure a starting berth on either flank or in a more attacking role. Full-back Kris Taylor is likely to return following a thigh strain although midfielder Claus Jorgensen, who was on non-contract terms, has now left the club having rejected a deal put on the table. Striker James Lawrie will also miss out as he recovers from an operation to remove his appendix while Joe Anyon has stepped up his rehabilitation from the fractured tibia he sustained back in March. The goalkeeper, 22, is now doing plenty of handling work but is yet to make a return to full first-team training, making it difficult to predict a date for his return. Elsewhere, midfielder Ross Davidson is to extend his loan spell at Stafford Rangers while team-mate Steve Thompson looks set to join him in a stint at the non-league club.
