Captain Tommy Fraser made his debut as a 70th-minute substitute and he may be afforded more minutes on the pitch as he steps up his rehabilitation from ankle ligament damage. Kris Taylor, Doug Loft and Geoff Horsfield all made their first competitive starts at Vale Park and will again look to be involved, with Horsfield certain to want to prove a point against his former employers following a difficult spell at Bramall Lane. Transfer-listed quintet Luke Prosser, Danny Edwards, Steve Thompson, David Howland and Danny Glover are again unlikely to feature, with Ross Davidson, who was also made available, now on loan at Stafford Rangers. Goalkeeper Joe Anyon remains sidelined with a broken leg while midfielder Simon Richman is struggling with a pelvic injury. Elsewhere, Adams is understood to be keen to try and resurrect a loan deal for Colchester striker Jamie Guy before the end of the transfer window. His proposed move broke down on Friday after the news he needs an operation to tidy up a knee cartilage injury.
