Vale boss looks likely to tinker

Adams' thoughts come as a result of Vale's inability to record a win during their opening three games of the league season, with solid draws against Rochdale and Bradford followed up with a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Macclesfield on Tuesday. Adam Yates, Claus Jorgensen, Louis Dodds, James Lawrie and Geoff Horsfield could now all come into the equation at the weekend. Captain Tommy Fraser picked up a knock at Moss Rose and it remains to be seen whether he will be okay but defenders Sam Stockley and Gareth Owen should continue through the pain barrier despite slight calf and thigh niggles. Midfielder Simon Richman has returned to training having overcome a groin problem in pre-season and could feature against the Quakers but the game may come just a bit too soon. Goalkeeper Joe Anyon continues his rehabilitation from a broken leg. Elsewhere, Adams remains interested in bringing Colchester's Jamie Guy to the club on loan when he has made a full return from knee surgery, but that is not expected to be for about another five weeks.
