Good afternoon from Vale Park. The Vale are back in action for what has become a hugely significant game.
Danny Pugh takes charge of his first match after the club parted company with manager John Askey and assistant Dave Kevan on Monday. So, first team coach Pugh is interim boss.
The Vale are 17th, just five points clear the second-from bottom place currently occupied by Grimsby. They are under the management of Paul Hurst who has replaced Ian Holloway.
So, how will the Vale get on? I’m The Sentinel and StokeonTrentLive’s Port Vale reporter Mike Baggaley and am blogging LIVE from the game. So, follow me for all the build up, team news, action and reaction.
