The team news reminder
Danny Pugh has made sweeping changes for his first game as Port Vale’s interim manager.
The caretaker boss has recalled Zak Mills, Cristian Montano, David Worrall, Tom Conlon and Tom Pope to his side as Vale look for a response to last weekend’s 4-0 defeat at Mansfield.
Left out are Leon Legge, who is suspended, plus David Fitzpatrick, Danny Whitehead, David Amoo and Scott Burgess.
Conlon is made captain and is back in the side after having to isolate.
Meanwhile Worrall and Montano are back from injury having marked their return by coming off the bench to play for the second half at Mansfield.
The selection looks as though it could be 4-4-2, with Tom Pope and Devante Rodney up front.
Port Vale: Brown, Mills, Smith, Brisley, Montano, Worrall, Joyce, Conlon, Hurst, Pope, Rodney.
