Good afternoon from Walsall. The Vale are back in action in their last game before Christmas and looking to sign off with a win to close that four-point gap to the play-off places.
John Askey’s side are unbeaten in three league games, but that includes two back-to-back home draws, against Colchester and Forest Green, when they created more than enough chances to have won both.
They go into this game in 14th, three places and three points behind a Walsall side who are unbeaten in their last five league games, and have won their last three.
How will they get on? I’m The Sentinel and StokeonTrentLive’s Port Vale FC reporter Mike Baggaley and am blogging LIVE from the game.
So, follow me for all the build up, team news, action and reaction.
