Port Vale Vs Aldershot Town, Sat 10 Apr 2010

Next Story

Micky Adams could name an unchanged line-up for Port Vale`s home clash against fellow play-off contenders Aldershot.

Adams has seen his Vale side haul themselves back into the promotion picture and they are currently five points adrift of the top seven.

The Vale boss made two changes for Monday`s 3-1 home win over Dagenham from the side that beat Rotherham last Saturday - Lewis Haldane and Adam Yates coming in for Sean Rigg and Kris Taylor to freshen things up.

And Adams could stick with the same XI against Aldershot, although he may opt to tinker again with Tuesday`s trip to Accrington in mind.

Robert Taylor came off the bench to net the crucial second goal against the Daggers that edged Vale in front with 16 minutes remaining, and he will be hoping to get another chance.

Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon is also set to have an unchanged squad for the encounter.

Dillon has seen his team scale the League Two table to fifth after a run of 13 points from the last 15 but they face a Vale side with lofty ambitions of their own.

Midfielder Scott Donnelly should return after he was left on the bench for the 3-0 win over Rotherham on Monday while goalkeeper Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz is also likely to be on the bench.

The Venezuelan was sent off at Bury at the end of March and has seen deputy Jamie Young take his place with a fine run of performances since coming into the side.

Left-back Andy Sandell may be pushing for a place in the squad after six games out with a hamstring injury but midfielder John Halls is still out with a groin injury.
