Port Vale vs. Oxford United

Vale Park

15th October 2012

KO: 19:45hrs

On Sky

Port Vale V Oxford United

Chris Wilder takes his team to 2nd placed Port Vale with the U's sitting in 19th place. A win for the yellows would see them jump to 13th in the table.While any other result would not see either team change position in the table.

Luck appears to be getting slightly better for Chris Wilder as he has had between 9 to 10 first team players out through injury.

Harry Worley,Peter Leven & Andy Whing have all made returns to the squad. Also this week has seen Laim Davis, Jon-Paul Pittman, Michael Duberry,Lee Cox, Dean Smalley,Damian Batt, Jake Wright and Alfie Potter return to training.

Still carrying injuries though are Wayne Brown and Michael Raynes. I think most fans know we are sitting in a false league position with players returning and getting match sharp the U's will rise up the table.
