Port Vale will again be without Jamie Proctor for the Sky Bet League Two clash with Walsall.
Forward Proctor has not played since October 16 due to a hernia problem and, although he is nearing a return, the game will come too soon.
Defender Nathan Smith is available again after suspension, but striker James Wilson is sidelined by a broken foot.
Walsall will welcome back defender Hayden White.
White missed Saturday’s goalless draw with Rochdale after serving a one-match ban for picking up five yellow cards.
Liam Kinsella is pushing for a start after coming off the bench on Saturday on his return from injury.
Rory Holden (knee) and Zak Mills remain on the sidelines.
