Port Vale vs Cambridge Lineups & News

Port Vale

The Valiants threw away a 2-0 lead on their visit to Portsmouth and in the end had to settle for a point. Port Vale have achieved only 1 win in the last 6 rounds but their lead over the relegation zone remains healthy (9 points).

Both centre-backs Jones and Cassy are sidelined, both bitterly missed. However, key playmaker Garrity and another important defender Forrester could be passed fit on time. If they can play they are both likely to start too.

Cambridge

Cambridge’s survival chances diminished further after losing 1-2 at home vs Charlton. This was yet another shaky display and the U’s have won only 1 of their last 15 league games. With a serious gap to safety now opened Cambridge have no choice but to start taking extra risks.

The lineup options remain seriously restricted though with 5 players long-term absentees and 3 others doubtful. The continuing absence of the team’s top scorer May and the solid centre-back Taylor is seen as hugely damaging. Now playmaker O’Neil could be absent too as he is classed as a major doubt. McGrandles is set to fill in.
