PAGE HAS TO TURN TO OTHERS
PORT Vale have confirmed midfielder Louis Dodds suffered a broken toe in last weekend’s defeat to Crewe.
Dodds, 28, had started each of Vale’s last seven matches, scoring once, but manager Rob Page must plan for an extended spell without him.
“It’s disappointing news because Louis has been playing very well recently,” said Page. “In the meantime, we have a number of players champing at the bit to get into the starting line-up so we certainly won’t be short of options.”
