Match Preview
Swindon manager Richie Wellens has no new injury concerns for the visit of Port Vale.

Swindon manager Richie Wellens has no new injury concerns for the visit of Port Vale.

Michael Doughty is making progress with his hamstring problem but will not be fit for the weekend.

Fellow midfielder Danny Rose is available again after missing the last five games with injury.

Rose suffered a torn calf during the 3-2 win over MK Dons on February 9.

Port Vale boss John Askey is likely to be without the services of Tom Pope for the trip to the County Ground.

Pope has missed the last two games with a knee problem and had an injection this week.

Askey said the striker will be assessed before a final decision is made.

On the plus side, the Valiants have won their last two games in Pope’s absence and with no new injury worries, Askey could name the same side once more.
