Football - Adams to check on Loft

Captain Doug Loft could be fit to return to the Port Vale side against Shrewsbury.

PA Sport Report

Loft was left out of the team which won 4-0 at Shortwood United in the FA Cup after sustaining a calf injury and his return would present manager Micky Adams with a selection poser. Vale started the previous three league games with both Loft and Louis Dodds playing out wide but Jennison Myrie-Williams and Chris Birchall impressed on Monday night.

Dodds required 12 stitches above his eye after an accidental collision in training last week but confirmed his fitness with a substitute appearance at Shortwood.

Dan Jones is out of Saturday's game because of a foot problem. The injury means Adams is almost certain to name an unchanged back four.
