Football - Lines back in the fold for Vale

Port Vale hope to have Chris Lines back for the trip to League One leaders Brentford.

PA Sport Report

Lines has missed the last two games but the midfielder has been able to take part in light training this week after making a rapid recovery from a cracked rib.

"Chris was able to train on Tuesday but we will continue to monitor him," said manager Micky Adams. "Training is non-contact for him at the moment, but he is running and feels okay. Hopefully he will be okay for Saturday."

Defender Richard Duffy is expected to require a lengthy lay-off after he was carried off on a stretcher with an ankle injury during the draw against Plymouth in the FA Cup so Adams has confirmed that on-loan Fulham teenager Jack Grimmer will make his debut, while Joe Davis is back from his loan at Luton and will also feature.
