Football - Shots hopeful over trio

Relegation-threatened Aldershot could be handed a triple boost for their trip to second-placed Port Vale.

Influential striker Danny Hylton has returned to training having missed the last five matches with a knee injury, while defender Troy Brown has rejoined his team-mates after spending the past seven weeks on the sidelines with a similar complaint.

Goalkeeper Jamie Young has also recovered from a thigh injury which ruled him out of the 3-2 victory over Oxford on Easter Monday, but boss Andy Scott must decide whether the trio are fit enough for selection at Vale Park.

Midfielder Aaron Morris will definitely miss out, however, having suffered cruciate ligament damage against the U's, the Shots' first win in seven matches.

Aldershot, who were not in action at the weekend and now boast two games in hand, find themselves propping up the npower League Two table but are just two points from safety.
