Football - Vale wait on Dickinson

Port Vale will check on Carl Dickinson ahead of the visit of Preston.

PA Sport Report

Defender Dickinson missed the 2-1 victory over local rivals Crewe at Gresty Road on Saturday with an infected shin wound.

Gavin Tomlin may have put himself in the frame for a starting place after impressing from the bench on his return from injury against the Alex. Manager Micky Adams was pleased with the contribution of Tomlin who came on as a substitute on the left wing - his first appearance for 11 weeks having been sidelined with a fractured toe.

"Gavin did a great job, relieving a lot of pressure on that left-hand side," said Adams.
