Port Vale are squarely mid-table just now, sat 12th having won six and lost six, so what will the second half of the season bring?
The Valiants’ last league outing was 16 days ago, beaten 1-0 by Bristol Rovers, but they were dumped out the EFL Trophy by Salford on Tuesday.
So, Darrell Clarke’s team will be seeking to get back to winning ways here.
Morecambe meantime would love some mid-table serenity, as they’re currently rock bottom.
The Shrimps were beaten again last weekend, this time 2-1 at Plymouth, so are now winless in six.
In fact, Derek Adams’ team have still only won twice all season, making a home win very likely at Vale Park.
