Port Vale v Crawley Town - Preview

Port Vale in good shape before Crawley clash

Port Vale have close to a fully-fit squad available for their Sky Bet League Two opener against Crawley.

Midfielders Cristian Montano (hip) and Manny Oyeleke (hamstring) are unlikely to be in contention to start but made encouraging returns to action with 45-minute run-outs in the EFL Trophy in midweek.

Scott Brown is expected to return in goal despite an impressive debut from new signing Dino Visser in the penalty shoot-out win over Tranmere on Tuesday.

It remains to be seen if winger Harry McKirdy, who signed for the club on Friday, will be involved.

Crawley will check on defender David Sesay ahead of the trip to Vale Park.

The 21-year-old did not feature in the EFL Trophy loss to Gillingham after hurting his ankle in the warm-up.

Manager John Yems otherwise has no fresh injuries to contend with.

New signing Jake Hessenthaler will hope to make his league debut.

    Port Vale 2 - 0 Crawley Town - Match Report

    Mark Cullen brace guides Port Vale to comfortable victory

    Port Vale’s impressive opening-day record continued after two goals from Mark Cullen sealed a 2-0 Sky Bet League Two victory over Crawley.

    Vale have not lost their first match of the season since 2004 and Cullen made sure that sequence was maintained to secure a deserved win for John Askey’s side, who are now unbeaten in nine games stretching back to last season.

    Cullen had already seen a 19th-minute header parried by Glenn Morris when he broke the deadlock 10 minutes before half-time.

    The goal owed much to an electric run down the left by Devante Rodney who burst beyond two defenders before finding Cullen, who beat Morris with a left-foot shot.

    Crawley had their moments with Tyler Frost forcing two good saves from Scott Brown early in the second half before Vale doubled their lead in the 66th minute.

    Crawley defender Tony Craig had just seen his header cleared off the line by David Fitzpatrick before Vale broke and Tom Conlon curled a shot over Morris which came back off the post to Cullen who guided the ball into an empty net.
