Port Vale's injury problems mount for Swindon clash

Port Vale have a lengthy injury list to contend with for the visit of fellow strugglers Swindon in a crucial Sky Bet League One relegation clash.

Winger Jerome Thomas and midfielder Danny Pugh are both being assessed after sustaining knocks in last weekend's draw at Southend.

They have followed Sebastien Amoros and Kiko into the treatment room after the pair pulled out through injury prior to the game.

Anthony de Freitas, Rigino Cicilia, Tyler Walker, Remie Streete and Chris Mbamba are also on the sidelines but, on the positive side, defender Kjell Knops is available again after suspension.

Swindon duo Nicky Ajose and Charlie Colkett are both doubts for the match after missing last Saturday's defeat to Chesterfield through injury.

Ajose has sustained a minor hamstring strain and is unlikely to feature this weekend while Colkett is also struggling with an unknown problem.

Defender Lloyd Jones was on the bench against Chesterfield after recovering from a hamstring strain and could make his first start in two weeks.

Yaser Kasim, however, still has an ankle problem and striker Jermaine Hylton is expected to miss out after a breach of discipline last month.
