The hosts are set to be without Joe Anyinsah as they look to bounce back from a "lethargic" defeat to Chesterfield.

John Ward's men were "a little dull" according to their manager as they lost 2-0 to the Spireites and former Charlton winger Anyinsah had to be withdrawn at half-time with an on-going hamstring problem.

The issue, that saw him miss the 2-0 win over Exeter in midweek, means he is a doubt for the midweek encounter.

Fabian Broghammer replaced Anyinsah at the break and he could be handed a start while Ellis Harrison is pushing for a recall.

Rovers are eight points above the relegation zone.

Ryan Burge will rejoin the Valiants' squad for the trip to Bristol.

Burge has missed the last two games with a virus but the midfielder is now over the bug and will return to contention on Tuesday night.

With skipper Doug Loft serving the second game of a three-match suspension and left-back Dan Jones set to stay on the sidelines with a knee problem, Burge's inclusion will be the only change to the squad.

Vale are without a win in four league outings, losing three, and manager Micky Adams is expecting a response from his players.

He said: "It has got to the point now where we have to kick back into action and I think we'll get a reaction.

"I've no negative thoughts in my mind about trying to nick a point and steady the ship. We'll be bold and try to win the game, like we always do."

'Costa Is A Bad Man. Suarez Is Not'

That's quite some claim. And yes, unfortunately we are still talking about this. We also have mails on Ronaldinho, possible replacements for Yaya Toure and more...

Red Mist Better Than Calculated Costa?

Hmmm. We're not sure about this argument - one Mailbox says Luis Suarez is easier to forgive because he is a little loco. We also have mails on Studge and more...
