Port Vale look likely to have an unchanged squad for the visit of Leyton Orient.

The usual post-match bumps and bruises aside, Micky Adams' men sustained no new problems as they halted a three-game losing run on Saturday with a home victory over Carlisle. Anthony Griffith made his return from a hip injury against the Cumbrians and is not thought to have suffered any ill-effects after completing the full 90 minutes.

Liam Chilvers underwent a minor groin operation recently and the defender is not yet ready to return.

Meanwhile, Doug Loft will make his 150th start for the club if the midfielder keeps his place in the team on Tuesday night.

Leyton Orient are hopeful top scorer David Mooney will be available for the trip to Port Vale.

The 18-goal striker missed Saturday's goalless draw at Notts County due to a rib injury and boss Russell Slade rates him 50-50 to return at Vale Park.

Defender Mathieu Baudry remains a doubt with the hamstring problem which has kept him out of the last two matches, but Slade revealed he could be back for Saturday's crunch clash with promotion rivals Brentford.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones is the only other absentee with his long-term back injury.

Where's The Love For Walcott?

Theo Walcott is wanted by neither Arsenal or Liverpool fans in the afternoon Mailbox. Also, some good points on the FA skewed priorities, and glorious geekery...
