Match Preview: Port Vale vs. Bolton Wanderers

28 July 2015

Port Vale take on Sky Bet Championship side Bolton Wanderers tonight, kick-off 7.45pm, as they look to continue their unbeaten pre-season.

The Valiants have so far won against Newcastle Town, Alsager Town, Kidsgrove Athletic, Notts County and drawn with La Liga side Getafe.


Manager Rob Page could give defender Ryan Inniss his first run-out in club colours since signing his season-long loan deal on Monday.


The defender has been involved in some games for parent club Crystal Palace over the last few weeks. Chris Neal remains sidelined with an ankle injury.


Summer signing Ajay Leitch-Smith will be looking to continue his scoring form against the Trotters. He has bagged four goals so far in pre-season.
