Andy Woolmer will take charge of this weekend's fixture as Vale travel to Swindon Town in Sky Bet League Two.
He has refereed 14 matches across a range of competitions during the 2017/18 campaign so far, with a breakdown listed below:
6 Sky Bet League One matches
5 Sky Bet League Two matches
3 Emirates FA Cup matches
Woolmer has handed out 30 yellow cards across those fixtures and he has also shown a red card on two occasions, but in his last Sky Bet League Two game, no cards were brandished as Luton Town beat Exeter City.
His last Port Vale match came back in October as the Valiants fell to a home defeat against Grimsby Town, with that game being another where he did not book anyone.
Philip Dermott and Mark Russell will be his assistants at the County Ground this weekend, whilst Darren Blunden takes up the role of Fourth Official.
