Vale will be looking to bounce back from the defeat to Colchester United when they travel to Crawley Town this weekend, and the EFL have now confirmed the officials for the Sky Bet League Two clash.
Dean Whitestone has been given the responsibility of being the man in the middle, and he has taken charge of 25 games so far this season, with a breakdown of those listed below:
9 Sky Bet League One games
12 Sky Bet League Two games
3 Emirates FA Cup games
1 Carabao Cup game
Across those matches, Whitestone has shown a total of 75 yellow cards and three reds. He has refereed the Valiants once so far this term, but it wasn't a good afternoon for Neil Aspin's men as they suffered defeat away to Tranmere Rovers.
Nicholas Cooper and Andrew Aylott will be his assistants, whilst Christopher Wade will take up the role of fourth official.
