The match officials have now been confirmed for Vale's home fixture against Mansfield Town in Sky Bet League Two this weekend, and Darren Bond has been named as the man in the middle.
Bond has taken charge of 27 games across the 2018/19 campaign so far, and you can find a breakdown of those fixtures below:
21 Sky Bet Championship matches
2 Sky Bet League One matches
1 Emirates FA Cup match
3 Carabao Cup matches
In those encounters, Bond has handed out a total of 79 yellow cards and five reds. He is yet to take charge of a Port Vale fixture this term, with his last coming back in March 2016 as the Valiants came out on top away at Peterborough United.
His assistants for Saturday's game will be Mark Dwyer and Adam Matthews, whilst James Adcock will take up the role of fourth official.
