Football - Late check on Pope

Port Vale boss Micky Adams will check on striker Tom Pope before travelling to Bradford.

PA Sport Report

Vale's top goalscorer was taken off in the 14th minute of Saturday's goalless draw against Shrewsbury with a neck injury but he trained on Monday and could be fit enough to feature against the Bantams.

Fellow forwards Gavin Tomlin and Ben Williamson are in contention to come into the starting XI should Pope miss out.

Jennison Myrie-Williams came off the bench against the Shrews and he is available to start should Adams decide to make further changes.
