The Irishman played for the final seven minutes of the Gulls' 1-0 defeat at Aldershot on Tuesday, an impressive feat given there were fears his season could be over when he ruptured his Achilles tendon back in late September.
Knill, in charge of the Gulls until the end of the season with manager Martin Ling away on sick leave, watched their disappointing midweek loss under Shaun Taylor and the former Bury boss says he will consult Taylor before naming his side to face Vale.
Torquay welcome Micky Adams' men having lost their last five games, a run which has seen them slip to within five points of the npower League Two relegation zone.
