Port Vale remain without three first-team players as they face Leyton Orient in Sky Bet League Two.
Nottingham Forest loanee Jake Taylor is out with knee injury, with his loan expiring after the weekend.
The 21-year-old should be fit by the end of February but Vale will face competition for the seven-goal midfielder’s signature.
Defender Manny Oyeleke (hamstring) has been out since September while Adam Crookes (groin) has not featured since October but the pair will return to full training on Monday.
Leyton Orient boss Ross Embleton will be hoping to call upon fresh faces as he searches for his first win since getting the job on a permanent basis.
Defender Joe Widdowson could be back after missing his side’s last six games through injury.
Louis Dennison and Connor Wilkinson have both also returned to the fold in recent weeks after injury.
Dean Brill (hamstring), Sam Ling, Jobi McAnuff (both groin) and Brendon Shabani (knee) remain long-term absentees.
