Haldane: Broke leg in two places
Port Vale physio Andy Foster is optimistic that Lewis Haldane will play this season after the winger broke his leg earlier this week.
Haldane is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after breaking his leg in two places during the Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat at Tranmere on Tuesday night.
The 26-year-old winger was due to undergo an operation on Wednesday but surgery has been delayed because the damaged leg is still swollen.
"The two straight edges of a straight clean break knit back together more easily, but with a spiral fracture it's a little more complex," Foster told the Sentinel.
"So his injury is a bit more serious than a clean break. But Lewis is still young and I would hope he can return to action before the end of the season."
