Midfielder Gary Roberts has been suspended by League Two club Port Vale following a serious breach of club discipline.

The 24-year-old failed to attend training on Sunday before reporting in 'unfit to carry out his duties' the following day.

"I am bitterly disappointed in him," said Vale manager Micky Adams. "I have to make sure I am doing my job properly and when we have any disciplinary problems I have to quickly nip it in the bud, and I have to be strong as the club and the supporters deserve better.

"He chose not to turn up or inform anyone he wasn't coming in, what is even worse is that he reported in unfit to carry out his duties on Monday."

Roberts, currently Vale's top scorer with five goals in 11 appearances this season, has been suspended for 14 days and will miss the club's npower League Two games against Crewe and Rotherham.

He was signed by Adams in the summer of 2010 after he was sacked by previous club Rotherham.
