Local Football Update – Stoke, Port Vale and Crewe

Written by on 3 December 2020

The EFL and the Premier League have agreed a rescue package and distress fund to address the immediate financial challenges faced by football league clubs arising as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

A fund of 50 million pounds in the form of a grant and monitored grant payments has been agreed for League One and Two Clubs.

The Premier League will also provide a further financial commitment to assist the EFL in securing a 200 million loan facility that Championship Clubs will be able to utilise interest free.

*****

Stoke City will be checking on the fitness of a number of key players ahead of tomorrow’s home game against Middlesbrough.

Steven Fletcher, John Obi Mikel and Jordan Thompson all missed the midweek win at Wycombe.

*****

Port Vale will be without David Amoo for tomorrow’s trip to inform Bolton.

He injured his hamstring in last weekend’s game.

The Vale are aiming for their first win in six games.

*****

Crewe are set to be without key midfielder Callum Ainley for what the club have described as a substantial period of time.

The 23-year-old is to undergo surgery on a hamstring tear he suffered last weekend.

Meanwhile the club have recalled defender Billy Sass-Davies from a loan spell at National League side Altrincham.
