Port Vale: Burge returns to Port Vale squad
RYAN Burge has been included in the Port Vale squad for Saturday's trip to York City.
The midfielder, who has not been involved in the last two matches, still faces disciplinary action over an outburst on Twitter in midweek.
But with skipper Doug Loft and Sam Morsy suspended, he could win back his place in the team.
Burge tweeted that he'd been five minutes away from Bristol on Tuesday night, only to be told he wasn't needed.

It sparked an angry reaction from boss Micky Adams, who claimed the player hadn't turned up for the pre-match meal.
But Adams said Burge would be included in the squad travelling to Bootham Crescent.
"I haven't spoken to him yet," said Adams, "because we've got another game coming around so quickly.
"We've got a free week next week and I'll sit down with him then.
"Ryan has had a good season and everyone can see that.
"But there are ways and means of critcising anybody and we have a policy at this club that they don't criticise the team, individuals or anyone connected with the club through Twitter.
"In the cold light of day, Ryan would understand why we are disappointed with him.
"But I wouldn't want to cut my nose off to spite my face and he'll be in the squad for York."
Morsy faces a two-game ban, having picked up his 10th booking of the season at Bristol Rovers, while Loft serves the last of his three-match suspension for a straight red card in the home game against Bradford City last week.
Winger Ashley Vincent and defender Darren Purse are ruled out, while Dan Jones could also be missing again.
Vincent injured an ankle at the Memorial Ground on Tuesday and is out for "the foreseeable future", according to Adams.
"He's a major concern," said the Vale boss.
"There's no fracture, which is obviously good news, but he had a scan yesterday and there's concern about his ankle tendon.
"He'll have another scan tomorrow.
Jones is continuing his recovery from a knee injury.
"He's had a couple of sugar injections to aid his rehabilitation," said Adams.
"We've not entirely ruled him out for Saturday, but he remains a doubt.
"Darren Purse has a calf strain and certainly won't be involved."
