Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Vale Park will host Sunday’s festive fixture between Port Vale and Swindon Town. Port Vale aim to put an end to their five-game winless run in the League Two, and a victory over Swindon Town will see them move a little closer to the play-offs berth. The Valiants played out a 2-2 draw with Mansfield Town on Boxing Day, with CJ Hamilton opening his goal-scoring account.
The Robins, on the other hand, rolled over Cambridge United 4-0 in their last league match, with the team cementing top position in the standings. Swindon Town are high on spirits ahead of the trip to Staffordshire, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Keshi Anderson, who scored a hat-trick in the Boxing Day triumph.
