Port Vale player suffers horrendous facial injuries

Port Vale defender Adam Yates suffered serious facial damage after a brutal collision with goalkeeper Sam Hornby in a reserve match.

He fractured his nose, cheekbones and eye socket as well as having a broken upper jaw and wrist following the clash that also required him to have stitches above and below his left eye and must wait to see if there is any long term damage to his sight.

"Everybody's thoughts are with him at the moment because he suffered an horrendous injury in the reserve game," said Vale manager Neil Aspin.

"I have never seen on a football pitch someone get the extent of the injuries he has got.

"It is really bad luck for him and we are all disappointed because we know what sort of lad and character he is.

It is not known how long he will be out of action having left hospital the day after the incident.

"I would like to thank everyone that has contacted me and sent their support in regards to my recent inury," explained Yates.

"After years of a relatively problem-free career, I've suffered the two worst injuries I could have imagined during the past 18 months but the most recent could inflict long-term damage and at this stage we don't know the severity."
