Swansea City now focus fully on trying to win a second successive promotion.
Their attentions have lied with 2 cup finals last week as we won the Premier Cup and the Football League Trophy, netting £500,000 or more in the process.
We now have 7 'cup finals' left and these final games will determine whether we're playing Leeds at Elland Road or playing in front of 3,500 at Layer Road.
Port Vale boss, Martin Foyle:
'Swansea have spent a lot of money this season and have the squad to change things around when they need to,''
'I saw them win the LDV Vans Trophy at the weekend and they look like they are full of confidence. But I'm sure the lads will be up for it.
'We've tended to do well against the top teams this season and I'm expecting the more of the same against Swansea.
Port Vale will be without Nathan Lowndes who has a twisted ankle but Lee Matthews could make his way back after a lengthy spell on the sidelines - not playing since New Years Eve.
Skipper Tony Dinning could also make a return after recovering from a twisted ankle.
The top scorer has netted 9 times in the league this season in 24 starts. Cummins has also scored 7 goals.
Jackett has Rory Fallon and Tommy Williams back available after they were both cup tied for the Football League Trophy final.
After cup success, the manager could field the same side that beat Carlisle last Sunday.
Monk, Robinson and Tate should be available despite picking up knocks in that game against Carlisle.
Played brilliantly on Sunday, lets hope for more of the same from the big striker tomorrow.
The Swans need as many wins as possible in the remaining 6 games and 1 more defeat will rule out the possibility of automatic promotion.
Vale are 15th in the league are safe from relegation and they don't really have a lot to play for, having only won 8 points in their last 8 games.
The two cup wins should have given the squad a big boost in confidence and now that they can focus totally on winning promotion, I think we can get a vital 3 points tomorrow against a side that don't really have much to play for.
