Torquay Preview

8 March 2013

Full Preview as United travel to Plainmoor

We look ahead to this weekend's big away match against Torquay United.

Team News
United look to get back to winning ways as they travel to Plainmoor on Saturday. The U's lost 4-0 at home to Rotherham in midweek to end a promising run of three wins and a draw from their last four games. That run included away wins at Plymouth and leaders Gillingham, so the U's are looking for a third straight away win.

Andy Whing is available again despite hobbling off in the Rotherham match but United are still without midfielder Lewis Montrose who is ruled out with a hamstring problem.

See Chris Wilder and Michael Raynes previewing the game in Yellow Player along with a  full preview show. 

The Opposition 

New Torquay United manager Alan Knill, a former youth team player with Chris Wilder at Southampton, is in charge at Torquay with Martin Ling sitting out the last few weeks with illness. Knill has already made his first loan signing, bringing in Notts County midfielder Joss Labardie, and he may be looking to extend the loan spell of striker Elliot Benyon after this weekend's game. Torquay may have defender Aaron Downes available after injury.
