Match Preview









Knill hopeful on goalkeeping duo

Torquay interim manager Alan Knill is confident goalkeepers Michael Poke and Martin Rice will be available to face Barnet on Saturday.

First-choice stopper Poke, who missed Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Gillingham with a suspected chest infection, will be given a fitness test ahead of kick off.

Rice, who deputised in Poke's absence, picked up a knock during Saturday's game but Knill is hopeful he will recover in time to feature if Poke is not fit.

Winger Danny Stevens (groin) and midfielder Craig Easton (calf) are close to returning to first-team action but this game could come too soon for them.

Knill will be without winger Jordan Chapell after he returned to parent club Sheffield United on Thursday following the departure of Blades boss Danny Wilson.

Barry Fuller will return from suspension for Barnet.

The defender has completed a two-match ban for the red card he was shown after the final whistle following the goalless draw with Dagenham on Good Friday.

Fuller is poised to replace Ross Jenkins in Edgar Davids' squad after the midfielder went back to Watford at the end of his loan spell.

Player-boss Davids is still without Crystal Palace loanee Kyle De Silva, who completes a three-match ban for his red card against the Daggers, while fellow strikers Steve Kabba (knee) and Ricky Holmes (foot) remain on the sidelines.

Jamal Lowe played for the reserves in midweek to build up his fitness and could be involved as Davids is considering playing two up front for the crucial relegation battle.
