Match Preview









As you were for Gulls

Chris Hargreaves could name an unchanged side for the third successive game as he takes charge of Torquay at Plainmoor for the first time against Burton.


The Gulls boss named new signing Shaun Cooper on the bench for Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Oxford and named the same XI that beat AFC Wimbledon but he does have a number of options if he decides to shuffle his pack.


Jordan Chapell and Billy Bodin are both pushing for starts as Torquay look for just their second win on home soil since September 21.


Hargreaves currently has former Gulls Danny Stevens and Scott Rendell on trial and decisions on the pair look set to be made before the transfer window shuts, but neither are likely to be involved against the Brewers.


Shane Cansdell-Sherriff comes back into the reckoning for the trip.


Cansdell-Sherriff suffered a fractured cheekbone during the goalless draw at Mansfield on New Year's Day but he is back to bolster Albion's defensive options in Devon.


Adam McGurk could feature after illness forced him to miss the 4-2 home defeat to Fleetwood on Saturday - the Brewers' first league loss in 11 games - but fellow forward Michael Symes (groin) is at least a week away from a return.


Burton boss Gary Rowett, who is looking to sign a striker, also has the likes of Chris Hussey, Adam Buxton, Alex MacDonald, Zeli Ismail and Marcus Holness available for recalls should he wish to make any changes to his starting line-up.
