Match Preview

Robins still missing Elliott Cheltenham will continue to be without centre-back Steve Elliott for the visit of Torquay in npower League Two. Elliott has missed the Robins' last four league matches with a calf strain and, although the veteran defender is making good progress in his recovery, he will not face the Gulls - with Keith Lowe set to deputise once more. Midfielder Russ Penn has a hamstring niggle and is unlikely to be risked, but manager Mark Yates has an otherwise fully-fit and injury-free squad at his disposal. Jeff Goulding lost his place up front to Daryl Duffy for the 1-1 draw with Hereford last time out and will be pushing for a recall. Cheltenham have not enjoyed victory at Whaddon Road for a month and will be looking to amend that statistic and claim the win required to keep them top of the table. Torquay are sweating on the fitness of striker Rene Howe. Howe picked up a groin injury in training last Thursday and missed the 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury at Plainmoor on Saturday. However, the player himself is hopeful of making his return at Whaddon Road in midweek. Taiwo Atieno would be the obvious replacement up front for manager Martin Ling should Howe not be fit enough to take part, having played a crucial role in the Gulls' goal at the weekend. Otherwise, the Torquay boss has no new injury or suspension worries as he looks to lead his side to their seventh straight league victory. Defender Angus MacDonald has signed on loan from Reading until the end of the season, but he was an unused substitute against Shrewsbury and the 19-year-old will have to force his way past one of Brian Saah and Mark Ellis to claim a spot in the heart of defence.

Match Report

Gulls clip Robins' wings Torquay maintained their promotion surge with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over fellow high-fliers Cheltenham. Ian Morris' goal shortly after the hour mark wrapped up the points as the visitors made it seven straight wins to move up to third in League Two, where a solitary point now separates the top five. The Irish midfielder stabbed the ball over the line after Kevin Nicholson's corner had been headed into the danger zone by Brian Saah. Cheltenham finished the half strongly with Kaid Mohamed having a long-range effort saved by Gulls `keeper Robert Olejnik, who then did well to punch clear a fierce Marlon Pack free-kick on the stroke of half-time. The Robins had a glorious chance to level 80 seconds after the restart when a jinking run from Mohamed took him into the area only for Olejnik to deny him with a brave save. The visiting stopper then pulled off a brilliant reflex save 20 minutes from time to deny Russ Penn, the giant Austrian getting down to palm away the shot from 12 yards. Substitute Jeff Goulding was denied by Saah's last-gasp clearance in injury time as the Gulls held on for victory.
