Match Preview

Red Devils return for Davis Claude Davis could return to the Crawley squad for the visit of Torquay. The centre-half missed Monday night's 2-1 defeat at Shrewsbury after he was called up for Jamaica's midweek friendly in New Zealand. Davis was replaced in the starting line-up by Charlie Wassmer, who made his first start since September. Full-back David Hunt is still missing with a broken foot and goalkeeper Scott Shearer is a long-term absentee with a knee injury so Watford loanee Rene Gilmartin keeps the gloves. Winger Sergio Torres and striker Karl Hawley dropped out of the starting line-up at Shrewsbury and will be pushing for recalls, although John Akinde should keep his place in attack after scoring his first goal of the season. Torquay will be without the suspended Brian Saah. Saah serves a one-match ban transferred to him from team-mate Joe Oastler after the latter was wrongly dismissed for a foul committed by his defensive colleague late on in the 2-0 defeat to Gillingham last Saturday. Otherwise, Gulls manager Martin Ling has a fully-fit squad to choose from, and on-loan defender Angus MacDonald is set to make his professional debut in place of Saah in the middle of the back four. Ryan Jarvis signed on loan from Walsall until the end of the season on Thursday and the striker could go straight into the matchday squad at the Broadfield Stadium.

Match Report

Gulls soar above Crawley Torquay leapt above Crawley to strengthen their promotion challenge as Eunan O'Kane bagged the only goal at the Broadfield Stadium. The Irish midfielder sealed the Gulls' eighth win in 10 games when he drilled home a low shot from close range following a cross by Rene Howe 11 minutes from time. Torquay goalkeeper Robert Olejnik came to his side's rescue after only 10 seconds when he blocked a goalbound shot from former Blackpool striker Billy Clarke. Striker Ryan Jarvis, on loan from Walsall, was introduced for his Torquay debut with just 23 minutes gone after Danny Stevens fell awkwardly and was stretchered off with a leg injury. Crawley striker John Akinde was off target with a header at the far post following a Clarke free-kick 10 minutes before the interval. Town, now without a win in their last four league games, struggled to create many clear-cut openings, substitute Josh Simpson firing wide soon after the break before Akinde rifled a low drive into the side-netting. Olejnik dived to his left to parry a goalbound drive from Clarke, who later shot wide when well placed.
