Match Preview

Gradi ponders striking options Crewe chief Dario Gradi has decisions to make about his strikers ahead of the visit of Torquay. Shaun Miller and AJ Leitch-Smith, making his first start of the season, came in for Joel Grant and Clayton Donaldson against Chesterfield last weekend and ran the Spireites ragged inside the opening half-an-hour at the b2net Stadium as Alex raced into a 4-1 lead. However, Grant and Donaldson were recalled for the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy victory at Macclesfield on Tuesday night. "I think we caught Chesterfield a bit cold with the movement of our two strikers," said Gradi. "Shaun (Miller) is always there or thereabouts and I'd be surprised if he didn't finish as our top goal scorer, while AJ (Leitch-Smith) will score goals too. He didn't manage one on Saturday but he did very well for Shaun's goal. "Clayton (Donaldson) also came off the bench to get a goal and Joel Grant scored in midweek, so I have options. But none of our strikers have done well enough to guarantee a place in the starting XI." Mat-Mitchel-King could be in line for a recall should Gradi opt to change a defence that has conceded nine goals in the last four matches in all competitions. Torquay may be boosted by the fresh face of QPR midfielder Joe Oastler. The 20-year-old has been allowed to train with the Gulls by Hoops boss Neil Warnock and a one-month loan deal could well be struck ahead of the clash at Gresty Road. Oastler`s potential arrival would bring much-needed cover for boss Paul Buckle who was told last week by the club`s board that he will be working under a restricted playing budget for the time being at least. Midfielder Damon Lathrope continues to miss out due to the ankle injury he sustained against Aldershot at the end of September. Buckle rested first-team regulars Scott Bevan, Guy Branston, Kevin Nicholson, Chris Zebroski and Danny Stevens for Tuesday`s Johnstone`s Paint Trophy defeat at Swindon but all five are expected to come back in as Torquay look to end an eight-game winless run. The Devon outfit have scored just three times during that barren spell and striker Billy Kee did his chances of a start no harm at all with an impressive display at Swindon in midweek.

Match Report

Westwood woe for Gulls Ashley Westwood's second-half brace rescued a 3-3 draw for Crewe and stretched Torquay's winless run to nine games. Mark Ellis headed the Gulls into a two-goal lead with just 16 minutes on the clock. First Kevin Nicholson's eighth-minute corner picked out Ellis to nod in unmarked at the far post. Then Nicholson's free-kick was glanced in by the centre-back to leave the Railwaymen stunned. Crewe were thrown a lifeline a minute before the break when Guy Branston handled in the box, but Lee Bell blasted the penalty against the crossbar. But Clayton Donaldson slotted home Luke Murphy's deflected pass 60 seconds later to pull one back. The Gulls regained their two-goal cushion in the 67th minute when Elliot Benyon rolled a quickly taken free-kick to Joe Oastler who picked out Eunan O'Kane to race clear and blast into the roof of the net. But Westwood crashed in a stunning first-time volley from the edge of the box in the 73rd minute. And the midfielder completed the Crewe comeback from the spot three minutes later after Branston brought down AJ Leitch-Smith in the box. Torquay almost the nicked the points at the death but Danny Blanchett was on hand to head Ellis's header off the line.
