Match Preview

Full-strength Crewe Crewe boss Dario Gradi has a fully-fit squad to choose from for the npower League Two visit of Torquay. Highly-rated young striker Max Clayton has recovered from a hamstring problem and is ready to supplement the misfiring Alex attack. Fellow forward Nick Powell could also come into contention after bagging a brace for the youth team in midweek. Utility man Ashley Westwood and striker Ajay Leitch-Smith returned from respective heel and calf injuries in the 3-1 defeat at Aldershot last weekend and are ready to take part once more. In the same game defensive duo David Artell (hamstring) and Danny Shelley (ankle) were named among the substitutes, with the latter making a second-half substitute appearance, and both could be fit to start against the Gulls. Winger Ian Morris is making a rapid recovery from a knee operation, but he will not be fit for Torquay. The former Scunthorpe man went under the knife to have a piece of bone floating in his knee removed and was originally expected to be out of action until December. However, Morris is making good progress and may be fit for the Gulls' FA Cup first-round clash with Chesterfield on November 12. Torquay boss Martin Ling has centre-back Chris Robertson at his disposal after the defender recovered from an ankle knock. But Robertson, an ever-present until the injury, will have to displace either Mark Ellis or Brian Saah in the heart of defence. The Gulls kept clean sheets in both the matches Robertson missed during his time in the treatment room. Torquay hope to have full-back Daniel Leadbitter available after illness.

Match Report

It's Bodin well for resurgent Gulls Billy Bodin scored his second goal in two games as the Torquay made it three wins on the trot, with a 3-0 victory at Crewe. Rene Howe gave the visitors the first-half advantage before Lee Mansell and Bodin both netted to put the game beyond the sorry hosts. Howe fired the Gulls into a deserved ninth-minute lead with a fierce left-footed strike into the roof of the net. The away side totally dominated the opening 45 minutes, with both Bodin and Eunan O'Kane hitting the upright. Howe almost doubled his account but shot inches wide after being given all the time in the world to turn and unleash a rasping 30-yard effort. The Alex offered little with Ajay Leitch-Smith, Byron Moore and Shaun Miller all failing to test the keeper with wayward efforts - while Luke Murphy headed another good chance over the bar. Miller went close with a shot and a header after the break but the Gulls were soon back on the front foot, as Bodin forced Steve Phillips into a one-handed save before Howe dragged a low strike just wide of the post. Mansell then gave the visitors a two-goal cushion, drilling past Phillips in the 54th minute when Alex failed to clear from a corner kick. Bodin put the game to bed in the 68th minute, skipping past Adam Dugdale and slipping the ball past Phillips into the bottom corner of the net.
