Purse absent for Argyle
Plymouth continue to lack the services of Darren Purse for the visit of Torquay.
The experienced defender, on loan from Millwall, serves the final game of his three-match suspension after his late sending off in the 1-1 draw with Hereford on December 17 and is unavailable.
Fellow defender Curtis Nelson failed to make his comeback in the goalless draw against Aldershot following an injury sustained in training a fortnight ago, but may return against the Gulls.
However, even if Nelson is passed fit, manager Carl Fletcher is likely to continue with the central defensive partnership of Paul Bignot and Maxime Blanchard, who both helped keep a clean sheet against Shots.
Goalkeeper Jake Cole should retain his place after saving Danny Hylton's penalty at the EBB Stadium, while midfielder Ladjie Soukouna is pushing for a start.
Rene Howe is a notable absentee from Torquay's squad.
The striker is unavailable as he serves the third game of a four-match suspension after his second red card of the season during the 3-1 defeat to Accrington on December 17.
Fellow frontman Billy Bodin returned to the squad to face Oxford on Saturday after he was ineligible to face parent club Swindon on Boxing Day, but may have to settle for a place among the substitutes once again.
Bodin's return saw striker Ashley Yeoman drop out of the reckoning, with manager Martin Ling having to decide whether to recall the striker.
Defender Brian Saah is unlikely to be passed fit in time as he continues to nurse a groin problem.
Gulls seal Devon derby double
Torquay completed the Devon derby double over struggling rivals Plymouth with a 2-1 win at Home Park thanks to second-half goals from Billy Bodin and Lee Mansell.
The Gulls had the better chances in the first half with central defender Mark Ellis flashing a header just wide from Eunan O'Kane's 10th-minute corner.
Nine minutes later, Ellis met Kevin Nicholson's corner with a powerful downward header which was superbly saved by Plymouth goalkeeper Jake Cole.
Torquay went in front in the 58th minute when a free-kick from O'Kane was headed back across goal by Chris Robertson and Bodin was on hand to fire in from 12 yards.
Six minutes later, Gulls skipper Mansell met a cross from O'Kane and fired in a first-time shot to make it 2-0.
Argyle responded with skipper Simon Walton surging forward from midfield to head Warren Feeney's deep cross over Torquay goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik and into the path of the onrushing Luke Young, who nodded in on the line.
Young was denied a second goal in the 82nd minute by a superb block from Robertson as Torquay held on for the win.
