Match Preview

Yates doubt for Valiants Defender Adam Yates is an injury doubt for Port Vale as they prepare for the visit of Torquay. The full-back hobbled off the field with a knee injury in the Valiants' 6-0 mauling to Fulham in the Carling Cup and boss Micky Adams will make a late decision on whether to pick the 27-year-old. Winger Doug Loft is the only absentee as he suffered two broken ribs and a punctured lung during Vale's 1-1 league draw with Chesterfield. Adams has demanded his side bounce back from the disappointing result against the Cottagers. He told the Sentinel: "I'm disappointed with the players both individually and collectively and I think we could have played better. But let's put it into perspective. This Fulham team drew 2-2 with Manchester United on Sunday and we now face Torquay. "Torquay are a good side at our level, but they are not a Fulham because their movement and everything else is not going to be of the same standard." Martin Gritton will return to give Gulls boss Paul Buckle the luxury of a fully-fit squad for the trip to Vale Park. Gritton has been ruled out in recent weeks with a gashed knee but returned to full training this week, meaning all 22 professionals on United's books are available for selection. The Gulls will be looking to maintain their astonishing run without conceding a league goal, which currently stands at a club-record 961 minutes. Defender Mark Ellis has played a key role in this run and he is set to retain his starting place at Vale Park despite Buckle revealing he has received and rejected an offer from an unnamed League One club for the 21-year-old.

Match Report

Gulls stay on course Torquay conceded their first league goal for 998 minutes but still managed to record an impressive victory as they beat Port Vale 2-1 to stay the top of the table. The visitors got off to a flying start when Chris Zebroski burst clear and was pulled down by Vale goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson to win a fifth-minute penalty. Nicky Wroe sent Tomlinson the wrong way from the spot and the visitors added a second when Vale were down to 10 men after Gareth Owen limped off in the 28th minute. Kevin Nicholson's long throw caused chaos in the penalty area and Elliot Benyon laid on a simple chance for Zebroski to fire home from eight yards. Vale were far from beaten, however, and Anthony Griffith lashed his first league goal from 30 yards to reduce the deficit eight minutes before the interval. The second-half was much tighter, with Torquay solid at the back and threatening on the break through Zebroski and substitute Eunan O'Kane. Vale almost snatched an equaliser in stoppage time when the immaculate Mark Ellis cleared a Marc Richards header off the line.
