Match Preview

Gulls without Stanley for play-off finale Torquay will be missing Craig Stanley for the crucial trip to Rotherham. The Gulls need a win to guarantee a play-off place but will have to do without influential on-loan midfielder Stanley, who returned to parent club Morecambe after the 0-0 draw with Chesterfield last Friday following the completion of his three-month loan spell. With Stanley absent, manager Paul Buckle is planning on making changes in midfield, with young duo Damon Lathrope and on-loan QPR man Joe Oastler coming in. That means young player of the season Eunan O'Kane, who came in for Oastler against the Spireites, is set to drop to the bench. Torquay have scored eight goals in their last three away games. Rotherham manager Andy Scott could welcome back a trio of players for the season-ending clash at Don Valley. Striker Ryan Taylor has recovered from a back injury and could go straight into the side to partner Adam Le Fondre in attack while midfielder Nicky Law has overcome a foot injury and should feature. If Taylor and Law are fit they are expected to pull on the Millers shirt for the final time, with both set to reject new deals and leave in the summer. Striker Ian Thomas-Moore could also come back into the frame after a recent thigh injury while goalkeeper Andy Warrington, who has been on the bench in recent weeks following a foot injury, could also make a start. Defender Johnny Mullins remains a long-term absentee as he continues to battle back from a dislocated patella and he will be out well into the start of next season. Scott will give many of his men a final chance to impress as the former Brentford manager looks set to overhaul his squad in the summer with up to 10 players out of contract.

Match Report

Gulls seal play-off place despite loss Torquay clung on to the final League Two play-off place despite falling to a 3-1 defeat at Rotherham. The Millers took the lead after 10 minutes when, after seeing his first effort blocked by Gulls goalkeeper Scott Bevan, Ryan Taylor poked home. And five minutes later, Taylor could have has a second but his header from Jamie Green's cross went inches wide. Torquay equalised after 31 minutes when Chris Zebroski raced to the edge of the area and his angled shot across Jamie Annerson's goal went in off the post. But Rotherham's response was swift. Nicky Law's 33rd-minute corner looked to have been cleared, but Danny Harrison drilled the ball through a crowded goalmouth and into the net. And they should have had a third just before the break when Ryan Cresswell had a clear chance from Harrison's corner, but he directed his header over the bar. The Millers finally wrapped up a first win under Andy Scott 10 minutes from time with substitute Oliver Banks marking his senior debut by firing home from Adam le Fondre's pass.
