Match Preview

Clohessy returns for Shrimpers Southend defender Sean Clohessy is available again after a one-match ban for the visit of leaders Torquay. The right-back missed Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy win against Gillingham after being sent off against Bradford. He now looks set to be recalled against the Gulls while striker Scott Spencer has recovered from a back problem that forced him out of the last two matches. Spencer has been suffering with back spasms but returned to training on Thursday. That means Southend's only injury doubt is centre-back Mark Phillips, who is suffering with a hamstring problem. Boss Paul Sturrock is looking for his side to turn Roots Hall into a fortress, saying: "Away from home we have been very competitive and looked a very good side, but at home we have not reached those heights." Torquay boss Paul Buckle will have a full squad to choose from. Wayne Carlisle is expected to return to the Gulls line-up after being rested for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Bournemouth in midweek. Buckle has praised his squad for taking a punishing schedule in their stride over the past week, although he is glad he has a full compliment of players at his disposal in the event of tired legs becoming a factor. "It isn't ideal to be travelling to Port Vale (last weekend), Bournemouth and then Southend in the space of a week," he told Torquay's official website. "It isn't fair in many ways and the players will probably be feeling it come the weekend, but it's up to us to try and find the right training methods and know when to come off it and when to add a bit more."

Match Report

Gulls crash back down to earth Torquay lost their 100% record as Southend beat the Gulls 2-1 to grab their first league home win of the season. Paul Sturrock's side went in two up at half-time following a one-sided 45 minutes that saw Anthony Grant and Josh Simpson beat Scott Bevan with quality strikes. Midfielder Grant handed Blues the lead in the 15th minute when he half-volleyed the ball into the top-right corner from the edge of the box after Ryan Hall's corner from the right was only half cleared. Southend spent long periods in Torquay's half and doubled their advantage in the 43rd minute when the Gulls lost possession. Midfielder Simpson picked the ball up and unleashed a scorching right-foot shot from 25 yards out to the right of a diving Bevan. Torquay finally pulled a goal back in the 78th minute when substitute Martin Gritton's shot hit the right post and rebounded for Chris Zebroski to slot into the bottom-right corner from six yards. The Gulls should have equalised a minute later but skipper Nick Wroe shot wide from six yards, and Glenn Morris denied Billy Key a stoppage time headed leveller from a Kevin Nicholson free-kick.
