More misery for Murphy
Stevenage will be without midfielder Darren Murphy for the visit of Torquay after it was confirmed he had broken his leg in a reserve team game.
The 25-year old underwent surgery on a left lower fibula fracture and is unlikely to play again this season.
It is a cruel blow for the player who was just 30 minutes into his comeback from a dislocated shoulder suffered earlier in the season.
The only other player to miss out will be Chris Beardsley, who is still recovering from a dislocated shoulder.
Stacy Long will return after serving a one-match suspension and full-back Ronnie Henry will start in what will be his 250th appearance for the club.
Torquay boss Paul Buckle is likely to be without last season`s leading goalscorer Elliott Benyon for the trip.
Benyon looks set to miss out for the second game running after it emerged he has been suffering from a knee injury and will not be risked until he is 100% fit.
New signing Danny Senda will be hoping for a place in the squad but he is unlikely to make the starting line-up due to a lack of match fitness after missing out on a year`s worth of action through injury.
Striker Martin Gritton will be hoping to retain his place in the first XI, although Buckle may revert back to playing Chris Zebroski as a lone striker after last weekend`s defeat saw them lose top spot.
Stevenage hold soaring Gulls
League Two frontrunners Torquay were held to a goalless draw by a resolute Stevenage side at Broadhall Way.
The visitors clearly had the better of the chances overall, but Stevenage's defence stood firm and just about deserved a share of the spoils.
High-flying Torquay just about had the better of a goalless first half.
Less than two minutes had gone when Danny Stevens fired a decent shot wide and Martin Gritton also went close with a header, while as the visitors continued to dominate, Chris Robertson saw a shot just about clear the crossbar.
Finally Stevenage battled their way back into the game and Ronnie Henry took aim, but his 20-yard drive flew just wide.
The woodwork denied Torquay shortly after the restart.
Kevin Nicholson fired in a wicked shot from just outside the Stevenage box which rebounded back out off the base of a post.
Late on Stevenage rallied and Stacy Long tried his luck from distance, but his shot flew inches wide.
