Match Preview

Gulls wait on duo Martin Gritton and Guy Branston are hoping to shake off their respective injuries ahead of Torquay's home game against Bradford. Gritton has missed the Gulls' opening two fixtures with a gashed knee and faces a fitness test on Friday. If he fails to make the squad, manager Paul Buckle is expected to keep faith with Elliot Benyon and Billy Kee in attack. Veteran centre-half Branston is also doubtful after he was forced off in last weekend's victory at Lincoln. Branston has rested for most of the week and a decision on his participation will also be made on Friday, with Kieran Charnock in line to deputise if necessary. United have no further injury worries as they look to maintain their 100% start to the npower League Two season. Bradford defender Steve Williams is expected to return to the squad for the clash at Torquay. Centre-half Williams was dropped for disciplinary reasons last week but could return to the starting line-up after an impressive display in the Carling Cup win over Nottingham Forest. Manager Peter Taylor will be boosted by the return of striker Jake Speight, who missed the 1-0 home win over Stevenage due to a knee injury, while midfielder Michael Flynn returned to the bench last week after a back problem and could play a bigger role. Speight is expected to start on the substitutes' bench. Defender Simon Ramsden remains doubtful due to the calf strain which forced him to miss last week but Taylor has no other new injury or suspension problems. Leon Osborne (groin) and Luke Dean (broken leg) remain long-term absentees.

Match Report

Gulls soar with win Paul Buckle's pacesetting Torquay made it three League Two wins in a row against 10-man Bradford while setting a new club record of 10 successive clean sheets. United have now not conceded in the league for 961 minutes and were ahead within 90 seconds when Danny Stevens ran from the halfway line and picked his spot with a measured drive from 25 yards that left John McLaughlin with no chance. The keeper did better shortly after, though, with Chris Zebroski's effort being handled on the line by Robbie Threlfall, who was dismissed, leaving McLaughlin to save Nicky Wroe's penalty. McLaughlin further impressed with a fine fingertip save to tap Lee Mansell's dipping drive on to the face of the cross bar. However there was little the Bradford number one could do as he tried to clear from Zebroski again in the 66th minute - with the ball rebounding off United's livewire striker and over the line.
